The Organisation of Pharmaceutical Producers of India (OPPI) established in 1965, represents the research-based pharmaceutical companies in India. OPPI remains committed to supporting the nation’s healthcare objectives and collaborating with all stakeholders to find sustainable solutions. OPPI believes the need for innovation must be balanced with the necessity for more accessible medicines, within a robust IP environment.
The pandemic brought out the true mettle of healthcare provision in India as lockdowns across the nation meant low to zero access to healthcare products, services and medicines. Organizations have been challenged to come up with durable solutions to deliver healthcare to a diverse country like India. And it is commendable to see the increasing entrepreneurial spirit displayed by these start-ups to have risen to the occasion in such a compelling environment.
Furthering its commitment towards pushing the country’s agenda on equitable access to healthcare, OPPI wishes to applaud the efforts of entrepreneurs with its Excellence in Innovation Health care start-up award. This award will recognise the innovative mind-set and digital, social focus to increase the healthcare outreach programs and amplify the access to healthcare products, services, and life-saving medicines.
