The objectives are to:

  • Initiate discussion on the new health policy for India and the 'National Health Assurance Mission', with a clear mandate to provide universal healthcare that is not only accessible and affordable, but also effective, safe and of high quality for the patients/consumers
  • Share information on the existing regulatory mechanisms and adverse drug reaction (ADR) reporting system/ Pharmacovigilance to ensure safety and quality of medicines in the healthcare delivery is paramount and never compromised in the interest of the poor and most vulnerable patients in India and abroad
  • Prepare an implementation plan on patient awareness and education on safe and quality medicines made available globally with stress on accessibility to quality healthcare in India and other developing and least developed economies
  • Finalise an Action Plan on how to tackle the menace of Substandard, Spurious, Falsely-labelled, Falsified, Counterfeit (SSFFC) medical products found in the supply chain in India and globally.


After successfully conducting the 1st International Workshop on “Patient Safety and Drug Detection Technology” in New Delhi, India on 10-11 September 2012 and the keen desire to promote safety and quality of medicines in the supply chain by all the participants, Partnership for Safe Medicines (PSM) India Initiative along with AIWC and IPF has decided to organize the 2nd International Conference on “Patient Safety & Access to Quality Healthcare” in Haridwar, India from 6-8 November 2014.

The organizers have selected Haridwar because of only one reason; visit beautiful Haridwar (India) located on the banks of River Ganges in the State of Uttrakhand to exchange knowledge and technology on how to enable quality healthcare products and services made available in India and globally with the concept of “MAKE IN INDIA”, which is not only comparable to the best but made accessible in abundance in remote locations of India and abroad without any discrimination. Come and Join the Patient Safety Movement.
