As envisioned by Hon’ble Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi, “Every Indian deserves accessible affordable and high-quality healthcare”. To implement this vision, the Government of India has undertaken multi-dimensional interventions to expand the imprint of health facilities and implemented initiatives like PM Ayushman Bharat Health Infrastructure Mission, AYUSH, Promotion of Generic Medicines through Jan Aushadhi Kendras, Technology enabled eSanjeevani for providing integrated telemedicine solution among several others.

Gujarat, the pharmaceutical hub of India, has shown immense growth in the area of healthcare and wellness centres. The well-equipped medical facilities, healthcare centres, and appealing tourist attractions make Gujarat one of the most favourable states to opt for medical tourism in India. The Production Linked Incentive (PLI) scheme for the bulk drug and medical devices provides further impetus to the growth of the pharmaceutical sector in the state.

The seminar will deliberate upon measures and initiatives in realizing the vision of universal and affordable healthcare with a focus on the cohesion of policy, technology and medicine to come up with the best-in-class medical services.
