The Vidhi Centre for Legal Policy cordially invites you to the event ‘Prescribing a Cure: A Discussion on Drug Regulation in India‘ on 14th December 2021 at 6:30 PM IST

Prescribing a Cure promises to be a deep dive into the world of Indian drug regulation. In this event, we hope to discuss the practical issues arising out of the current nature of the drug-regulatory framework. Through this conversation, we aim to break through insider-outsider silos to constructively prescribe ways to improve the drug regulation system in India.
