SRINAGAR: The Health and Medical Education Department (H&ME) has said that efforts are being made round to clock to ensure that Jan Aushadhi Kendras are established under the initiative to provide generic medicines at affordable prices with quality & efficiency comparable to branded medicines.

Further, the department said that the PMBI Scheme is aimed to make therapeutic drugs accessible in Jan Aushadhi Stores.

In a series of tweets, Health and Medical Department said, “Dedicated stores known as Jan Aushadhi Kendras are established under the initiative to provide generic medicines at affordable prices with quality & efficiency comparable to branded medicines”.

Doctors will write prescriptions for medicines that will be available at Jan Aushadhi Kendra, benefiting more marginalized & underprivileged individuals, the tweet reads.

“Jan Aushadhi drugs are 50% to 90% less expensive than branded medicines on the open market. To ensure product quality, medications are only purchased from World Health Organization – Good Manufacturing Practices (WHO-GMP) approved vendors”, the tweet reads.

Government agencies, as well as private companies, women entrepreneurs, non-governmental organizations, societies, charitable trusts, and others, are operating the scheme, it said.
