Jan Aushadhi: Pradhaan Mantri Bhartiye Janushadhi Pariyojna
The branded (Generic) medicines are sold at significantly higher prices than their un-branded generic equivalents, though are identical in the therapeutic value.
Given the widespread poverty across the country, making available reasonably priced quality generic medicines in the market would benefit everyone.
With this objective, the Pharma Advisory Forum in its meeting held on 23rd April, 2008, decided to launch the PMBJP KENDRA Campaign – starting with the sale of generic medicines through dedicated sales outlets called Pradhan Mantri Bhartiya Janaushadhi Kendra in various districts of the country.
It is proposed that at least one PMBJK will be opened in each of the 630 districts of the country to be extended to sub-divisional levels as well as major towns and village centers.
