Well done, IMA!
2015 April 20
We congratulate the Indian Medical Association for being advocates on behalf of patients and families. IMA has taken a clear stand, which will reduce treatment cost and benefit all, irrespective of their income. The essential elements of IMA’s suggestion are
- doctors must give attention to the cost of medicines
- doctors must write names of medicines legibly in capital letters
- doctors must write the generic name first
- doctors must look for the least expensive brand, and prescribe them
