Shamik Ghosh started this petition to Pharmaceutical Companies and

Health care in this country has often become an unaffordable service for teeming millions in this country. 
One of the major causes is the unavailability/ irregular availability of low cost medications. 

There are three medications widely available in the developed world but mysteriously missing in production in our country especially for the Paediatric population. 

We  have to pressurize the Pharmaceutical industry to overcome the non-availability of cheap medicines and produce adequate numbers for the masses . 

The  medications are:

a) Trimethoprim-Cotrimoxazole Suspension- an important and first line antibiotic which is effective in treating urinary tract infections and many other infections 


b) Nitrofurantoin Suspension - yet another first line antibiotic that comes up as a sensitive antibiotic on most Urine Culture reports but is scarcely available. 

c) Liquid Dexamethasone- an anti inflammatory steroid that has a magical value in croup and in defeating the cytokine storm in COVID-19. 

Millions of rupees go in importing and manufacturing costly medications of doubtful clinical value .

Lets raise our voices so that the Government of India makes it mandatory for Pharmaceutical giants to make these affordable low cost medications.
