Pristine Pearl Pharma Pvt Ltd, a patient-centric entity, is on a mission to mitigate the daunting situation of medication error in India. Through the means of education programs, the firm gathers patients from rural areas and engages them in its CSR activities including awareness programs, while explaining the application process to ensure reduction of error.

India Pharma Outlook interacted with Mohamed Ayoob to know more.

The global generic drugs market is expected to reach $507.8 Billion by 2026. How do you see this market developing in India?

With several Indian pharmaceutical manufacturers expanding their operations to meet the global demand for vaccines and other Covid-related drugs during the epidemic, India was at the forefront of the global effort. Over 200 nations are now served by India's pharmaceutical exports, which are projected to reach $90 billion by 2026 and contribute roughly 18% of the growth of the global generic industry.

The rising cost of drug development along with an increasing number of drugs coming off-patent is creating new opportunities for the Indian Pharma Industry. Today, both the developed and developing countries are looking toward India for the development of cost-effective and reliable drugs in the field of cardiology, respiratory, neurology, and many more.

What are the major expectations that customers have from the players in this segment? How do you strategize to meet those?

More significantly, in the respiratory market, where patient knowledge and drug delivery methods are critical, a dearth of proper information on the application of dosage turns out to be a massive challenge. Hence, it is imperative to educate the public on the types of health complications and the treatments available.

At Pristine Pearl, we have developed certain instructional programs and demonstration services to emphasize the importance of inhalation therapy's effective use. Our programs aid the patients in effectively using the device in a self-sufficient form. In addition, Pristine Pearl is offering client support services, which will help customers with all aspects of managing the equipment.

Pristine Pearl intends to use digital marketing to raise awareness on the issue pertaining to patients' medical conditions and to link them with the appropriate doctors for treatment. Additionally, the firm is also looking forward to educating the clients about the quality of a given drug and the benefits and drawbacks that go along with them.
