Jan Aushadhi Stores

The Government India, Department of Pharmaceuticals, launched Jan Aushadhi Campaign in November, 2008 by way of opening up of Jan Aushadhi Stores in the Government Hospitals to make available quality medicines at affordable prices to all, by way of supply of medicines through Central Pharma Public Sector Undertakings (CPSUs) and others. To begin with, at least one Jan Aushadhi Store in each district is intended to be opened, wherever the State Governments taking into account their prevailing Health Policy, extend their support and cooperation in allotting the space in the Government Hospitals or any other suitable locations and also identifying the agencies amongst NGOs, Charitable/cooperative/Hospitals and Government Bodies, to manage such stores.
