    (IAP President 2020)

    Dear Friends,

    It gives me a great pleasure to write to you on this prestigious platform of IAP. A venture so big and ambitious that few would have dared to think about it and even fewer would have had the passion to actually go about creating a reality from a dream.

    How important is a drug formulary book to a doctor? I feel it is as essential as the first cry to a neonate. I say this because in today’s world, there are a number of drugs available in the market, with varied compositions and combinations. It is very easy for a doctor to get lost in the sea of new drugs that are available every day.
