Central Drug Repository

The Foundations most vital program of all is our

Central Drug Repository

With the help of well-meaning individuals, corporate entities and pharmaceutical companies, we collect exorbitantly expensive cancer medicines to dispense them free of cost to those whose needs are urgent but are too poor to pay for the life-saving drugs.

This is our determined attempt to provide subsidized/free lifesaving cancer drugs to Below Poverty Line (BPL) patients. We initiated this program in the Indian state of J&K at a public seminar on breast cancer. It was inaugurated by The Honble Chief Minister Shri Farooq Abdullah and was attended by a cross section of Kashmiri society. The participants included nationally- acclaimed surgical, medical and radiation oncologists, policy-makers and the heads of pharmaceutical companies and the biotech industry. The idea was to stimulate thought, debate and action and contribute to the evolution of cancer care in the Valley.Is is the many poignant cases we encounter during the course of our work that motivated us to set up the Central Drug Repository.
