The Associated Chambers of Commerce and Industry of India (Assocham) will organise the 10th Knowledge Millennium Summit ‘Curing the Incurables: Sharing of Innovations’ in New Delhi on January 16, 2013.
Today’s medical sciences irrespective of the systems create effective treatments for diseases and injuries by building on innovations and knowledge. With the convergence of many scientific and technology breakthroughs, the pace of medical invention is accelerating, resulting in better clinical outcomes, less invasive procedures and shorter recovery times, and thus improving overall health of people.
In spite of advances in medical care, we are faced with challenges of rising prevalence of certain incurable diseases like Cancer, AIDS, Influenza, Asthma and Diabetes. Moreover, India is the second most populous country of the world; as a result supply of healthcare services falls significantly short of the demand. Thus, the medical technology industry in India needs to innovate in order to address the challenge of low penetration and meet the healthcare needs of all income segments. Consequently, frugal innovation is the way to go. Frugal approaches to innovation are particularly critical in the Indian medical technology industry to make modern care accessible, available and affordable to all.
The overall objective of the Summit is to deliberate on the innovative methods to cure all chronic and incurable diseases by sharing of innovations in healthcare using all the available therapies viz Modern Medicine, Homoeopathy, Ayurveda, Naturopathy and various other forms of complementary/alternative medicines to bring about a holistic cure and restore natural remission.
Prof. Aaron Ciechanover, Recipient of Nobel Prize in Chemistry in the year 2004 has very kindly given his consent to be the Millennium Speaker this time. His Nobel Prize is recognition for his revolutionary work on characterizing the method that cells use to degrade and recycle proteins using ubiquitin.
