BIIS: Invitation for technology students to work on grassroots innovations
SRISTI in collaboration with BIRAC (Biotechnology Industry Research Assistance Council, Department of Biotechnology, Govt. of India) is organizing two three-week BIIS (Biotech Ignition Innovation School) for validating, value adding and product development around grassroots innovations. The BIIS will also take up a few cases of developing solutions for grassroots applications for human, animals, and agricultural applications including herbal technologies, medical devices and microbial solutions. First BIIS will be held in Ahmedabad, December, 9-29, 2017. Currently, we are in the process of talks with the universities in the region for further collaboration in this event.
During BIIS, the selected students will be assigned individual projects in primarily three action-research areas drawing upon mainly Honey Bee Network Database :-
1. Pharmacognosy /Phytochemistry - SRISTI’s Grassroots database contains many traditional knowledge practices as well contemporary innovations from across the country. These projects would involve validation/value addition to these practices. A few of these practices are presented here- http://www.sristi.org/cm

s a Microbial Bank containing 8000+ organisms (bacteria, fungi, and actinomyhttp://www.sristi.org/cms/sho cetes) isolated from the soil samples collected in Shodh Yatras from different parts of the country ( dhyatra). An extensive study of screening these isolated microbes for novelty and their potential human, animal, and agricultural benefits would be conducted.

Objectives of the scheme:
Making quality medicines available at affordable prices for all, particularly the poor and disadvantaged, through exclusive outlets “Jan Aushadhi Medical Store”, so as to reduce out of pocket expenses in healthcare.
Application for PJMS
The Jan Aushadhi Scheme – a genesis
It is a well-known fact that branded medicines are sold at significantly higher prices than their un-branded generic equivalents, which are just as good in the therapeutic value they provide. Therefore, if reasonably priced quality generic medicines are made easily accessible and available in the market, everyone would benefit. With this objective, the Pharma Advisory Forum in its meeting held on 23 rd
April, 2008, decided to launch the Jan Aushadhi Campaign. To fulfill the aforesaid objective, a Task Force comprising senior officers of the Department of Pharmaceuticals, Chief Executive Officers of Pharmaceutical Central Public Sector Undertakings (CPSUs), representatives of the Pharmaceutical industry, NGOs/charitable organizations and State Governments, and most importantly, doctors from reputed national institutions like the All India Institute of Medical Sciences, Maulana Azad Medical College and Ram Manohar Lohia Hospital, was constituted.. Senior representatives of the World Health Organization were also invited to these deliberations. The Task Force held extensive discussions and unanimously recommended launching the Jan Aushadhi Campaign, starting with the sale of generic medicines through dedicated sales outlets in various districts of the country. It was proposed that the campaign be launched in association with the Central Pharma Public Sector Undertakings (CPSUs) viz, Indian Drugs and Pharmaceuticals Limited (IDPL), Rajasthan Drugs and
Pharmaceuticals Limited (RDPL), Hindustan Antibiotics Limited (HAL), Karnataka Antibiotics Limited (KAPL) and Bengal Chemicals and Pharmaceuticals Limited (BCPL) as part of their Corporate Social Responsibilities agenda.
t was proposed that the Jan Aushadhi Campaign be implemented initially for the period of 11 Five Year Plan starting from 2008-09. The Department proposed to open at least one JAS in each of the 630 districts of the country so that the benefit of "quality medicines at affordable prices" is available to at least one place in each district of the country. If successful, depending on the cooperation of all stake-holders, the scheme was proposed to be extended to subdivisional levels as well as major towns and village centers by 2012.
The key objectives of Jan Aushadhi Scheme are to;
make quality the hallmark of medicines by ensuring supplies from the CPSUs and also through other PSUs and GMP compliant manufacturers in the private sector.
extend coverage of quality generic medicines, which would reduce and thereby redefine the unit cost of treatment per person.
provide access to any prescription drug or Over The Counter (OTC) drug in all therapeutic categories as generic equivalents.
not be restricted to the beneficiaries of Public Health System but also to serve others.
create awareness through education and publicity that quality is not synonymous with high price
create a demand for generic medicines “By All for All” by improving access to better healthcare through low treatment costs.
also involve State governments, Central Government, Public Sector Enterprises, Private Sector, NGOs, Cooperative bodies and other institutions, being a public welfare programme.
develop a model which can be replicated in other countries of the world, in pursuit of their common goal of achieving affordable quality health care.
The Jan Aushadhi Scheme was accordingly formulated and approved in the Standing Finance Committee Meeting of 01/02/2010 in consultation with the Planning Commission. The Planning
Commission approved Rs. 24.25 crores for the 11, 4th Plan Period of the Scheme for opening 626Jan Aushadhi Stores (JASs) in the first phase.
