About AdvaMed India
Member companies of the Advanced Medical Technology Association (AdvaMed) produce the medical devices, diagnostic products and health information systems that are transforming health care through earlier disease detection, less invasive procedures and more effective treatments. AdvaMed members range from the largest to the smallest medical technology innovators and companies.
AdvaMed’s efforts in India are designed to help address India’s public health challenges by introducing the value of innovative medical technologies to the country’s healthcare system.
These efforts include:
- Contributing towards building India’s healthcare capacity and fostering constructive dialogues with key government officials and opinion leaders;
- Engaging in India’s efforts to develop an appropriate regulatory system that provides a high level of patient safety while fostering innovation and investment.
- Advancing fair and appropriate pricing and reimbursement policies that recognize India's public health challenges and the value of medical technology
AdvaMed welcomes reforms that India is pursuing to make it easier to do business in India, including a recent change in Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) policies that cleared the way for greater participation and investment in India’s medical device market.
AdvaMed is encouraged by India’s ongoing efforts to create an appropriate regulatory framework for devices distinct from pharmaceuticals. AdvaMed will continue to work with our members, India’s health care and government officials, and other stakeholders, to achieve needed medical device regulatory reforms that will ensure greater patient access to life-changing innovation.
AdvaMed’s member companies are keen to contribute toward building India’s healthcare capacity and fostering innovative solutions to solve these challenges. Several of our members have significant operations and investments in India and have a long-standing commitment to ensuring affordability and improved access to medical device technology for all Indian citizens.
