All of us are vulnerable to countless diseases, especially in India, where one-third of our population is forever ailing. India is known as the ‘Pharmacy of the World’, and medicines here are the least expensive, but half of us have no access to medicines. Self-diagnosis and online diagnosis is a big NO. But are we getting the right medicines through legitimate prescriptions we so blindly trust?
Prescription of Life is a story of great scientists, how new medicines are invented, how inventions are based on the knowledge of old inventions, what really happens in our body when deadly diseases strike, and a lot more. It is also a story of pharmaceuticals, healthcare institutions, governments and doctors, where the line between profit making and profiteering is getting blurred.
