Dubai, October 13, 2017: After the successful launch of the first edition of the Best Healthcare Brands in India in 2016, The Economic Times announced the Asian edition of the book in Dubai, UAE. It was at the recently concluded Economic Times India-UAE Strategic Conclave held at Westin Dubai that insightful discussions on the opportunities and challenges for Asian healthcare brands came to light.

The Economic Times Best Asian Healthcare Brands 2017 was unveiled by H.E. Sheikh Nahyan bin Mubarak Al Nahyan, UAE’s Cabinet Member and Minister of Culture and Knowledge Development. The initiative was based on an extensive survey conducted with their Knowledge Partner, Mena Research Partners, and shortlisted top brands under various segments of healthcare after considering several parameters. These brands were eventually felicitated and featured in the coffee table book which was launched at this summit. During the summit, The Economic Times unraveled the DNA of success of these brands, and what makes these brands worthy of emulation in the healthcare Industry.

The Asian healthcare market is expected to grow from $1835 billion in 2016 to over $2660 billion by 2020. This is mainly due to improved access to healthcare facilities amid increased government and private investments in addition to government initiatives that promote medical insurance and foreign investment. Cumulatively, this has seen a rise in the demand for healthcare services and pharmaceutical products.

Commenting on the significance of the summit, Deepak Lamba, President, Times Strategic Solutions, said, “The huge population, large economy, and advances in technology make Asia an attractive market for healthcare services. We are excited to explore the dynamic Healthcare sector and analyse its strengths and the challenges on its way.”

Talking about the opportunities for collaboration in the Healthcare Sector between India and UAE, Dr. Naresh Trehan, Chairman and Managing Director of Medanta, highlighted the advances in healthcare services offered to consumer, also underscoring the growth of medical tourism in India by stating that 15% of his patients hail from overseas at any given time.

Padmashri Dr. B R Shetty, Founder & Vice Chairman, NMC Healthcare delivered the special address and said, “India is one of the largest capital markets and is very lucrative for investments. We are planning to open up medical universities and hospitals in the urban, rural and tribal areas of the country. We are starting with institutions for Medical, Ayurveda, Siddha and Yuana in Amravati, Delhi, Noida and Varanasi. We are also opening up an American university here in UAE.” Dr. Shetty also encouraged the delegates to invest in UAE.

Some eye-opening statics on Nutrition and Healthcare in Asia were shared by Mr. Anshu Budhraj, CEO, Amway India, who elaborated on the benefits of a smart healthcare approach. Highlighting that UAE stood at 84 but India came in at 143 on the UN’s Sustainable Healthcare Index, he said, “These statistics raise many questions as we are a nation that is achieving 8-9 percent growth rate every year. Clearly, economic growth and healthcare index may or may not go together. There have to be specific policies, specific investments, and focused approach for this sector to grow. If we increase the life expectancy of one person by 10 percent it would lead to an economic growth of 0.5 percent. That’s how healthcare impacts the economic prosperity of a country”.

The Asian healthcare brands were felicitated by H.E. Abdullah Al Darmaki, CEO, Khalifa Fund for Enterprise Development; H.E Navdeep Singh Suri, Indian High Commissioner to UAE; Suhail Muhammad Ansari, Executive Director, Mubadala Healthcare and H.E Saif Jamal Al Jarwan, Secretary General, UAE International Investors Council in a gala ceremony.

Compact and high-speed powder filling

  • Output of up to 480 vials per minute
  • Number of filling points can be individually selected
  • Optimal use of work stations thanks to the new transport system

New Delhi, October 08, 2017: Stuttgart / Crailsheim, Germany – As part of an exclusive machine presentation in Crailsheim from September 18 through 29, 2017, Bosch Packaging Technology introduced the latest addition to its AFG series. The filling and closing machine for pharmaceutical powders in glass vials offers manufacturers a wide range of options. “During development, our main focus was on flexibility,” explains Dieter Bandtel, product manager at Bosch Packaging Technology.

“With the AFG 5000, customers can choose between several different versions and various features. In addition, we have significantly increased the output rate in the high-performance segment.”

New variable transport system

Based on a single machine platform, the system can accurately fill both large and small amounts of powder. Customers have the choice between one filling point for an output of 160 containers per minute through to three filling points for up to 480 vials per minute. Thanks to the vacuum-compressed-air filling system, the output remains high even with small filling amounts. For all versions, customers can choose between statistical or 100% in-process control of dosing weights.

“To optimize efficiency, we have developed a new, flexible transport system for the AFG 5000,” says Bandtel. “While the vials are continuously fed into the machine, the transport system adjusts the speed of the following processes to precisely match the rhythm of the individual work stations.” Whether filling, weighing or closing of vials – each stage is optimally paced. The new vertical transport system was designed to prevent idle time or bottlenecks. Rotating carrier systems, known as shuttles, transfer the vials quickly and safely to the respective work station. Once the vials have been sealed and taken out of the system, the shuttles quickly return to the infeed, ready for the next transport run.

Compact and efficient design

In addition to flexibility, we particularly focused on compact design during the development of the AFG 5000. “Our customers’ powder filling takes place in class B cleanrooms, where every centimeter counts in terms of operating, maintenance and cleaning costs,” explains Bandtel. Apart from the vertical design, the separation of the compact filling station from the intake and output reduced the amount of space that must be cooled and cleaned with sterile, dry air. A further space-saving feature is the optional air-treatment system, which can be installed outside the sterile area.

All components that come into contact with the product can easily be disassembled for cleaning and sterilization. The result is an easy-to use machine with only few format parts, offering customers substantial space- and cost- savings. In line with Bosch’s pharmaceutical line competence, the AFG 5000 can be combined with upstream cleaning machines and sterilizing tunnels, as well as downstream capping equipment to create a complete line for safe and reliable filling processes for pharmaceutical powders.

  • Less than half (42%) are confident that they know what changes to their breast could be a sign of cancer
  • A quarter (25%) think that a lump is the only sign of breast cancer that can be identified without medical equipment
  • Avon India launched #PayAttention, an initiative educating women to take up a self-examination to detect early symptoms

New Delhi, October 08, 2017: Only two in five people (42%) are confident about recognizing the changes to their breasts that could be a sign of cancer, according to a new survey of 19,000 respondents by Avon Products, Inc., the world's leading social selling company. The findings come in synch with the launch of their India initiative #PayAttention addressed to men and women alike, to take up a simple breast self-examination to detect early symptoms. 70 per cent cases are curable when detected early. The findings also show there is a knowledge gap amongst women globally about what the symptoms are for breast cancer and how to lower the risk of developing the disease. The World Health Organization estimates that breast cancer kills more than 500,000 women globally every year, a number that could be greatly reduced if cancer were detected at an earlier stage. Despite 73% of respondents saying they look out for changes to the appearance of their breasts, many report that they aren't confident recognizing the early signs of breast cancer. Moreover, more than half of those surveyed (60%) would hesitate to seek medical advice for a variety of reasons, including embarrassment, fear and not having access to a regular doctor.

Speaking on the launch, Mr. Rahul Shanker, Managing Director, Avon India said "Avon is a company built by women, for women and it is our responsibility to bring real value to their lives beyond great products. Today, Avon is the leading corporate supporter of the Breast Cancer cause globally. Many of our representatives, around the world raise funds for breast cancer programs and also provide a global army of educators, offering information and raising awareness around the world."

Swati Jain, Director of Marketing, Avon India added, "We are proud to be taking this meaningful cause to a local level while touching many lives affected by breast cancer. Globally, we have been supporting this cause for many years and will continue to pledge our support to battle breast cancer. This year, we aim to continue our efforts to educate women about breast cancer with the hopes of saving more lives."

The survey also found a lack of knowledge when it comes to identifying signs and knowing the risks of breast cancer, which may be due to a lack of information – 30% said that they haven't been given any information about changes to their breasts that could be a cause for concern. A quarter (25%) think that a lump is the only sign of breast cancer that can be identified without medical equipment. When asked to identify 10 common symptoms of breast cancer, only 2% managed to select all 10 correctly. There is also low awareness of some of the important lifestyle factors that could prevent breast cancer, with almost two-thirds (64%) unaware that exercise could help lower the risk of developing breast cancer. Similarly, 63% of those surveyed do not know that alcohol consumption is linked to a higher risk of breast cancer.

Over the last 25 years, Avon and the Avon Foundation for Women have donated more than US$800 million globally to breast cancer causes, educated 180 million women about this disease, and funded breast health screenings for nearly 20 million women. Avon will work with a host of educators, partners, health organizations and experts to deliver greater public awareness of breast cancer and make sure every woman knows how to take action. Avon India has already tied up with Indian Cancer Society and I-CONGO, an amalgamation of NGO's that work to drive action in India. Through the #PayAttention Campaign, and the support of partners such as Indian Cancer Society and I-CONGO, Avon wants to educate women to take out less than five minutes every month to do a breast self-examination.
