Secretary, Department of Pharmaceuticals, Ministry of Chemicals and Fertilizers, Dr Arunish Chawla, has launched the Meditech Stackathon 2024 in collaboration with Confederation of Indian Industry (CII).

The Stackathon is a groundbreaking initiative designed to catalyse transformative change within India's burgeoning medtech sector by undertaking a comprehensive value chain analysis of select medical devices.

Through close consultation with industry leaders, policymakers, and experts, the Stackathon aims to address critical challenges, foster domestic manufacturing, and reduce import dependence, thereby positioning India as a global leader in medical technology.

The Stackathon would deliberate in eight focused groups namely Cancer Therapy, Imaging, Critical Care, Assistive Medical Devices, Body Implants, Surgical instruments and Hospital Equipment, Consumables & Disposables, and IVD Instruments and reagents, each tasked with specific objectives including segment-wise identification of important medical devices, assessment of import-export dynamics, examination of duty structures, and their implications across the entire value chain.
