Summit explores mutual growth opportunities between Canada and India

TORONTO, Ontario, May 20, 2015:  TORONTO, Ontario, May 20, 2015:  Generic drugs, South Asian health issues, digital health and healthcare collaboration initiatives were some of the important topics discussed at the two-day Healthcare Summit hosted by the Canada India Foundation (CIF) in association with Toronto Rehab Foundation and the Indo Canada Business Chamber (ICBC).

Prominent speakers at the forum included Dr. Jeremy Desai, CEO and President Apotex Canada, Mr. Rahul Reddy, Senior Vice President, Apollo Hospitals, India,

Dr. Madhukar Pai, Canada Research Chair and Director of Global Health, McGill University, Dr. Rakesh Vyas, Gujarat Cancer and Research Institute, India and

Dr. Naheed Dosani, Palliative Care Physician, William Osler Health System, St Michael’s Hospital Inner City Health Associates, among others.

Ontario Minister of Health, The Honourable Eric Hoskins, opened the event followed by a number of panel discussions featuring the who’s who of the Canadian and Indian Medical fraternity and industry in the most ambitious two-day event focusing on South Asian health and research and trade collaborations between Canada and India in the Healthcare corridor.

Dr. Hoskins said: “I spent nearly a decade as a doctor and humanitarian in war torn regions of Africa and around the world. That experience has made me a firm believer in the benefits of holding discussions like this to learn from one another, share our expertise, and work together with our partners to improve healthcare services and patient outcomes around the globe.”

The Canada India Healthcare Summit took place on May 19 and 20 at the Omni King Edward Hotel in downtown Toronto and discussed South Asian health issues such as Diabetes, Stroke, Rehabilitation, Long-term Care, Digital Health and Smart Hospitals, Distance Care, Rural Care, Pharmaceuticals and Generic Drugs, Research Collaboration, Wellness, Alternative Healthcare Policy and Healthcare policy as well as explore business and investment opportunities in healthcare in Canada and India.

“Canada India Foundation’s theme-based forums have become the signature events for serious multi-dimensional recommendation-focused conversation on opportunities for Canada and India to expand bilateral trade and strengthen relations”, says Dr. V.I. “Lucky” Lakshmanan, Co-Chair of the Summit and also Chair of CIF.  This is the fifth theme based Summit hosted by CIF.

“While previous forums on Energy (2009), Mining (2010), Agriculture and Food Processing (2012) and Infrastructure (2014) were predominantly trade focused, the Canada India Healthcare Summit has both business and social dimensions and is clearly our most ambitious event to-date,” says Dr. Lakshmanan.

CIF is partnered, in the organization of the Summit, by the Toronto Rehabilitation Institute, part of the University Health Network, as well as the Indo-Canadian Business Chamber from India.
