Cipla announced a first-of-its-kind initiative to improve access to nebulisation therapy specifically for patients in the rural sections of the country.
Cipla aims to distribute 5000 nebulizers to primary health care setups in India where nebulisation therapy is not available currently, thus enabling access for the masses. These CHCs (Community Health Centers) /PHCs (Primary Health Centers) across several states in the country namely – Maharashtra, Uttar Pradesh, Rajasthan, West Bengal, Andhra Pradesh, Telangana, Tamil Nadu, Uttarakhand, Punjab, Sikkim will be adopted by Cipla to create good nebulisation centres, spread awareness regarding the therapy and undertake training for the associated paramedical staff on the science of safe nebulisation practices.
Intending to address the low awareness around nebulization in acute disease management, Cipla is also attempting to create a World Record of making the ‘largest nebulizer sentence’ with these 5000 nebulisers. The statement reads ‘Breathe Free.’ and it will be recorded in the Guinness Book of World Records.
