By bringing the best of Annual EAU Congress, this program will provide Indian Urology practitioners an opportunity to get accustomed with the latest advancements made at a global level and to apply these global best practices for patients in India.

This is the first time such a program will be conducted in India, and will see a select group of world-renowned urologists in attendance to discuss clinical practices and key research developments in the field.

Commenting on the development, Mr. Rajeev Sibal, President India Business at Lupin, said, “India has seen an increasing prevalence of urological ailments possibly due to an increase in expected lifespan. Urological ailments, besides the inherent morbidity, also severely impact the day-to-day quality of life, including social and personal aspects coupled with significant economic burden. The urological ailments have increasing incidence with age and, may also be driven by sedentary lifestyle. Due to the necessity for constant knowledge upgradation of the medical professionals, there is a regular and compelling need to not only get the recent developments but get it straight from the experts. With that objective in mind, Lupin, for the first time ever in the Indian Pharma Industry, has collaborated with EAU (European Association of Urology) to bring the ‘Best of EAU18’ conference to the Indian Urologists with the ultimate aim of improving the healthcare for the patients. In keeping with the academic focus, we at Lupin are driven to continue such initiatives not only in the field of Urology but also other important specialties.”
