Dr. V. M. Katoch, Honourable Secretary to Govt. of India, Ministry of Health and Family Welfare- Department of Health Research and Director General, Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) joined `Indian Initiative for Management of Antibiotic Resistance (IIMAR)`. At the `National conference on Antimicrobial resistance` organised by AAI-DU at Allahabad, India, Dr. A.J. Tamhankar explained to Dr. Katoch about the formation of `Indian Initiative for Management of Antibiotic Resistance (IIMAR)` and requested him to join IIMAR, to which he readily agreed. Like us Dr. Katoch has a view that a comprehensive, integrated and all inclusive view needs to be taken in the management of diseases as
well as in the management of `antibiotic resistance`.
Along with him Senior Deputy Director General (SrDDG) Dr. K. Satyanarayana and Assistant Director General (ADG) Dr. Sadhana Srivastava (ICMR) and Dr. D. Chattopadhyaya, ADG, Directorate of Health Services, also joined IIMAR.
