"Being a part of the IDA team in Mumbai is a wonderful feeling. Not only am I proud to support IDA's mission, I also feel lucky as the organisation has given me ample development opportunities related to the International Pharma / Non-Pharma Supply Chain Industry. Also, it's delightful knowing that a patient in need has received medication because of IDA’s efforts. "
