About IAPP

Over the years medical care has evolved in India with more than 75 % of the population being catered to by the private sector. This is a sizable number, given the population of our country is the second largest in the world. Thus the need of a professional organization to take care of the professional and academic interests of the private sector was born. Some felt that their specific needs require special emphasis, which is not possible in a mainstream organization.

In Jan 2000 during a symposium in Kochi some colleagues highlighted the imperative need for such an organization. Thus began a series of consultations by Dr. Kala, founder president of the IAPP with various psychiatrists across the country. Many had similar ideas and were keenly supported the idea. Thus in April 2000 the IAPP was formally formed with the 1st conference in Delhi . It was inaugurated by the then Health Minister of India.
