Bengaluru: The State Government will soon announce a separate allocation of funding for treating Parkinson’s patients in the State through the Suvarna Arogya Suraksha Trust.

Speaking at a Parkinson’s Disease symposium in Bengaluru hosted by Kings College London (KCL) and the Parkinson’s Research Alliance of India (PRAI), he said, “Given the growing patient population in India with Parkinson’s disease and other movement disorders, it’s crucial to focus on technology and research for treatment solutions. I would also like to set aside some funds for such patients’ treatment. This will be announced soon after the discussion.”

During the ceremony, CM Bommai also launched an advanced third-generation D-mine Apormorphine pumps and pens (injections) manufactured by German Pharma major ‘Ever Pharma’ by Celera Neuro Sciences.

Health Minister Dr. K. Sudharakar said that Karnataka has a great health-care and medical-education ecosystem. He stressed that there is a need to increase investments in medical research. “I would like the Rajiv Gandhi University of Health Sciences (RGUHS) to join this great research initiative. We would provide not just professors but also funds to this important Parkinson’s research programme,” he added.
