Dr K Anji Reddy honoured with Lifetime Achievement award
Dr K Anji Reddy, Founder and Chairman, Dr Reddys Laboratories, has been
honoured with the Lifetime Achievement in Health award in the Asian Voice Political
& Public Life Awards for 2012 in London for his lifetime commitment to medical
research, and improving the lives of others.
Voted by a committee of MPs in Britain, this award is an annual event hosted
by The Asian Voice, a weekly. The award ceremony was hosted at the Members
Dining Room in the House of Commons, London. Satish Reddy, Managing Director
and Chief Operating Officer, Dr Reddys Laboratories, collected the award
on behalf of his father.
On receiving the award, Dr Reddy said, I thank Keith Vaz (Member of Parliament,
Britain and host) and the organisers of this event for the recognition. I consider
myself to be fortunate that my country had given me the opportunity to participate
in the advent of affordable medicine in India. One individuals lifetime
efforts can only touch the surface. I truly believe that the collective effort
of many individuals and organisations will help to further improve access to
affordable medicines, provide better support to our local communities, and make
an enormous difference to mankind as a whole.
