About the Indian Association of Private Psychiatry
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. The subsequent conferences were at Jodhpur, Cochin, Varanasi & at Chennai. In addition to this the Mid Term CMEs have been conducted across the country on various topics close to the heart of private practioners. Symposiums on Attempted Suicide, Workshop on Art of Psychiatry & Research Strategies For the Clinician in the 21st century were other notable initiatives.
The IAPP is a fast growing organization both in terms of membership and activities. This has been possible because of the enthusiastic efforts from our fast growing fraternity.
In the years ahead new initiatives are being planned in the areas of ethics, regulatory system, govt. policy vis a vis private sector, accreditation of CME programs, treatment guidelines & data bank.
Indian Journal of Private Psychiatry publishes bi-annually focussing on all aspects of mental health and neurosciences.

Why open access publishing?
Restricted access to scientific research and advancements through subscription pay wall hinders communication within the scientific community. Moreover, restricted access can also hinder the education and dissemination of scientific knowledge to the aspiring younger generations who are keen to pursue a career in science. Increased productivity and development of science can only be achieved by diffusing knowledge and providing the facilities for creating permanent repositories such as Open Access.
