Cordaid had been supporting the Delhi Society for Promotion of Rational Use of Drugs (DSPRUD) for promoting rational use of drugs in the states of Bihar and Uttar Pradesh (U.P.) The Programme in association with Cordaid began in 2003. The scope of activities in 2004 - 2006 covered the following:

Bihar

In 2007, Cordaid extended its financial support for further activities to promote rational

following:

Further continuation of the training programmes on rational use of drugs in four districts (Lucknow, Faizabad, Chitrakoot and Gorakhpur) in U.P. and four districts (Patna, Gaya, Muzaffarpur and Darbhanga) in Bihar.

Advocacy

Under the Advocacy programme, a large number of patients and members of the public were sensitized on proper use of medicines through 

- Mass meetings
- Exhibitions
- Magic Shows
- Folk Theatres
    - Film and Scripts  
   
 
     
How can the health budget be optimally applied?

Although, a good percentage of the health budget state-wise is allocated for providing drugs, there are shortages at public health facilities. Rational use of drugs is the solution to optimize budget.
