The Indian Medical Association (IMA) has asked its state and local units to raise funds from member doctors to organise conferences and functions instead of seeking sponsorship. This decision was taken in view of allegations about pharmaceutical companies and the device industry shaping the content and style of medical conferences.

Additionally, The Continuing Medical Education (CME) programmes, organised by units of the IMA, were asked to have a disclaimer that the update was organised purely on evidence-based medicine and was not influenced by the industry or any other external factors.
