Globally, we now offer a portfolio of 43 innovative, high quality ARV drugs, and the launch of 18 of these products in India represents an exciting first step in this important market. Since Mylan's founding more than 50 years ago, we have been committed to filling unmet needs with our quality products, and we intend to maintain these same high standards with the products we sell in India."
Mylan's Nashik, India facility, which produces the company's finished-dosage-form ARVs for markets around the world including India, has been subject to Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) inspections by several leading regulatory authorities, including the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the World Health Organization (WHO).
Mylan also has introduced a number of ARV innovations, for instance producing single blister "combo" packs, which provide a reduced pill burden and once-a-day dosage.

In addition, Mylan has been a global leader in producing ARV formulations for pediatric use.
