  Sociology as a vigilant science monitors human society, and how it is affected by different means. Human security is overall a matter of great concern for a large number of developing countries including Asia. The problems emerging in the region are due to background failures and shortcomings. Social measures need to be used to ensure human security, and to spread it among the citizens in a fair way. Human security being an interdisciplinary issue, other social science disciplines must play role to complement it. Biomedical sciences such as pharmacology also highly plays role to further ensure longer lives of the individuals in the society. Currently, due to increasing urban life, more people have access to medicines and clinical nursing. Such a situation has contributed to increasing population worldwide with special reference to Asia. The Asian region accounting for more than 60% of the world's population, is in need of further pharmacological studies in order to meet the needs of its citizens.
