Petition to Prime Minister of India
SAVE THE DOCTORS
Respected sir, This is regarding the increasing attacks on doctors in India by the relatives of patients even when it's not the fault of doctors . Recently a doctor in Mumbai was thrashed by the attendants of the patient and it has resulted to him being almost blind with one eye.many such incidents have taken place in the past and still there has been no concrete descion or action has been taken for the safety. on the other hand the court says " start working without safety or leave your jobs" we on behalf of all the doctors demand full security in hospitals and proper reimbursement for the loss of any doctor who suffers from this activity of manhandling by anyone along with severe punishment like jail term and fine for any one who attacks the doctors on duty with immediate action by the police on these kind of activities. Doctors are also humans. this increase of activities can lead to a big revolt in the country by the doctors sir which can already been seen in the country and already a country which has scarcity of doctors cannot afford this. please sir take some strict action for the same and help the doctors by giving them a safe environment to work thanking you, your own son who's proud to be a doctor

Protection of Healthcare Workers during the pandemic COVID-19
COVID-19 a Global Pandemic which has gripped the whole world. It is an emergency situation across the globe with number of infected cases and deaths rising alarmingly high. The global economy came to a standstill. It might take months or years to revive. Government is doing their bit in each country. I respect the 21 days lock down announced by the Honorable Prime Minster of India Shri. Narendra Modi Jee. This is the only way to handle the situation to curtail the spread of the Corona Virus infection. While he asked everyone to stay at home but we still see people are roaming around and conduct large gatherings also. The only set of people who are at the front line who are directly fighting the disease are the Healthcare Workers (Doctors, Nurses, Paramedic staff, Housekeeping, F & B, all other support staff including the Administration. team). We all are rising our lives while the others can stay at home. During the last few days we have seen unprecedented events across the country which includes: 1. Attacks on doctors and other healthcare workers during visit to patients 2. Non cooperative people living in society 3. Attacks on hospital staff by relatives due to patients death at hospital 4. Attacks on Aanganwadi workers 5. People not cooperating for their treatment in quarantine homes 6. Spitting on doctors during treatment 7. Landlords/ societies asking doctor and other healthcare staff to vacate their homes We strongly condemn these events. We need to take stern action on these culprits. My urge to Prime Minster of India is to take strong actions on violators of this law and attacks on healthcare workers. Deploy Army in cities where these incidents are happening. The second biggest challenge the country is facing today is shortage of personal protective equipment. This is a basic requirement to protect the front line workers when they are exposed to hundreds of patients while treating them. We have seen instances: 1. Where doctors were asked to wear helmets & raincoats while treatment 2. Where the healthcare workers has been asked to buy their own protective equipment 3. Scarcity of these PPE’s in the market 4. Some hospitals does not even have the basic had rub solution also We have seen deaths cases of doctors & nurses across the globe while treating COVID-19 patients. My request to Govt. of India & Shri Narednra Modi jee is to provide these essentials to all the front line healthcare workers We need to protect the front line workers otherwise there shall be a scenario where we would have hospital beds to admit the patients but there won’t be any healthcare personnel available to treat these patients Remember the healthcare workers also have families. They are leaving their family behind to fight these deadly diseases. They need to be alive to treat the patients Best regards Srikant Subudhi Healthcare Administrator Bangalore

Increase government seats for Neetpg mds and government jobs for bds
To,Shree Narendra Modiji,The hounorable Prime Minister of India I want to shed lights on the current situation of dentist in our country. Despite of being in very respected medical field and even getting a government seats to study after lots of hard work,there is no future of dentistry in our country. Currently there are no sufficient jobs available in our country for dentist, moreover there is not enough PG seats available for students in compare to UG in this field. As there are seats available in majority for MBBS students only, despite studying in almost equal of years, basic of same education and even equal need for oral care in PHC areas there are no vacancies for dentist in PHC which is one of the major drawback. Currently a general dentist in any area of our currently is earning average 10,000/- a month which is a very serious condition and even 1/4th are not even having any kind of job in their respected fields. This scenario is even getting worse day by day. It is very shameful for our country that people of such field which has very high demand and respect in abroad, the field which counted as one of the best field at international level is suffering from such a critical condition in our so called advancing country. We are just one of those dentist who are surviving in this worst situation and fighting for our right and questionable future. So we demand u to take this under consideration and to take a strong immediate step on this condition.Thank You.

Stop harrassment of medical professionals for unavailability of oxygen or other equipment
Both of my parents are doctors and I've never seen them crack even a bit under patient load for the past 20+ years that they have been doctors, but this is proving back breaking to them too. We are all going through tough times , but we are all on the same boat. I understand that it's difficult seeing a loved one suffer or fighting for their life, believe me, I know how it feels. The main point is that if the hospital you or your loved one is being treated at runs out of oxygen or other equipment at this point of time, don't blame or shout at them. Don't harass the very person who tried to help you. I understand the frustration and helplessness that builds up and threatens to overpower the rational and loving mind,but don't let it. Pause and think and TRY to understand if it's really the fault of your caretaker. I don't ask for much, but please understand that your doctor or medical professional is not at fault. If you don't want to thank them or even like them, it's ok, just don't blame the person who is not at fault. Shortage of equipment is something no medical professional should be held accountable for.I have a few questions and I want my dear reader to ask these to himself/herself( I mean this in the most respectful way and never wish to say that my opinion is superior to anyone else.):- 1.) Are doctors actually responsible for the manufacturing of oxygen? 2.) Would a doctor who barely has enough time to feed himself/herself during the day , waste time by DENYING you treatment and arguing with you ? 3.) Would you blame a labourer to run out of bricks? No. All he/she can do is use those bricks and build something you wish,not manufacture the supplies. In the same way, why do you want to blame a doctor who runs out of equipment which he/she only knows how to use and not manufacture? I know how hard it gets when you hope that you'll be treated and the hospital runs out of a crucial supply , telling you that your hope was for nothing. All I can really do is just ask you to still trust your caretaker and not let anger and frustration get the better of you. I cannot read your mind , but I believe that there's love and trust in everybody, your frustration and anger is genuine , but, still let your inner goodness win. Still hope,stay strong and fight with your frustration! Everybody appreciates support and if you want to help, a 'thank you' or just a smile works. All in all , though gratitude is appreciated, all they want is your understanding and trust. One thing I believe in is , " If you can't say something nice, don't say anything at all". Remember, if our medical professionals win.....we win.

Ensure timely and increased Incentives and PPEs for ASHA Workers
Is the value of an ASHA worker just Rs33/day? Vardhini( name changed) is an ASHA(Accredited Social Health Activist) worker from a rural district in Odisha. She delivers food, medicine, and emergency medicines to rural families. She also conducts door to door surveys and educates people about necessary precautions. She works tirelessly to render essential health services in the district despite being vulnerable from the corona outbreak. Sometimes she and her friends spend money from their own pockets to buy masks, gloves, sanitizers, etc as they don’t receive these essential protective gear from the government. But what does she get in return? A meager remuneration of approximately Rs 1000 for corona virus-related work. This amounts to a meager amount of Rs 30-33/day. Sometimes, there is a delay in receiving this incentive. And the monthly honorarium(wage) of Rs 2000 that she receives is inadequate for managing the expenses of her family. This is the plight of an ASHA worker in a single district. There are around 9 lakhs ASHA workers in India who are discharging their duties and working tirelessly for the wellbeing of the rural people. But in these dire circumstances of the corona pandemic, they are underpaid and overworked. The struggles of the ASHA workers have been overlooked by the government and there has been persistent institutional neglect towards their problems. Our Prime Minister recently announced an economic package to assist the economy and our workers. Since ASHA workers are a crucial interface between the community and the health system, I would want the following demands of ASHA workers to be taken into consideration: 1) Increase in honorarium and incentives of ASHA workers 2) Timely disbursement of incentives 3) Adequate provision of masks, gloves, and PPE. Given, that we have expressed our gratitude to our frontline health workers, it’s time to express our gratitude to our real wonder-women as well. And the way to do that is through ensuring that their concerns get their much-needed recognition. Sign my petition asking the government to take Suo moto cognizance of the concerns of ASHA workers as they are not only contributing to our nation as health activists but play a vital role in ensuring the rural health mission runs smoothly. Let's get together by signing and sharing this petition because #ASHAkiAsha matters! (23/06/2021) UPDATE: ASHA Workers across the country continue to be on strike asking for better incentives. Here are a few more demands of ASHA workers that require immediate attention. - Defined and proper working hours- Recognition as government workers- Planned leaves Picture credits: The Indian Express

Hospital For Sindri - With more than 1 lakh residents, Sindri has no hospital yet.
With more than 1 lakh residents, Sindri has no hospital in the near vicinity. The 500 bed FCIL hospital was closed in 2003. Even for basic needs, a patient has to travel at least 30kms to obtain ordinary Healthcare help. To put things into perspective, this is not even a case in some of the deep villages of the so called present modern India. There already have been numerous cases, where people have lost their lives because of simple illness or minor accidents, just because they could not reach the nearest hospital in time. People are dying year after year and even then, there is absolutely nothing being done! Sindri as a town has always had a very rich heritage and a glorious past. Residents of this town are now well placed at every nook and corner of the world. They also occupy prestigious positions both in the corporate and in Government dispositions. Considering the ongoing pandemic and the disastrous effect it has already had on the entire world, having basic Healthcare services is the least this beautiful town can get. Kindly note, we are not asking for an adventure park, a swimming pool, or a shopping mall; we simply need a hospital, and we need it badly. This petition calls out every present and past resident of Sindri to understand the gravity of the situation and to help us meet a basic requirement of a hospital. We need your help & support!

A demand for a separate cadre of health professionals in line with IAS, IFS, IPS etc
As early as in 1961, the Mudaliar Committee in its report had also recommended to the government for the formation of a central healthcare cadre. IMS would provide efficient health care managers to enhance the success of health projects and formulate policy, and the course of action for fighting diseases. COVID has exposed the lack of coordination and collaboration between the public and private sector in view of the inadequacy of health facilities. IMS could be a game-changer. It is a matter of record that such a service exited in British India. IMS would bridge the gap between decision-making and delivery. IMS cadre could hold health-related administrative responsibilities at the district level, state and national level. IMS will be responsible for holding the administrative responsibilities pertaining to the district medical officers, project officers of various disease control programmes, and the various ranks of secretaries in the Union health ministry and the state health departments and the heads of all other areas in the health sector. Basic qualification to be eligible for the IMS examination should be MBBS, and the exams can be conducted like other UPSC exams. Terms of service conditions, posting, recruitment, and other criteria can be similar to those applicable to the IAS and IPS. It is not that the government is not seized of the issue. In fact, successive governments have looked at this issue, but there has not been much progress on this front so far. The plight of individual doctors in India though is not hidden from anybody. While the government has not been able to improve its public sector hospitals, it is trying to pin all responsibilities on doctors. Successive governments have been ignoring public health due to a deficiency of doctors in government hospitals. Instead of improving the public health sector, the governments have been trying to put the responsibility of public health on shoulders of private doctors. For these reasons, an exodus of doctors to other countries is taking place, which is further deepening the crisis of brain drain. IMS can help in curbing many ill-factors such as policy-implementation gap, brain drain, violence against healthcare professionals, and medical education by helping formulate guidelines and laws to curtail many of these ill-factors.
