IMA writes to Amit Shah, seeks uniform, effective law against doctors being beaten up

The incidences of healthcare violence have increased over the years and have become widespread and the dreaded entity poses to be threat to the medical practice, the IMA said.

The Indian Medical Association (IMA) has written to Union Home Minister Amit Shah, requesting him to approve a comprehensive, uniform and effective law against healthcare workers and doctors being beaten up. The IMA demanded a strong and effective law to safeguard the healthcare professionals in the country.

In a letter to the Home Minister the IMA said India needs a comprehensive, uniform and effective law against the healthcare violence. We request you to kindly approve an effective and strong act against the healthcare violence. The real size of the problem is largely unknown and recent information shows that the current knowledge is only the tip of the iceberg.

The incidences of healthcare violence have increased over the years and have become widespread and the dreaded entity poses to be threat to the medical practice, the IMA wrote.

The letter to Home Minister comes after a doctor was attacked by a group of people in Assam’s Hojai district yesterday, following a Covid patient’s death.

Reacting to the incident, Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma said such barbaric attacks on the frontline workers won’t be tolerated by state administration.

While the entire medical fraternity stands with you and is working tirelessly during the pandemic, it is also facing a serious threat from healthcare violence. There are many incidences of healthcare violence taking place across the country, the IMA said.
