Letter to Prime Minister by IMA - Satyagraha 2016
 
To
Shri Narendra Modi
Honourable Prime Minister of India

Respected Sir
 
Indian Medical Association is the largest Medical Association of the world. IMA is a voluntary body constituted by doctors practicing modern system of medicine. It represents the collective consciousness of over 2.7 Lakh doctors in all the 686 districts of India organised in 30 state and 1765 Local Branches. 
 
Indian doctors have contributed significantly in achieving Millennium Developmental Goals and are now working hard to achieve sustainable developmental goals including reduction in maternal mortality, infant mortality, road traffic accident deaths, HIV, TB and Malaria. IMA is actively participating in Swachh Bharat Swasth Bharat Abhiyan and Pradhan Mantri Surakshit Matratav Abhiyan.  IMA as a nation builder has volunteered its services for the success of all the national programmes. 
 
We are concerned about the threats perceived by the profession in general and hardship suffered by individual doctors in particular. To be able to participate in various national health programmes and continue giving our best to the community, we need your intervention in the following:
  • Anywhere in the world, medical profession is bestowed with reasonable autonomy. This autonomy is to provide the flexibility required to keep pace of the rapidly advancing science. Patient care and Patient safety are the main benefits of such autonomy.  Regulators need to have autonomy and be independent of Administrators.  The proposed National Medical Commission will be a regulator appointed by Administrators under their direct control. IMA supports suitable amendments in the existing IMC Act. IMA is against scrapping it totally and making it a non autonomous body.
