IMA as on today
 
A meeting of the IMA Action Committee & State Presidents' & Secretaries' Annual Review Meeting was held on 27th August, 2017 at New Delhi where following issues were deliberated and passed:
  • IMA is planning an IMA fast for nonviolence on 2nd October where every doctor will fast from Dusk to Dawn and will continue its efforts in persisting with its demands with the government, the nonviolent way.
  • IMA is against criminal prosecution of doctors unless mens rea or an intention to harm can be established.
  • IMA takes strong objection to the application of Section 308 on doctors of Gorakhpur Medical College for administrative lapses. The concerned officers could have been suspended/transferred, as is usually done, so that a fair inquiry can be conducted, but not to charge them with penal provisions until the report of the inquiry. The recent widespread violence in Haryana after Ram Rahim was convicted was also due to a system failure. But, only the DSP was suspended. Also, Section 308 was not applied in this case. 
  • IMA has requested that all health care providers (interns, PG, doctors) to be mandatorily given vaccination by their employers.

Premature hair loss is a problem that is increasing in incidence among young Indian men due largely to stress and lifestyle factors.
