Doctor’s Day celebrated

By Hueiyen News Service

Imphal July 01: Almost all health care service providers in the state are confined in and around Imphal which is not a good sign at all. There is the need for providing basic health services to the people living in the far flung remote areas, asserted Moses Chalai, Commissioner of Health and Family Welfare, GoM.

Speaking as the chief guest in the Doctor’s Day celebration organized by Lameithanbi Mangal, a health care unit of the ISTV network, K. Moses Chalai said that Manipur has achieved great progress in terms of health care in recent years. There was a time when there were only a few hospitals and health care institutes in the state with hardly a handful of doctors and nurses. Now there are around 1000 doctors and nurses under NRHM apart from the regular ones posted in different government run hospitals and those in private clinics.

“We need to expand and reach out to the far flung and remote areas. This is a big challenge to the health department” he said.  He further went on to say that the commitment and integrity of some doctors are in question. “Manipur is better than many other states, but we are not good enough,” he said.
Mission Director of State Health Society NRHM, N Ashokumar,  Prof. & HOD, Medicine, JNIMS Dr Th Biren graced the function as president and guest of honour respectively.
