New Delhi: Jan 11, 2010
Almost 80 per cent of the rural population is without access to basic public health and this fact should be considered seriously. Voicing concern over the poor state of rural health services, the Delhi High Court has asked the Health Ministry to consider launching a special medical course of three years to bring out doctors to man primary healthcare centres in the country. A division bench comprising Chief Justice Ajit Prakash Shah and Justice Rajiv Sahai Endlaw asked the Union Health Ministry and the Medical Council of India (MCI) to consider changing the MBBS curriculum so that basic health facilities can be provided to the rural populace.
