Delhi Medical Association

DELHI MEDICAL ASSOCIATION came into existence in 1914 under the dynamic leadership of Dr. Rai Sahib Attar Chand, First Civil Surgeon General of India, Dr. M.A. Ansari, Dr. S.P Shroff, Dr. Abdul Rehaman & many other stalwarts of the medical profession & country. The association was constituted during the FIRST WORLD WAR to help the masses & soliders. The interesting fact is that it is older than the National body which is Indian Medical Association (IMA).

Out of the total number of 28 medical practitioners at that time, 23 attended the meeting and thus an organization was formed. This has now acquired its present stature with more than 15000 members on its roll (2020).

Dear Friends,

Can you govern India from outside Delhi?

In its 73 Years existence as an independent nation, the country has not given adequate importance to the health of citizens. Healthcare has never been a priority for the state.

More than a million children, less than five years of age, succumb to disease like pneumonia and diarrhea every year. The Country's infant mortality rate is worse than that of conflict zones like Iraq and Syria.

In 2015-16 more mothers died in India during childbirth than in the rest of the subcontinent- Pakistan, Bangladesh and Nepal did better than us in this respect. What does freedom mean for a woman for whom giving birth to a child is a life threatening proposition?

Our commitment to the Health components of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) of the United Nation (UN) appears shaky. By 2030, the country will have to achieve the highest possible level of good health and well-being for its citizens. This requires everyone in the country to have access to quality healthcare services- no one should face financial hardship because of health reasons. This appears a near impossibility given the current state- of- affairs. A healthcare system in ruins- made stark by the COVID-19 pandemic- does not provide any semblance of hope for achieving the SDG goals.

Our annual expenditure on medical facilities says something about our commitment healthcare- or the lack of it. State spending on healthcare is little more than one percent of the country's GDP. This is way less than some of the world's poorest nations- Ethiopia spends 4.9 percent of its GDP on healthcare, Sudan spends more than 8 percent.

For the first time in our 73 years old history as an independent nation, we are sharing at a crisis that threatens our health and also imperils our existence as free citizens. The pandemic has made us realize what it means to neglect the health of our people. The virus has tested our capacity to bear the pain that the country's healthcare system has become in all these years. It has exposed the vulner-ability of our healthcare models as well as the limitation of the political ideologies in the country.

Big Question is were we ready to cope sustainable health care before and after disaster, DMA/IMS has to play big role which they could not play because of political, administrative & technical in both organization Remote running from outside Delhi possible. If surely only general stays here. I suggest reader to renew and modify in interest of DMA/IMA.
