Thanks Dr.Singh for your keen interest in SWASTI.I also fully endorse your views on the role of NGO's and Media in highlighting the cause of rural women.As I said earlier that its our humble beginning but we shall definitely need the support of stalwarts in medicine like you and whoever is committed to the cause of rural women.Thanks a lot for boasting our morale.Swasti shall be in your touch for counselling and expert opinion as per the requirements.
With kind regards,
Dr. Balraj Singh,
Thank you very much for your mail and concern on health issues in developing contries particlarly in our region. You may join a conference on "Population and Health: facing up to the future" to be held at the Max Planck Institute for Demographic Research, Rostock, Germany from 28 October - 3 November 2007. This conference and related concerned persons might be helpful for you in this regard. You may visit our 'conference/fellowships programme' group to join this site.
Many thanks for your noble thinking and wish you all success.
With kind regards,
Thanks for raising the pertinent issues.
As you very well know that all the mess of the kind as indicated is created by our bureaucrats only. While sitting on top they see that all others be let down and respect their supremacy and thats why medial profession is relegated to the present status where doctors are denied even basic facilities sustaining their livelihood. I fail to understand what could really be done to address the situation .
Regarding the pregnancy care of rural women SWASTI shall definitely approach your good self when it takes up the issue in its agenda shortly.
Thanks again for your kind interest in SWASTI.
thanks Dr.Singh for your encouraging comments.Health management in rural India and especially of poor village women is a matter of great concern for SWASTI.Death of a young couple of our working region the other day by snake bite disturbed us badly and it was more shocking that it was not properly handled even by the doctor at PHC of the area.The antivenom therapy was not initiated immediately despite the fact that it was available at the centre.Reason? the doctor was not well trained for such an emergency!And this caused the loss of two precious human lives.Cant this state of affairs be changed ?
