SPEAK India’s Health Conclave on March 3 at PGI

Society for promotion of ethical and affordable health care is organizing a conclave on March 3, at 10 am onwards in collaboration with PGI. The venue is the auditorium of Advanced Pediatric centre.  The theme of the conclave is ‘reducing spending on wasteful and unethical medical practices’, according to Dr. R.Kumar, President SPEAK India.  Eminent doctors from among all over the country will advise on protocol for interventions in various specialties so that wasteful practices can be curtailed and medical treatment made affordable.  Another message is that by focusing on wellness the country can reduce the role of doctors and hospitals by 70-80%. This will obviate the need to set up more AIIMS thus saving lot of money of the nation.

The Society will also honor eminent and ethical doctors/hospitals so as to send a message across the country so that we can usher in ‘healthy India’ only, if we make medical care ethical. Five top doctors have been selected for the jury awards.
