Azad targets doctors for refusing to go to rural areas
Accusing doctors of putting pressure on the Medical Council of India (MCI) so that it does not approve the Bachelor of Rural Health Care course, Azad said that he would approach the MCI again and ask the Board of Governors to recognise the degree. The course seeks to create a qualified cadre of health workers to be posted at sub-centres.
Initially mooted by the MCI, during the tenure of the then president Dr Ketan Desai, in a state health ministers conference, however, the course was endorsed unanimously.
