'Country needs more health volunteers than doctors' 15.4.2014 deccanherald.com
United Nations-World Health Organisation Regional Advisor (retd) Derek Lobo has said that to enhance the health sector in the country, India needs more health volunteers than doctors. "India has 360 medical colleges producing 40,000 doctors annually. Still, the infant mortality rate and maternal mortality rate could not be checked. As the majority of people who have no access to healthcare are in rural areas, we want more health volunteers to address this grave issue." Lobo was delivering address at the foundation day celebrations of NGO Health Care Foundation here on Saturday. To substantiate his argument, Lobo said that in many African countries National TB Manager or National Leprosy Manager are non-medical personnel and those countries have a commendable track record in eradicating diseases like Malaria, TB and Leprosy. He elaborated that to cure Malaria, TB and Leprosy, doctors are not inevitable but health volunteers are a necessity. "We should look at health care in a wellness perspective and not ...
