Related News On March 19the parliamentary standing committee on healthwhich should champion the cause of millions of people deprived of healthcare in Indiachose to support the cause of the Indian Medical Associationa trade union of doctors The committee released a report that rejected the Union health ministrys plan to create a cadre of mid-level practitionersknown as community health officers (CHOs)to deliver primary healthcare much closer to village homes than the current three-tier system offers These CHOs would be recruited and trained in their native districts through a focused three-and-a-half year programmeand stationed at sub-centres (serving roughly 5000 people) where they would manage common health problems and emergencies and quickly refer complicated cases to doctors at higher facilities The government is developing this programme under a legal mandate provided by the Delhi High Court in response to a public interest litigation filed by us in November 2009 The need for this PIL arose after the IMA repeatedly obstructed expert committee recommendations for such a programmearguing that the Indian Medical Council Act allows only MBBS graduates to deliver any clinical care The MBBS degree is more a colonial hangover than a gold standard It has become the gold standard by having been around for a long time In 1946when the Bhore Committee designed Indias public health systemthe MBBS coexisted with the licentiatea three-year diploma in medicine In a move criticised by its own membersthe committee abolished the licentiatealthough licentiates formed two-thirds of registered practitioners and were available in rural areas The Bhore Committee gave the same reasons that the IMA and its mouthpiecethe parliamentary standing committeeis repeating today They feared that quality would be dilutedand there would be different types of doctors for rural and urban areas But we know a lot more about quality todayand that demolishes this argument Two statesChhattisgarh and Assamadopted the three-year model (through state legislations)with positive outcomes A study led by Krishna Rao at Public Health Foundation of India found that rural medical assistants in Chhattisgarhtrained through the three-year modelwere as competent as MBBS doctors in primary-level management of diarrhoeapneumoniamalariaTBpre-eclampsia and diabetes AYUSH (AyurvedaYogaUnaniSiddha and Homeopathy) doctors and paramedics fared significantly lower The other argumentthat this course will create two different types of doctorsis equally untenableas there is no intention of replacing doctors at rural facilities by CHOs The programme is designed to address a huge gap at the fourth tierwhere no doctors are present City dwellers with multiple treatment options may find it difficult to believe that most rural households and a good number of urban poor ones are unable to access qualified doctors Out of every 100 health provider visits in rural areas70 to 90 may be to unqualified providers as they are nearest to village homeseven providing doorstep careto approximately 1500-2000 population On the other handgovernment doctors (at PHCs) cater to 30000 plus population and are far from village homes With poor public transportationno sick person (women and children in particular) can be expected to walk 5-25 kilometres to the nearest PHC Every village needs a small health clinic within 1-2 km that provides first-level management of common diseasesalong with preventive care This lies at the heart of equitable healthcarebut has been woefully neglected by our health planners and policymakers for years Indias high burden of child mortality and malnutrition are direct outcomes of this neglect Pneumonia and diarrhoeatwo of the biggest childhood killersare treated largely in the informal sector Poor management of infectious diseases (besides food) is an important determinant of child malnutrition: infections deplete childrens nutritional storesleaving them vulnerable to more infections and further malnutrition We need providers with the right core competencies and attitudesrather than qualificationsfor different health needssuch as skilled birth attendants and not necessarily gynaecologists for normal pregnancies and childbirths Similarlyprimary care providers could also be defined by a set of core competenciesirrespective of whether they are doctors or mid-level practitioners But by stubbornly clinging to a doctors-or-nothing approach for primary carethe IMA is succeeding in keeping millions of people in persistent deprivation This is not an egalitarianbut an immoralposition It is imperative that we make trained primary providers available as quickly as possible to our 800 million rural population and roughly 80 million urban poorbalancing available resources with equityefficiency and quality In 2011experts including Srinath Reddy (presidentPHFI)Devi Shetty (chairmanNarayana Hrudayalaya)T Sundararaman (directorNational Health Systems Resource Centre)Vinod Paul (head of paediatricsAIIMS) and ourselvespresented this evidence and more before a previous parliamentary committee The new committee has acknowledged it all and yet recommended that the government should not go ahead with the course Their advice to the ministry: devise new strategies like open more medical collegesincrease intake of MBBS and nursing graduates and enforce compulsory rural postings for MBBS graduates Dear parliamentariansthese strategies are neither new nor successful The new ones are what the ministry is proposing Fortunatelythe standing committees recommendations are not binding upon the ministry that must decide independently where its accountability lies with the people or
