Invitation- Know Whats wrong with Clinical Establishment Act in context of Maharashtra


Consultation on the proposed Clinical Establishment Act in context of Maharashtra on 12th of March, 2013 at 3 pm at College of Social Work, Nirmala Niketan, New Marine Lines

 

 

Jan Swasthya Abhiyan (JSA) is the Indian circle of the People’s Health Movement, a worldwide movement to establish health and equitable development as top priorities through comprehensive primary health care and action on the social determinants of health. The Jan Swasthya Abhiyan coalition consists of several hundred organisations as well as a large number of individuals that have endorsed the Indian People’s Health Charter adopted in the year 2000.

 

State government is moving to adopt the National Clinical Establishments Act in its existing form in Maharashtra.  While the National Act in its existing form has certain positive provisions, its implementation is likely to remain quite inadequate, since it does not specify any dedicated regulatory framework to ensure implementation of provisions, the manner of regulation is not participatory or accountable (opening the likelihood of totally bureaucratic regulation without much scope for civil society organizations to promote interests of patients), and there is no mention of patients rights.

 

The Mumbai Chapter of Jan Swasthya Abhiyan is organizing a consultation on the proposed Clinical Establishment Act in context of Maharashtra. The Consultation will be held on the 12th of March, 2013 between 3 pm and 6 pm at College of Social Work, Nirmala Niketan, New Marine Lines.

 

There is significant interest among civil society organisations regarding this act, since there is an urgent need to regulate the current private medical sector. There is need to build awareness in society about the significance of this act, especially  given certain amount of resistance and misinformation from sections of the private medical profession regarding the act. 

 

This consultation is aimed at developing a clear understanding about the proposed Act and its implications on people’s 

access to quality health care.

 

A panel comprising of an advocate, a representative from JSA and the President of Indian Medical Association, Mumbai  will be addressing the participants at the consultation.

 

You are requested to kindly attend the consultation.
