Offer Medical Help to People Outside the Country Too: Indian Minister to Doctors

Union Minister of State (Independent charge) for Commerce and Industry Nirmala Seetharaman has said that it's time Indian doctors consider taking their knowledge and expertise to other parts of the world.

Inaugurating a Vitreo Retinal Symposium 'Reticon' organized by Dr Agarwal Eye Hospital, Chennai, South India, she said the experience and expertise of Indian doctors was recognized across the globe.


"In places like Africa, South East Asia, and even Europe, there is a need for quality medical care. Whenever people from countries in these regions come in for bilateral talks, they emphasize their support for Indian medical establishments who are willing to set up hospitals in those nations," she said.

She also said that Indian doctors should come forward and establish medical centers in places like Africa. "The countries are willing to give their sovereign support to set up establishments there and train the doctors to be able to provide quality medical care," she added.

Stating that eye was the most important organ of all, she said any attempts towards its betterment was praiseworthy. She also hinted towards protection for workers working in unfriendly atmosphere. ''People employed in salt pans for example, are prone to blindness faster for their continuous exposure to sunlight. If doctors, experts here (who have assembled for this symposium) could do something for them, it would be praiseworthy," the union minister said.
