IMA seeks PM Narendra Modi’s intervention amid growing attack on doctors, to hold protest on June 18


The Indian Medical Association (IMA) has submitted a new letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, pleading with him to personally intervene in the peak medical body's concerns over medical workers' safety. The IMA has written to Prime Minister Modi, requesting that he ensure a safe working environment for doctors and other health care workers so that they may perform their job without fear.

In light of the escalating number of attacks against medical personnel, the leading medical organisation has asked the PM to create a "optimal environment" for them.The IMA also stated in its letter that more than 1400 doctors have died since the COVID outbreak struck India in 2020. While applauding the PM's efforts to reduce vaccine apprehension among the general public, it voiced concern about certain individuals' ongoing attempts to propagate misinformation about vaccines and contemporary medicine's evidence-based scientific practises.While applauding the PM's efforts to reduce vaccine apprehension among the general public, it voiced concern about certain individuals' ongoing attempts to propagate misinformation about vaccines and contemporary medicine's evidence-based scientific practises. The prime minister was also advised by the top medical organisation to communicate the message that vaccination is still the most effective way to stop the spread of coronavirus.

In support of these requests, the IMA has declared that on June 18 it will hold a "National Protest Day." The main goal of the Indian doctors' group, according to the organisation, is to ensure that medical professionals can perform with more dedication without fear of physical or mental injury.
