DIMAPUR — Nagaland Governor, La. Ganesan, has saluted and thanked all the doctors for their dedicated service to help save lives and their effort to provide quality healthcare to patients throughout the country. 

The governor stated this during the 7th annual medical excellence award ceremony of World Tamil Chamber of Commerce (WTCC) in Chennai on August 19. La. Ganesan, who was the chief guest, expressed his happiness to honour the selfless, life-saving medical community.

He stated that doctors sacrifice their family time and dedicate themselves to creating a healthier society at the expense of their own health and sorrows and do the great work of protecting the lives and physical health of all living beings, stated a press release from Raj Bhavan.

The governor also appreciated the president of the Global Organisation of Tamil Origin and the World Tamil Chamber of Commerce, Selvakumar, for doing a great job of identifying the best among the best and honouring them every year.

Honouring the doctors, the governor mentioned that during the Covid-19 pandemic when everyone was afraid to move out of their houses fearing infection, the health professionals risked their lives boldly to safeguard the life of so many thousands and lakhs of people.

He added that it should be the duty of everyone to celebrate and cherish those selfless doctors, nurses and other paramedical professionals and honour them.

While the World Health Organisation stated that there should be one doctor for 1,000 people, the governor however said India has one doctor for every 834 people, which according to him is a great achievement in the medical field.

The governor also underlined that the hospitals in India’s metropolitan cities are improving their medical technology at par with the rest of the world through the intervention of artificial intelligence in diagnosis and robotics and nanotechnology.

He expressed that the quality of treatment is at par with developed countries, especially in the treatments for heart disease, IVF treatments and organ transplants and added that the cost of those treatments in India is less than one-tenth compared to those of developed countries.

La. Ganesan further stated that India now has the world’s largest healthcare scheme called Ayushman Bharat scheme under the initiative of PM Narendra Modi. He added that the scheme has benefited more than 50 crore Indians.

Later, the governor handed over the trophies and mementos to the awardees.
