Magazine Description

In this issue

Editorial in August Issue This edition puts spotlight on some of the day-to-day health challenges and problems and encourages us to reflect on how we treat the people (health providers) who take care of our health while we are at work. It also explores the causes of increasing incidents of attack on doctors. There are numerous cases of violence against healthcare professionals, and, at times, have resulted in deaths of doctors and nurses by patients’ relatives. A study by the Indian Medical Association (IMA) reveals that more than 75% of doctors across the country have faced at least some form of violence. Nearly 75% of doctors feel that they are unsafe in this country and they fear for their lives. This is a serious problem because as healthcare professionals, doctors should be able to invest their energy into saving lives of people, not their own. In this issue, we also put focus on increasing road accidents and lack of an organised trauma system in India, which has the highest number of road accidents in the world. Every minute a life is lost in road accidents in our country but there is no systematic trauma care centre. We have included articles on prevention and treatment of diseases like hypertension, Spontaneous Brain Haemorrhage, migraine, conjunctivitis, sleep apnea and Traumatic Brain Injury. On that note, I invite you to explore this magazine. So please, sit back and dive into this issue’s selection of articles and discussions. We will look forward to your suggestions and feedbacks for improving the magazine. After all, it is your magazine. We will surely publish the worthwhile comments from our readers. With warmest thanks, Vinod Kumar
