About 52 lakhs medical injuries are recorded in India, of which around 98,000 people die every year. Also, it is a matter of serious concern that around 10 people fall victim to medical negligence every minute and more than 11 die per hour due to medical error and negligence. This was highlighted by a nationwide movement called Stop Medical Terrorism – an initiative by a group of victims and supporters under the platform of Dr Anamika Ray memorial Trust, Guwahati.
The group demands better healthcare facilities in the country with zero tolerance to medical negligence. The first advocacy meeting of this national campaign is being organized at Bishnu Nirmala Auditorium, Near Latasil field in Guwahati at 3pm on May 14.
The group requested the victims of medical negligence and supporters of this movement for their cooperation and presence in the programme.
