Doctors To Go On Nationwide Strike On Dec 11, Know Details

New Delhi: The Indian Medical Association (IMA) on Tuesday gave a call to all doctors practicing modern medicine to withdraw non-essential and non-COVID services on December 11 in protest against a Central Council of Indian Medicine (CCIM) notification which authorises post-graduate practitioners in specified streams of Ayurveda to be trained to perform general surgical procedures, Medical Dialogues reported.

Stating that the notification by CCIM to allow the legal practice of surgeries by Ayurveda practitioners and the formation of four committees by Niti Aayog for the integration of all systems of medicine will only lead to “mixopathy”, the IMA demanded an immediate withdrawal of both.

“Launching the freedom struggle of modern medicine from the forces of mixopathy, IMA has directed public demonstration activities and withdrawal of non-essential and non-COVID services on December 11, 2020, from 6 AM to 6 PM,” it said in a statement.
