Tata Trusts to upgrade Nagaland hospitals

By Correspondent

DIMAPUR, May 5 - Nagaland Governor PB Acharya today stated that Tata Trusts has agreed to collaborate with the State Government for upgrade of the existing district hospitals so that Level 1 and Level 2 cancers can be treated in the district hospital itself.

For this purpose, Tata Trusts will also train local doctors, he added. Acharya was speaking at the inaugural programme of the first mid-term workshop-cum-CME for the East Zone Urological Society of India at Oking Hospital and Research Clinic, Kohima.

�We must also give equal respect to alternative systems of medicine,� he stressed. He stated that AYUSH (Ayurveda, Yoga and Naturopathy, Unani, Siddha and Homeopathy) is a government body for developing education and research in Ayurveda (Indian traditional medicine), yoga, naturopathy, unani, siddha, homeopathy, sowa rigpa (traditional Tibetan medicine) and other indigenous medicine systems.

Stating that as India lives in villages, contagious infectious diseases like water-borne diseases, tuberculosis, respiratory infections, pneumonia, etc., dominate the morbidity pattern, especially in the rural areas. He stressed that this needs to be addressed in an efficient and meaningful manner. Non-communicable diseases such as cancer, blindness, heart diseases and diabetes on the one hand and accidents on the other are also on the rise in rural areas, he pointed out.

The Governor urged doctors to continue to uphold ethical standards for their fraternity. He said the role of doctors cannot be underrated since there is nothing nobler than saving lives.

Appreciating the East Zone chapter of the Urological Society of India and the organisers for conducting the event in Kohima, Acharya hoped the event would focus on the latest advances in urology and provide a forum for discussions, review and approach for prevention and better management of urological diseases.

The Governor stated that the event was the first of its kind to be conducted in the State capital where Nagaland would be included on the urological map in the world. On the live operative workshop on various urological procedures using minimally invasive techniques, Acharya said this would benefit many budding doctors, besides giving opportunities to needy patients.
