Introduction of American Business Practices in Health Services in Mid 80S has Spoiled the Image of the Medical Profession

KARACHI — Introduction of American Business practices in the Pakistan’s health services in 1985 has spoiled the image of the medical profession which is at its lowest ebb in the society these days. Most doctors do not enjoy the same respect which the public used to give them. Words like serving the humanity after becoming doctor now look hollow. Medicine is not more a profession but it has become a trade. History taking from the patients is now termed encounter with the patients who are now called clients. This was stated by Prof. Ejaz Ahmad Vohra an eminent physician and Dean of Postgraduate Studies at Ziauddin Medical University. He was speaking at the inaugural session of seminar on Cardio Metabolic Syndrome organized by Pakistan Islamic Medical Association (PIMA) where he was invited as a chief guest. The seminar held at Convention Centre of Liaquat National Hospital was largely attended by members of the medical profession. Continuing Prof.Ejaz Ahmad Vohra said that today he has come to the meeting with a very heavy heart. Like all other Pakistanis, he was also very sad and depressed when he said that it was unfortunate that at this age one had to see the second day of shame in Pakistan’s history. After December 16th 1971 when we lost half the country East Pakistan which became Bangladesh, May 2nd 2011 when the American forces attacked the Osama compound in Abbottabad because of our lapse of security was the second Day of Shame in Pakistan’s history. We must hold our leaders accountable. He was of the view that if we did not probe, identified those who are responsible for this Day of Shame and did not punish them, we may be facing yet far greater crisis in the days to come. God Almighty also forgives the sins of individuals but does not change its rules for Nations. If they do not become responsible, these Nations are destroyed as is evident from the history.
