Unqualified Medical Practitioners In India

Unqualified Medical Practitioners In India

The project is is based upon first hand observations from field surveys in the district of Panipat in Haryana and research of published work relating to the medical treatment provided by Unqualified Medical Practitioners. The combination of these two inputs present the status of health care in informal settings and the dependence of poor people on unqualified medical practitioners, despite such practice being completely illegal. The report attempts to address the situation arising out of the current dependence of poor people on such practitioners, and analyses why it may not be feasible to either regularize or eliminate them in the near term, but if one could reduce the harm they can do, that in itself would be major step forward.
