What's going on in India?
I know I have no readers (yet!) and that I'm mostly doing this to gain a wider perspective on the current state of medical education in the world. But somehow I can't bring myself to begin to write about what's happening in India. Why? Well, here's what I know:
1) a lot of doctors have gone on strike for higher wages
2) the government is really mad and doesn't want to give them higher wages
Who is right? What is going to happen to public health in India? Are doctors holding health hostage? Is the government blocking well-deserved payment? Can anyone with a clear perspective through the argument provide a coherent summary?
