Doctor’s movement


March 29, 2011: Revolutionary fervor from the Middle Eastern revolutions and Pakistan’s 2009 lawyer’s movement appears to be having a snowball effect.

An increasing number of young doctors, groups and associations are galvanizing support for the Young Doctors Association, the apex body which lent impetus to this movement. Their cause is becoming a rallying cry for drawing attention to a number of systemic constraints in relation to human resource issues as they impact young doctors. Our recent opinion explores the broader policy context.
