The Governor also appreciated the President of the Global Organization of Tamil Origin and the World Tamil chamber of commerce Selvakumar for doing the great job of identifying the best among the best and honouring them every year. Even though it’s not possible to honour everyone, it definitely inspires the awardees and all the medical professionals to do even better.

Honouring the doctors, the Governor mentioned that during Covid-19 pandemic when everyone was afraid to move out of their house fearing infection, the health professionals risked their lives boldly to safeguard the life of so many thousands and lakhs of peoples. La Ganesan added that it is our duty to celebrate and cherish those selfless doctors, nurses and other paramedical professionals and recognize and honour them.

According the World Health Organization, the Governor said that there should be one doctor for 1,000 people but India has one doctor for every 834 people and this is considered as a great achievement in the medical field of India.

The Governor underlined that the hospitals in India’s metropolitan cities are improving their medical technology in par with the rest of the world through the intervention of Artificial Intelligence in diagnosis and robotics and nanotechnology. He expressed that the quality of treatment is at par with developed countries especially in the treatments for heart disease, IVF treatments and organ transplants and the cost of these treatments in India is less than one-tenth compared to those of developed countries which has resulted in promoting ‘Medical Tourism’. Medical Tourism has increased by almost 200 percent in the last few years.

The Governor said that India now has the world’s largest healthcare scheme, the Ayushman Bharat scheme, under the initiative of our PM Narendra Modiji’. The Governor added that this scheme benefits more than 50 crore Indians. The poor and the lower middle class now have access to affordable quality healthcare.
