Healthcare is essential to society and is needed by all, many times in everyone's lifetime. Being a Doctor is a noble profession where one treats a patient with full compassion and a sense of responsibility, but alongside being a doctor they have their own shortages. Each country has a healthcare shortcoming, especially in my country, India, which is a poverty-stricken one, doctors suffer a lot.
Here, there is a shortage of supplies for young doctors, a lack of propaganda because of which exploitation among doctors is common, and a lack of skilled training in teaching institutions, and hospitals, establishing a Medical college is becoming a business for big businessmen, celebrities, and politicians, especially in our country as the reservation on the basis of caste, origin, and the socioeconomic condition is increasing so much that a general-category student howsoever brilliant finds it difficult to fetch a seat in government-run colleges. This is not just the case in a country like India, there are healthcare problems worldwide, in every country. where due to poverty or lack of resources there brilliant students go to different developed countries and further pursue their careers there leaving their own country deficient and consuming opportunities of the developed countrymen. In the present, there have been many institutions come up that are dedicated to training doctors but these institutions lack teachers and are often expensive to study for the middle class because of which many deserving candidates can not pursue their dream. Doctors are sometimes even treated violently by the patients for failing to save their life which really contradicts the idea of humanity. In the times of coronavirus, we could see doctors working relentlessly to fight the disease and treat the patients with an increased risk to them and their families and long working hours inside uncomfortable PPE kits alongside low-salaried employment.
To fight all of these problems there can be a number of measures taken to prevent doctor's exploitation. The first task of all should be of providing quality education to doctors at affordable cost and widely in every country irrespective of its status. Doctors should have fixed working hours and a good salary and proper technology given to doctors for better working conditions. Doctors should be treated like equal human beings, we should understand they make mistakes sometimes a patient can't be saved, and it's totally wrong to blame it all on them. There is a serious need to stop doctors' exploitation and start respecting their noble profession by understanding their importance of them in our healthy life. This is the only way to make this profession truly sustainable.
