6th Fast Unto Death of Prof. Dr Govinda KC Continues



Share this on:

A senior professor at the Institute of Medicine (IoM), Dr  Govinda KC is on fast-unto-death from 24th August to pressure the government to fulfill his eight-point demands, which includes full implementation of Mathema committee report and past accords that mostly calls for measures to reform medical education in the country.

He has demanded that the cabinet endorse Mathema committee report and start forming policy to implement its recommendations.

A high level task force led by educationist Kedar Bhakta Mathema had submitted its report on national policy on Health Profession Education (HPE) on June 29. But the government made the document public only on August 4 in view of the growing public indignation fueled largely by Dr KC's warning of staging a hunger strike.
