The Federation of Indian Chamber of Commerce and Industry, along with department of health and family welfare and the Government of Gujarat, held a colloquium on the healthcare conditions in Gujarat and the measures required to be implemented in the future on Thursday, in the capital city.
As many as 2,000 experts from across different commercial hospitals and private and public institutions, gathered for the seminar.
The suggestions made by the experts are going to form the basis of the policy for the Vibrant Gujarat 2010-11 forum.
"The current scenario of medical care in Gujarat is worrisome", said Vijayalakshmi Joshi, commissioner of health of the government of Gujarat.
She presented an analysis of the medical settings in the state, claiming that resources are restricted in Gujarat at present. There is an immediate need of meeting these demands.
The biggest problem which the state's health industry has been suffering from is the human resource crisis, said the experts.
Jaynarayan Vyas, Minister for health and family welfare, said that in order to cope with the issue, as many as 500 medical seats were added last year. The ministry is planning to add nearly 700 seats in the current year.
