World Medical Association and Dr. Ketan Desai – Practice of “Unethics”: Reports Outlook Magazine

In the upcoming (February 16, 2015) issue of the popular magazine “Outlook”, a critical analysis on how the World Medical Association (WMA) has been systematically influenced by disgraced ex-Medical Council of India (MCI) president, Ketan Desai, and his cronies who are now occupying top positions in MCI as well as Indian Medical Association (IMA) will appear (see the Outlook report available online below). As noted in the Outlook article, Desai is not only aided by the top officials in MCI/IMA, he also enjoys support from all political parties (with the sole exception of AAP). While the last health minister under the Congress government, Mr. Gulam Nabi Azad, was well known to be a close ally of Desai, the new health minister under BJP government, Mr. J.P. Nadda, publicly appeared with Desai at a medical conference in Ahmedabad last December despite an appeal made by PBT urging Mr. Nadda not to appear in the conference with Desai because it would send the wrong signal for the people of India. PBT has also written to the present WMA president and a doctor from France, Xavier Deau, with all evidence of corruption by Desai and his cronies and urging him to remove Desai from the post of WMA president-elect for 2016. But Dr. Deau has opted absolute silence to PBT’s repeated appeals against Desai. As the Outlook report says, although WMA claims that their goal is to achieve “high standard of medical ethics” across the world, it seems that they practice only to promote “unethics” and the most unethical and corrupt medical man from India.
