Telangana far from 'real AIIMS'

Vishwas News

Hyderabad, June 7:The month of April turned out to be quite a significant one for health and medical education with the Centre giving its nod to set-up All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) in Telangana.
After over three-years of consistent lobbying, the AIIMS project finally materialised and brought cheer to the sector. While AIIMS like institute was 'long time coming', the fact, however, remains that the State is very far from having a fully operational AIIMS.
Public health experts and those tracking development of AIIMS like institutions in India point out that none of the 'new-age' AIIMS that were recently given green signal have managed to get fully operational.
There is a huge question mark over standard of healthcare services being offered by newly established AIIMS, which have not managed to achieve the status of 'Centre of Excellence' as with the original AIIMS in New Delhi.
According to figures available with Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, over 60 per cent of faculty positions and nearly 80 per cent of the non-faculty positions have remained vacant in the six AIIMS that recently came up in Bhopal, Bhubaneswar, Jodhpur, Patna, Raipur, and Rishikesh.
hese new AIIMS were proposed under Pradhan Mantri Swastha Suraksha Yojana (PMSSY) in 2003 and completed in 2012 but went operational in 2014. The infrastructure work related to these new AIIMS including blood banks, trauma care centres etc are complete but they have been hit by issues of required manpower to provide the services not being there.
"Even by conservative estimates, It's going to take more than half a decade for AIIMS in Telangana to actually become operational. The existing new AIIMS have failed to attract talented teaching staff and clinicians, which will be a big issue here too," senior doctors here said.
Public health experts have acknowledged it as a major challenge. "There are lots of issues that are impacting newly established AIIMS in India. It's partly political also because all political parties want to announce big institutions but do not follow up with funding, infrastructure, resources support leading to low quality level of institutions," said Dr Anant Bhan, Researcher, Bioethics & Global Health & Adjunct Professor, Yenepoya (Deemed to be University).
Experts said such new health institutions do had the name tag of AIIMS but there quality standards, both on clinical and non-clinical sides, were often below the standards of State level medical colleges.
