WA Indian Docs Launch Network

A new group in WA aims to support doctors of Indian origin in their work and their lives. Its General Secretary Dr Sayanta Jana explains here how it all began.

The establishment of WA Indian Docs Inc is testimony to the diverse and multicultural nature of the Australian society and the health professional groups within Western Australia health sector. WA Indian Docs is an independent semi-professional and social organisation embracing medical and dental practitioners of Indian origin not only from India but from other countries in our region.

In WA, there has not been an organisation that has focused on the semi-professional and social needs of this migrant cohort, which is one of the strong reasons why it was established.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

Launch of WA Indian Docs Inc: An organisation for doctors of Indian heritage

Perth, Australia, February 18, 2017 – WA Indian Docs Inc, an organisation for doctors of Indian heritage to help them realise their Australian dreams whilst maintaining Indian links, was launched at a Gala Ceremony on 18 Feb 2017.

The glittering event was held at Novotel Perth Langley and was attended by more than 225 delegates. Dr Mike Nahan, Treasurer, Government of WA, Mr Roger Cook Shadow Minister for Health, Australian Labour Party, Consul General of India Mr Amit Kumar Mishra, Dr Paul Boyatzis Executive Director, Australian Medical Association of WA, Dr Rosanna Capolingua former Federal AMA President, Dr William Hart, Dean, Curtin Medical School were among the noted dignitaries at the launch. Two charity organisations Children In Need in India – Australia (CINI), and Eastern India Palliative Care (EIPC) were the beneficiaries of the launch.

“15% of doctors across WA are of Indian origin” said Mr Cook and appreciated the contributions made by Indian doctors especially in rural and regional areas of WA.

Dr Mike Nahan paid rich tributes to the doctors of Indian heritage and lauded them for their contribution in keeping Australia healthy. “When the mining boom demanded more health workers, the obvious country with the potential to fill the gap was India” he said. Dr Nahan also predicted that the number of doctors of Indian heritage working in the Australian health work force is only going to increase in future.

Both the political parties pledged their support in promoting the cause of WA Indian Docs.

WA Indian Docs is an organisation founded by a group of doctors of Indian origin and aims to involve, nurture, develop, assist and nourish doctors of Indian heritage from across the globe. Memberships are open for every doctor, dentist, medical and dental student in the community.

Dr Sunny Baruah, the founding president of the organisation, highlighted the need to collaborate and integrate into the Australian system. A cheque of more than $2500 raised for the two chosen charities, Children In Need in India – Australia and Eastern India Palliative Care, were also presented.

“We are heavily involved with national and international charities and would like to continue to support their cause with your support and membership” said Dr. Sayanta Jana, the General Secretary of the newly launched organisation.

Further details for the memberships and their activities can be found at www.indiandoctorswa.org.au
