MBBS Curriculum Updated After 22 Years, but Barely Mentions Disability


1
New Delhi: After 22 years, medical students in India have an updated curriculum that is due to roll out in August 2019.India produces around 90,000 doctors every year, with 63,250 undergraduate medical seats, and 34,950 post graduate medical seats.
But the new curriculum skates over the issue of disability and disability rights.This comes in spite of the 2016 legislation on the Rights of Persons with Disability Act, which says that curriculum in universities, colleges and schools should include information on the rights of people with disabilities.
