Havoc of quacks (Jhola-chaap doctors)

Quacks are the serious risk for community health. They use with substandard medication, heavy doses of steroids and antibiotics even to children, just to name a few. Now question arise whose responsibility is tackling the quacks; health department or police? Do we have sufficient provision in our legal system deal with the quackery?

this is very serious problems facing the Indian citizen across the country especislly in rural areas, and we need strong measures to curbed this menace. Not only quacks but even those  doctors with MBBS degrees are not an exception to the problems.

Yes there are examples of many such mishaps even death of patients, i know atleast two such incidents within my Block.

i think awareness of general public and specially of rural populace is must.

NGOs should take initiative for this.
