This day is celebrated every year to spread awareness about the importance and health benefits of yoga. This year’s theme is, "Yoga for Humanity". The day began with the recitation of Gayatri Mantra followed by Lighting of the Holy lamp by the distinguished dignitaries Dr. BS Garg, Secretary Kasturba Health Society, Dr. NM Gangane, Dean, MGIMS and Dr. O P Gupta, former Emeritus Professor of Medicine.

The program commenced with Yogic Sukshmavyayam (subtle movements of joints). It was followed by Suryanamaskar & asanas on sitting, standing & lying down posture such as Vajrasana, Mandukasana, Vakrasana, Gomukasana, Paschimottanasana, Tadasana, Trikonasana, Vrikshasana, Padahastasana,      Sethubandhasana The Yog guru leading the entire session ensured to impart the beneficial effects of each of the Asanas concurrently with the demonstration of the same. The regime further continued with Pranayama (breathing technique) and ended with Shanti prayer.

Here is the link of the program.

Without any further ado, Dr. NM Gangane was called upon to deliver his address on the occasion by the co-ordinator of the event, Dr. Prashanth A from the department of Physiology. Dean emphasized on the theme of this year and urged the attendees to foster the spree of Yoga even in the future.

On a similar note, Dr. Garg stated that our campus has a facility available to anyone who wishes to profit from this ancient indigenous art. Following this, the dignitaries presented Shri Ashish Gujar, the Yog guru, a souvenir and a floral bouquet as a token of gratitude from the students of the I MBBS Batch 2021.

Towards the end, as a representation from the first year students who had attended a 12 day long yogic regime, Ms. Anoushka and Ms. Akshaya shared their profound experiences. It was astonishing to note that Anoushka’s ankle twist got managed and relieved her of the nagging pain. Similarly, Akshaya observed tremendous improvisation in her aerobic capacity which she epitomized by recitation of “OMKAR”.

On 27th May, 2022, National Midwifery Training Institute (NMTI) was inaugrated at Kasturba Health Society’s Kasturba Nursing College, Sevagram. This training institute is the first institute started in India, supported by the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, Government of India. The training institute is technically supported by other development partners, Jhpiego, Bill and Melinda Gate Foundation. Trainees will receive class room teaching and training in the skill laboratory at Kasturba Nursing College, and Clinical training in the Maternal and Child Health Department, Kasturba Hospital, MGIMS, Sevagram.

Dr S Sikdar (Advisor, Maternal Health Division, MOHFW, GOI), Dr Archana Patil (Director of Health Services, Govt of Maharashtra), Dr Padmini Kashyap (Deputy Commissioner, Maternal Health, GOI), Shri PL Tapadia (Vice President, Kasturba Health Society), Dr BS Garg (Secretary, Kasturba Health Society), Dr N Gangane (Dean, MGIMS), Dr. CM.

In accordance with the Midwifery services guidelines in 2018 , the Government of India has identified Kasturba Health Society’s Kasturba Nursing College as one of the National Midwifery Nursing Institute (NMTI) to roll out midwifery services in the country. “Maternal healthcare has always been our priority. Our institute is piloting the midwifery initiative for the Government of India and Jhpiego and Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation are the developmental partners under this initiative. The Government of India has proposed an alternative model of service provision for strengthening the reproductive, maternal and newborn services by nurse practitioners in midwifery through Midwifery-led care units (MLCUs). Soon the Midwifery-led unit and the Obstetricians-led unit shall work in harmony to provide holistic women-centric care for women and newborns”, said Dr BS Garg in his welcome address.

“MGIMS has shown an exemplary commitment in improving the maternal and child health in India. This institute is uniquely positioned to establish professional midwifery through imparting high-quality education to this new cadre. There could not be a better place than MGIMS to unroll the midwifery initiative in the country”, informed Dr S Sikdar (Advisor, Maternal Health Division, MOHFW, GOI). “With the strengthening of the midwifery care in India, we aim to reduce the maternal mortality and provide quality, compassionate and respectful maternity care to the women of the country”, Dr Sikdar added. “India has seen a decline in maternal mortality and Infant mortality ratio”, informed Dr Padmini Kashyap (Deputy Commissioner, Maternal Health, GOI).

“The government has hired and on boarded International Midwifery Educators (IMEs) from various countries, to train and educate midwives in India to global standards as laid out by the International Confederation of Midwives (ICM). The IMEs will work closely with a national faculty of midwife educators to teach and train state midwifery educators through an intense 6-month rigorous residential training program. Beyond this period, they will closely mentor and support the newly trained cadre as they train future midwives—nurse practitioners in midwifery (NPM) for a 1-year period. The training with the support of the Obstetrics & Gynecology Department of MGIMS shall train 30 nurse practitioners in midwifery starting 1st June 2022”, informed Dr Poonam Shivkumar (Head of Obstetrics & Gynecology, MGIMS).

 “Kasturba Nursing College and the clinical site at MGIMS are an excellent choice for the National Midwifery Nursing Institute. The state- of the – art Maternal and child health wing, LaQshya certified labor room, our dedicated faculty and nurses provide an excellent environment for Midwifery training. Building a strong midwifery cadre shall reduce over-medicalization and strengthen healthcare resources,” said Shri PL Tapadiya (Vice President, Kasturba Health Society) in his Presidential address.

“Maharashtra witnesses around 1200 maternal deaths every year and 80% of the deaths occur during the time of birth. 87% of the deliveries can be assisted by the Midwifery-led care. With good quality of training of midwives, we aim to reduce maternal deaths, pre-term births, Caesar sections and provide a more compassionate birthing journey for women and their babies”, informed Dr Archana Patil (Additional Director of Health Services, Govt of Maharashtra).

Mr Somesh (Country Director Jhpiego), Dr Medha Gandhi (Representative, Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation) and Ms Catherine (International Midwifery Educator) also shared their views on this occasion.

Mrs Ancy Ramesh (Principal, Kasturba Nursing College) proposed the vote of thanks. The program ended with the National Anthem.

Graduation Ceremony of Class of 2016 held

On the 23rd of April 2022, the Mahatma Gandhi Institute of Medical Sciences (MGIMS) held its annual graduation ceremony, celebrating the accomplishments of 100 graduating students of the class of 2016. 

Shri Dhirubhai Mehta (President, Kasturba Health Society) and the Chief guest of the ceremony, Mr PL Tapadiya (Vice President, Kasturba Health Society), Dr BS Garg (Secretary, Kasturba Health Society respectively), Dr N Gangane (Dean, MGIMS), Dr. Satish Kumar (Officer- In- Charge Students’ Council), faculty, staff, students, and family assembled in the auditorium of the institute to award the degree certificates to the MGIMS class of 2016.

In his welcome address, Dean Dr Gangane congratulated the graduating batch. He commended the class of 2016 for being exceptionally socially responsible and for their effort in going beyond their call of duty during covid waves. “You are the ambassadors of MGIMS. Endeavor to stay firm to the values you have learned at this institute”, Dr Gangane reminded the students.

Shri Dhirubhai Mehta and Shri PL Tapadiya awarded the degree certificates to the new doctors and congratulated them the best in their future endeavors. The atmosphere was charged with emotions and excitement as the students donned the graduation regalia walked up to the stage and collected their degrees and certificates.

Speaking on the occasion, Shri Dhirubhai Mehta vouched that the MGIMS graduates are sensitive to the felt needs of the community. “MGIMS is synonymous with honesty, austerity, ethical and selfless services and I am proud to say that out of nearly 500 medical schools in our country, MGIMS is one of the only three institutes to be identified for this set of values.” Shri Mehta recalled the President of India’s remark when he acknowledged MGIMS’s effort in serving the community. He also brought to everybody’s attention the government of India’s report to parliament that has stated - ‘MGIMS is conscious of the fact that medical education needs to maintain the right balance in the eternal triangle of ‘quality, quantity, and equity. In its perennial quest to attain the perfect blend, it never forgets that these three arms are not in conflict, and equity cannot be kept in abeyance’.

Shri PL Tapadiya in his address called MGIMS a launching point for kick-starting the medical journey for students of 2016 batch. He acknowledged the effort of management, faculty and the institute’s clinical materials in shaping a holistic learning environment for students. “I am confident that you all shall abide by the values inculcated in you during your graduating years and honor them as you tread ahead in your journey”, said Shri Tapadiya.

The class of 2016 swore to the Hippocratic Oath attributed to the ancient Greek physician Hippocrates before their peers, family, friends, and mentors. Dr. Satish Kumar administered them the famous oath. “The oath is a strong reminder that the doctors must serve mankind unconditionally and teach the secrets of medicine to the next generation”, reminded Dr Satish Kumar.

Dr Utkarsha and Dr Sahil, graduating students from the 2016 batch reflected on their journeys with MGIMS. “MGIMS has taught me to look at a patient and see a person in him, and to make every effort to bring the best in care to him”, said Dr Utkarsha. Dr Sahil reminisced his first day of Social Service Camp and said that he felt honored to be a part of the institute that equipped him with the necessary set of skills required to be a good doctor.

The program ended with a vote of thanks and national anthem.

Kasturba Health Society observes the Swachhata Pakhwada

Kasturba Health Society’s Mahatma Gandhi Institute of Medical Sciences, Kasturba Hospital, Kasturba Nursing College and Kasturba Nursing School carried out a fortnight-long ‘Swachhata Pakhwada’ (cleanliness drive) in their premises from 1 April - 15 April 2022.  Around 70 peripheral villages covered under the institute’s field practice area also participated in the Swachhata pakhwada. Faculty, Staff, medical students, nursing students and members of Village Health Nutrition and Sanitation Committee (VHNSC), Asha workers, Anganwadi workers, Women’s Self Help Group members, Kiran clinic committee members and Kishori Panchayat members participated in the Swachhata Abhiyaan with an objective of disseminating the message of Swachh Bharat widely.

CGHS Director Dr Nikhilesh Chandra visited MGIMS to assess how MGIMS is using this campaign to keep its premises clean. During his two-day visit, Dr Chandra inspected the entire hospital, spoke to patients and took cognizance of the outcome of the government’s initiative of swachhata abhiyaan. He was impressed with the upkeep of the hospital and commended the institute’s effort in establishing the features like paperless HIS, Library, Pharmacy, MCH and Cancer department among several other attributes.

Several activities like Swachhata Pledge, cleanliness of surrounding, swachhata awareness campaign at community level (hand washing demonstration and health talks on personal hygiene, safe water, sanitation, anti-tobacco and anti-spitting), distribution of masks and cloth bags, sensitization workshop on bio-medical waste management, training of staff for infection control, disposal of waste, celebration of WHO day (7th April 2022), beautification of premises and gardens, poster exhibition, essay and poster competition, role play on Swachhata for sensitizing visitors at Kasturba hospital and Swachhata rally were organized as a part of the pakhwada. Display of Swachhata messages and banners were also done on digital screens all across the hospital premises.

Swachhata Pakhwada is an initiative taken by the Govt of India with the objective of bringing a fortnight of intense focus on the issues and practices of Swachhata by engaging the Ministries/Departments and the institutes falling under them. The Ministries observing Swachhata Pakhwada are monitored closely using online monitoring system where action plans, images, videos related to Swachhata activities are uploaded and shared on daily basis.  At the end of the pakhwada, the Ministries introduce awards to the institutions based on their contribution and participation in the drive. 

“At the behest of the Government of India, our institute is participating in Clean India Mission with commitment and devotion.  We take immense effort to ensure that our institutes and premises remain clean throughout the year. Close to a thousand people – staff, community and patients combined – have been a part of this massive campaign. We thank everyone involved for making this campaign a grand success”, said Dr BS Garg (Secretary, Kasturba Health Society)

“Kasturba Hospital shall always contribute its part in creating a cleaner and greener India. Our hospital is among the first in the country to go paperless while registering patients, ordering tests, retrieving test results, and generating electronic discharge summaries”, said Dr SP Kalantri, Medical Superintendent, Kasturba Hospital.
