SADED INVITATION - FOR WHATSAPP

Sustainable Development Goals 2030

Developing Perspective: Understanding National Heritage

sunday invitation

Conversations- Baba Saheb Ambedkar

On 29 July 2018 at India Islamic Cultural Centre, Timing- 10:00 AM to 4.00 PM

Those committed to fundamental transformation are able to perceive principal contradictions of their time and provide a vision for the future. Baba Sahib Ambedkar belonged to a tradition which has been fighting one of the most challenging and obstinate institutionalized system of exclusion, discrimination, exploitation and inherent divisiveness among the marginalized majorities. Through the unique and near perfect operation of caste system Dalits are made invisible and still exploited and discriminated in an absolute sense. But it does not stop only at that, it operates in a manner that it continues to exclude large section of upper castes as well, making the PYRAMID more and more narrow at the top and broad at the base.

With the combined impact of vote raj, struggle for Samajik Azadi, political Azadi from British and India becoming a single modern state based on a written constitution has created a class of people among all the castes and communities who no longer perceive themselves as victims but as comprehensive change leaders on all the national and civilisational issues.

There is strong and pervasive urge among our youth to understand various strands of great debates during our national movement. All our great leaders were not in a polite conversation with each other. They were brutally frank, honest, non-populist and generally authentic while debating on real dilemmas of our traditions and its encounter with modernity and imperial power. We plan to have a series of conversations on our great national heritage. With this background in mind we are starting with Baba Saheb Ambedkar.

Dr. Ajit Jha, an activist –scholar of modern history will cover the following aspects. In four sessions he will make an initial presentation of half an hour, followed by a discussion in Hindi in each of the four sessions.

  1. Influences on Intellectual and ideological framework
  2. Contextualising General principles:

Colonial and Post Independent context and Dalit perspective

  1. Ambedkar:  Political and Social Practice
  2. Ambedkar: Traditions/ Cultures / Religions

 

Date: 29 July 2018

Time: 10.00 AM. to 4.00 PM. with a lunch break

Venue:

India Islamic Cultural Centre, 87-88, Lodhi Road, (Near Lodhi Gardens), New Delhi -3

सतत् विकास लक्ष्य 2030

संकल्प निर्माण हेतु : विरासत में खोज

विमर्श : बाबा साहेब अम्बेडकर

29 जुलाई 2018 रविवार, इंडिया इस्लामिक कल्चरल सेंटर, प्रातः 10:00 से 4.00 बजे 

मौलिक परिवर्तन के लिए प्रतिबद्ध लोग अपने समय के प्रमुख विरोधाभासों को समझने और भविष्य के लिए एक दृष्टि प्रदान करने में सक्षम होते हैं। बाबा साहिब अम्बेडकर उस परंपरा से जुड़े थे जो कि हाशिए वाले बहुसंख्यकों के बहिष्कार, भेदभाव, शोषण और अंतर्निहित विभाजन की सबसे चुनौतीपूर्ण और कठोर संस्थागत प्रणाली के विरुद्ध संघर्ष कर रही थी। जाति व्यवस्था के अदभुत एवं तक़रीबन बाध्यकारी संचालन द्वारा दलितों को अदृश्य बना दिया जाता है और अभी भी पूर्ण अर्थ में उनके साथ शोषण और भेदभाव किया जाता है। लेकिन यह केवल इतने से ही रुकता नहीं है, अपितु यह ऊपरी जातियों के बड़े हिस्से को भी बाहर रखता है, साथ ही यह ऐसा पिरामिड बनाता है जो कि शीर्ष पर और अधिक संकीर्ण होता जाता है और निचले स्तर पर और अधिक विस्तृत होता जाता है

वोट राज के संयुक्त प्रभाव, सामाजिक आजादी के लिए संघर्ष, ब्रिटिश राज से राजनीतिक आजादी तथा लिखित संविधान आद्धृत एकमात्र आधुनिक राज्य बन गए भारत में सभी जातियों और समुदायों के बीच लोगों का एक वर्ग बन गया है जो अब खुद को पीड़ित नहीं समझता अपितु सभी राष्ट्रीय और सभ्यता संबंधी मुद्दों पर स्वयं को सघन  परिवर्तनवादी नेताओं के रूप में समझने लगे हैं।

हमारे राष्ट्रीय आंदोलन के दौरान बड़ी महान बहसों के विभिन्न पहलुओं को समझने के लिए हमारे युवाओं में तीव्र और व्यापक इच्छा है। हमारे सभी महान नेता एक-दूसरे के साथ विनम्र बातचीत नहीं करते थे। वास्तविक दुविधाओं वाली हमारी परम्पराओं और आधुनिकता एवं शाही शक्ति और इसकी मुठभेड़ पर बहस करते हुए क्रूर रूप से स्पष्ट, ईमानदार, गैर-लोकप्रिय और प्रामाणिक रूप अपनाते थे। हम अपनी महान राष्ट्रीय विरासत पर बातचीत की एक श्रृंखला बनाने की योजना बना रहे हैं। इस पृष्ठभूमि को ध्यान में रखते हुए हम इस श्रृंखला की शुरुआत बाबा साहेब अम्बेडकर से कर रहे हैं।

डॉ. अजीत झा, (कार्यकर्ता-नेता आधुनिक इतिहास के विद्वान) निम्नलिखित पहलुओं पर अपनी बात रखेंगे। हमने बातचीत को चार सत्रों में विभाजित किया है। डॉ. झा, आधे घंटे की प्रारंभिक प्रस्तुति देंगे, इसके बाद चार सत्रों में से प्रत्येक में हिंदी में चर्चा होगी।

1. बौद्धिक और वैचारिक ढांचे पर प्रभाव

2. प्रासंगिक सामान्य सिद्धांत: औपनिवेशिक और आजादी के बाद के संदर्भ तथा दलित परिप्रेक्ष्य

3. अम्बेडकर: राजनीतिक और सामाजिक व्यवहार

4. अम्बेडकर: परम्पराएँ / संस्कृतियां / धर्म

तिथि : 29 जुलाई, 2018

समय : प्रातः 10.00 बजे 4.00 बजे तक दोपहर के भोजनावकाश के साथ

स्थान : इंडिया इस्लामिक कल्चरल सेंटर, 87-88, लोधी रोड, (लोधी गार्डन के नजदीक), नई दिल्ली-3

“सतत् विकास के लक्ष्य: आजीविका का अधिकार एवं हमारा असंगठित क्षेत्र”

हरित स्वराज संवाद (सैडेड)

14 जुलाई 2018

meeting 2

 

प्रिय साथी,

हमारे देश ने दुनिया के अन्य देशों की भांति 25 सितम्बर 2015 में विश्व बिरादरी के बीच ‘सतत् विकास के 17 लक्ष्यों‘ को 2030 तक पूरा करने का वायदा,बेहतर शब्द होगा संकल्प किया है। इस संकल्प को किये 3 बरस होने को आये हैं, लेकिन यह दुर्भाग्यपूर्ण विडम्बना है कि पूरी दुनिया की अर्थव्यवस्था उल्टी दिशा में जा रही है। वालमार्ट ने भारतीय बाज़ार पर कब्जा करने का चोर दरवाजा ढूंढ लिया है, जिससे हमारे छोटे व्यापारी, दुकानदार खुद और उनके स्टाफ का एक बड़ा हिस्सा वालमार्ट का सामान ढोने वाले असंगठित क्षेत्र का हिस्सा बन जायेंगे। वेंडरस् एवं पटरी-खोमचे वाले दुकानदारों पर अच्छी खासी मार पड़ेगी ही।

            1977 के योजना आयोग में अर्थशास्त्री सदस्य प्रो. राजकृष्ण अक्सर कहा करते थे कि गरीबी के विरुद्ध सफल अभियान गरीबों के संगठित नेतृत्व के बल पर ही किया जा सकता है।

            आजकल के बौद्धिक और राजनैतिक विमर्श में खास कर उसके शीर्ष पायदानों पर विराजमान बौद्धिकों और नेताओं में गरीबों के बारे में जानकारी, संवेदना एवं उनकी परिस्थिति को बदलने की चर्चा कम ही सुनने में मिलती है। यदि हमें सतत् विकास के लक्ष्यों की ओर बढ़ना है तो असंगठित क्षेत्र के बारे में व्यापक समाज में समझ का विस्तार, गहराई और संवेदना सभी आवश्यक हैं।

            इसी सिलसिले में शनिवार प्रातः10:30 बजे से अप. 1:30 बजे तक कांफ्रेस रुम नं.-2, इंडिया इस्लामिक सैंटर, लोदी गार्डन के पास – एक परिचर्चा का आयोजन किया है:

सतत् विकास के लक्ष्यआजीविका का अधिकार एवं हमारा असंगठित क्षेत्र

वक्ता:

प्रो. रवि श्रीवास्तव – सेवानिवृत्त, जे.एन.यू.: प्रो. श्रीवास्तव – अर्जुन सेनगुप्ता कमेटी के सदस्य थे एवं नागरिक अधिकार आंदोलन और मज़दूर आंदोलन से उनका गहरा रिश्ता है।

श्री अरविंद सिंह – NASVI के संस्थापक एवं देश, दुनिया के मज़दूर आंदोलन एवं राजनैतिक हलकों में इनके काम को सम्मान से देखा जाता है। इन्हें लोकतांत्रिक समाजवादी संस्कार अपने बड़े भाई स्वर्गीय अरुण सिंह से मिले हैं, जो बिहार के समाजवादी युवा आंदोलन के अगुआ कार्यकत्र्ता थे तथा बाद में ट्रेफिंकिंग तथा सांस्कृतिक प्रश्नों पर भी उन्होंने स्वयंसेवी संस्था के ज़रिये महत्वपूर्ण काम किया था।

श्री अलीमुद्दीन अंसारी – समाजवादी मज़दूर आंदोलन के वरिष्ठ कार्यकर्ता एवं खेत मज़दूर पंचायत, हिंद मज़दूर पंचायत नामक स्वतंत्र मज़दूर फेडरेशन के माध्यम से सक्रिय। बिहार के सीमांचल में इनका व्यापक जनाधार है।

अध्यक्षता (tbc):

श्री हरभजन सिंह सिद्धू – अ. भा. महामंत्री हिंद मज़दूर सभा, मजदूर आंदोलन का महत्वपूर्ण नाम हैं।

Vikalp Sangam on Practice of Pluralism in Health Knowledge

12-13th June, 2018

This is an invitation for sharing of alternatives about health related knowledge and practice in the context of medical pluralism. Since the purpose is also to include in this sharing persons engaged in developing alternatives for a health system that is more democratic and people-centred but not actively working on medical pluralism, we thought that the efforts at ‘integration’ of more than one system of knowledge provides a point of dialogue between the two.  The attached concept note clarifies the thinking with which this vikalp sangam is being organised.

 

This gathering is a part of the larger process of Vikalp Sangams (Alternatives Confluences) which are being hosted in various parts of the country. The basic idea of the Vikalp Sangam is to have regional, thematic and at a later stage national, gatherings to bring together initiatives focused on practical alternatives in different fields such as nature and natural resources, energy, education, health, crafts, media, justice, livelihood, market/trade, culture, governance, and so on.

Sharing of efforts at providing alternatives to the dominant knowledge of health and healthcare, especially of those that have attempted to integrate various health knowledges, is the focus of this Vikalp Sangam.  From those practicing any one system other than the ‘conventional modern medicine’, those who are attempting to integrate more than one system of health knowledge and practice, to those who are promoting thinking about the legitimacy of pluralism in health knowledge and thereby characteristics of a health system that optimally incorporates this idea, all are welcome and invited to share their experiences and thoughts, their achievements and challenges. Given the hierarchies among health knowledges and practices prevailing in the present times, an openness and sensitivity to diverse world views and epistemologies will make the dialogue meaningful in taking forward our shared concern for creating systems for improving health of all.

 

The Vikalp Sangam is being organised with support of Kalpavriksh and Tribal Health Initiative (Sittilingi) who will provide for local  stay over the two days. Participants are expected to bear their travel expenses. In case anyone has a constraint in doing so,  as the organisers we will attempt to assist overcome this so that it does not prevent anyone interested in participating from doing so. The routes to reach Sitlingi are given below.

 

We recognise this is short notice, but look forward to your participation in the sharing that will help strengthening of all vikalps attempting improvements in health care. It will also help plan on how to take the process forward. Please confirm your participation at the earliest to facilitate organisation of the logistics and work out a realistic programme.

In solidarity,

Regi George (THI, Sittilingi)

Ritu Priya (Health Swaraaj Group of SADED & JNU)

_____________________

HOW TO REACH SITTILINGI

Airports : Chennai is the most convenient. Bangalore has less connections to Sittilingi , while from Chennai , there are day and night trains which come to nearby railway stations

Travel from Chennai:

Night Trains > The easiest to get tickets is the Salem express which starts from Egmore at 11pm. Get down at Vazhapady – the second stop after Attur [reaches at around 5am] The train stops for only a minute so please dont delay in deboarding – the platform is on the left as you face the direction of the train engine. Walk across to the bus stand. There is a Thiruvannamalai bus which leaves at 6am which parks across the road to the busstand [not in it]. Take a ticket to Sittilingi and ask to be dropped in front of the “Sittilingi hospital”. If the train is late and you miss the Thiruvannamalai bus, get into the V7 bus [inside the bus stand] and get down at Thumbal. At 8am you will connect to the Hosur bus and get down at the hospital. If in case you are coming in the Yercaud express, get down at Salem, take a bus to Vazhapadi and follow the rest of the instructions.

 

Going back > the Salem express leaves Vazhapadi at 9.40 pm and there are connection buses from here. You will reach Egmore at 4.30 am. The Yercaud leaves Salem at 10 pm – you will have to leave earlier from here.

 

If there are a number of people on the same train, we can send our vehicle to collect you.

From Chennai – day trains : The Kovai Express leaves at 6.15am from Chennai Central as also the West Coast Express at 11.15 am. Get down at Morappur. Take a bus to Harur and then onwards to Sittilingi. If there is no bus to Sittilingi at that time – please take a bus to Kotapatty and we can pick you up from there. Please call the office – 9585799061.

 

For those coming by train : The nearest big railway station is Salem and all trains stop there. Please let us know when you reach Salem and we will mail you instructions accordingly. Salem is 85km from Sittilingi and takes about 2 ½ hrs to reach.

 

PLEASE BOOK YOUR TICKETS NOW TO AVOID LAST MINUTE CONFUSIONS.

Invitation to a Dialogue Series 

Towards Sustainable and Empowering Healthcare:

Gandhi’s Vision and its Relevance today 

HEALTH MEETING

A healthcare crisis is being experienced globally. Gandhiji’s experiments with health related issues and his writings on health care have been widely published. Yet they do not seem to inform our understandings of health and health care today. Can they provide more sustainable and empowering ways of working for improving health?

We hope to generate dialogue on this in the coming 150th year of Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi’s birth, starting with Gandhi but not restricted to his work. In this first of the series, we have two economists present to us their study of Gandhi’s vision of health and health care.

Prof. Mark Lindley

Which Parts of Mahatma Gandhi’s Message about Health Care are Useful Today?’

The Politics of Health: Towards Sustainable and Empowering Health Care

A Workshop organised by

Sambhaavnaa Institute together with Health Swaraj Group of SADED

25th-31st March, 2018

Link

Politics-of-Health-2018-1200x661

Background

The Indian enigma is that India’s health indicators are among the worst in the world despite our being one of the biggest democracies and fastest growing economies. Increasing life expectancy seems to mask the poor quality of life and its health consequences. Our children and adults are more malnourished than the populations in Sub-Saharan Africa. We have a triple burden of continuing communicable diseases such as tuberculosis, malaria and pneumonia, increasing non-communicable diseases such as heart disease, cancers and environmental pollution related problems, as well as increasing injuries due to traffic accidents, social violence and suicides. And access to affordable health care is becoming more difficult. Obviously, Indian development and health policies are not in sync with health conditions of the majority. Even though health and health care are concerns of each individual, we do not seem to give them due public policy attention, either in the overall planning processes for the country or in development of health services.

In the present times, people are facing three crises related to health. One is of changing disease patterns due to rapidly changing environmental, economic, social and cultural conditions for which preventive and therapeutic measures have still to be understood and applied. The second is of the difficulties faced in availing of affordable, safe and dependable health care. The third is the dominant perspective of health knowledge and services that have led to a medicalization and commodification of health, with loss of the capacity for ‘listening to one’s body’ and being involved in decisions related to one’s own health. Thereby, the domain of health and health care have become tools of dis-empowerment at individual, community and societal levels. Government policies have led to building up of a large health services infrastructure in the country, and also contributed to creation of the crises people are facing.

Several government, academic, civil society and social movement initiatives have attempted to address these concerns. These include the Primary Health Care approach adopted internationally as part of the WHO-UNICEF’s Alma-Ata declaration in 1978 and the building of public services since the 1940s in India. In recent decades, there has been the attempt to strengthening of public services through the National Rural Health Mission, the current international approaches of Universal Health Coverage and Sustainable Development Goals, campaigns such as for the Right to Food and Right to Health.

About the Workshop:

In this program, we will examine the public policy and non-government initiatives that have attempted to work towards bottom-up, pro-people and pro-poor health care systems. They will be explored for their approach and achievements against the backdrop of the dominant political economy of healthcare. To understand what the present situation of health care is and how it can be improved from a pro-people perspective we will examine the following questions:

  • What all aspects affecting health are included in ‘health care’?
  • What affects people’s access to appropriate and quality health care?
  • What is ‘quality’ in health care?
  • What is ‘medicalisation’ and ‘commodification’ of health?
  • What decision-making about their health can lay people do, and what is ‘empowering’ or ‘disempowering’ for them in the context of health care?
  • What are the implications of these processes for designing health systems?

In order to answer these questions, we will use available data on health and the experience of attempts to improve health care. While discussing issues informed by global experience, it will focus on the Indian context.

Methodology:  Group Work, Interactive sessions, Presentations, Film screenings and lectures will be used to develop an understanding of the various dimensions of the politics of health. The options available for future development will be the purpose of the course. Sessions will be structured to:

  • Explore reasons for inequalities in health status and health care as the ‘Politics of Access’
  • Understand pluralism in health knowledge as the ‘Politics of Knowledge’, and the processes of decision-making for health as the ‘Politics of Governance’, with delineation of the linkages between the three.
  • Move towards a collective re-conceptualization of what can be the future directions for a people-centered approach to health and healthcare.
  • Examine these issues and develop an understanding of what can be done for designing health services that are sustainable and empowering.

Who is this workshop for:  Health activists, journalists dealing with health issues, early and mid-career health care providers (doctors, nurses, paramedics) or anyone interested in people oriented health and health care; anyone interested in contributing to developing a better understanding of how to empower people to deal with health problems and creating social conditions that support the same.

Workshop Facilitators:  The resource persons include:

  • Madhulika Banerjee (Professor, Department of Political Science, Delhi University)
  • Rakhal Gaitonde (Umea University, Sweden),
  • V. Sujatha (Professor, Centre for the Study of Social Systems, JNU),
  • Ritu Priya (Health Swaraaj workgroup of South Asian Dialogues on Ecological Democracy (SADED) and Professor at the Centre of Social Medicine and Community Health, JNU),

and others from the academic, civil society and movement spheres.

Language: The workshop will be conducted bilingually (English/Hindi)

Dates: 25th March 10:00 AM to 31st March 5:00 PM 2018.

Venue:  Sambhaavnaa Institute, Palampur, Himachal Pradesh

पोप का सन्देश और धर्म का मर्म : एक चर्चा

Link


अपने देश में कई धर्म के लोग एक साथ रहते ही हैं आज यातायात और संवाद के माध्यमों ने दूर देश के लोगों के बीच जानकारी और यात्रा की दूरी भी कम कर दी है | इसके बावजूद करीबी, आत्मीय और सदाशयतापूर्ण बातचीत कम होती जा रही है| धर्म जो एक गंभीर क्षेत्र है, जिसके अन्तर्गत अनेक विषय सम्मिलित हो जाते हैं, उन पर तो ऐसे संवाद की बहुत जरुरत है |

सैडेड से जुडे लोगों ने ऐसी चर्चा की आवश्यकता महसूस की और सोचा कि विभिन्न धर्मों-सम्प्रदाय के लोगों से संवाद किया जाए | इस प्रकार की बातचीत ‘धर्म जिज्ञासु मंच’ नाम से कई वर्षों से जारी है | उज्जैन के पिछले कुम्भ के दौरान और बाद में भी प्रयास जारी रहा |

साल 2015 में परम पावन पोप ने ईश्वर प्रशंसा में एक सन्देश दुनिया को दिया, जिसमें उन्होंने वैश्विक परिप्रेक्ष में मनुष्य, प्रकृति तथा समाज के अंतर्संबंधों तथा कई तात्विक बातों पर नए ढंग से प्रकाश डाला है |

हमने उस सन्देश से भी सारांश निकाले और अन्य धार्मिक-सामाजिक क्षेत्र के तात्विक मुद्दों को चिन्हित करने का प्रयास किया है, जिससे आगे बात जारी रखी जाए | हम उसे आपके समक्ष रखना चाहते हैं | साथ ही इस विमर्श में आपके योगदान की आशा भी रखते हैं |

इस उद्देश्य से एक बैठक नीचे दिए अनुसार रखी गयी है | दिनाँक 29.12.2017 को आयोजित की गयी है |

निम्न कार्यक्रमानुसार आप सादर आमंत्रित हैं |

इस उन्नीस दिसम्बर को अनुपम मिश्र को हमसे बिछड़े एक पूरा बरस हो जाएगाउनका अंतिम एकल व्याख्यान 4 जनवरी 2016 को ‘जीवन का अर्थअर्थमय जीवन‘ हुआ थाहालांकि यह व्याख्यान  हरित स्वराज संवाद (सैडेड) के मंच से हुआ था लेकिन यह पूरे समाज को संबोधित करते हुए दिया गया थाअनुपम जी की भाषा और चिंतन किसी भी विचारधारा या संस्था के घेरे में बंधी नहीं होती थीइसी वजह से यह व्याख्यान आज भी प्रतिष्ठित राजनैतिकसामाजिक एवम् साहित्यिक पत्र-पत्रिकाओं में छप रहा है|

अनुपम जी की पैनी दृष्टि समाज और समय के अंतर्संबंधों को परत दर परत सामान्य जन के लिए उजागर करती जाती थी| इसी कारण विभिन्न पृष्ठभूमि के लोग उनकी अंतिम यात्रा में शामिल हुएसंचार माध्यमों ने उन पर अनेकों अनेक लेख छापे व टी.वी. चैनलों ने विशेष स्थान दियाउनके जाने के तत्काल बाद दिल्ली में ही तीन बड़ी सार्वजनिक सभाएं हुईंलेकिन फिर भी बहुतों के मन में टीस रह गई कि हमें कुछ कह्ना था|

इस टीस की सृजनात्मक भूमिका है कि यह हमारे समय और अनुपम जी के बारे में हमें सोचने-खोजने को मजबूर करती है| आइयेखुले दिलोदिमाग से इस सोच को 16-17 दिसम्बर 2017 को गाँधी शांति प्रतिष्ठान में मिलकर साझा करेंमित्रों से अनौपचारिक चर्चा द्वारा बना कार्यक्रम निम्नलिखित है:

Venue:  CSDS, 29, Rajpur Road,  Delhi -110054

Dear Friends,

Greetings  from SADED!

SADED has been observing Himalaya Diwas since 2010 on 9th September every year. The initiative was started under the guidance of many prominent social and environmental activists as wells scholars of the Himalayan region including Shri Sundarlal Bahuguna, Smt. Radha Behn Bhatt, Dr. Anil Joshi, and Prof. Jayanta Bandyopadhyay.

The initiative started by SADED and many other organizations and activists to observe 9th September as Himalaya Day got massive support from the people, and as a result the Uttarakhand Government officially proclaimed 9th September as Himalaya Diwas on 9.9.2014 to spread the message of conservation of the Himalayan ecosystems and declared that from 2015, the day would be celebrated by the State Government.

This year we are going to observe Himalaya Diwas in Delhi with a special lecture followed by discussion.  This event is being co-organized by SADED, PAIRVI, and Bharat Jan Vigyan Jathha

We look forward to your joining us on this occasion.

Kindly confirm your participation by phone/ whatsApp or email.

INVITATION POLICY MEETING ON LOCAL HEALTH TRADITION

August 23, 2017

‘Importance of Nepal-India People to People Relations’

August 23, 2017,  time: 10.00 a.m.

Venue: Conf. Room No.2, Main Bldg.,India International Centre (IIC), Lodhi Road. Organised by Solidarity Centre for South Asian Democracies

2017 is an unusually significant year in global affairs, but it is more so in Nepal-India ties. Lately, two neighbours have made efforts to make high level state visits more regular. However, there are many issues that have been creating misunderstandings at the citizens’ level of two countries. Major foundations of Nepal-India ties i.e. open border between two countries, 1950 treaty which provides equal national treatment to citizens of both the countries, etc. have been questioned by the people in both the countries due to the various reasons more because of ideological motivations than due to a nuanced understanding of the ground realities. Sometimes natural calamities including flood become issues of uninformed debate in popular media. Also, new initiatives i.e. China proposed one Belt one Road Initiative (BRI), India initiated Bay of Bengal Initiative for Multi-Sectoral Technical and Economic Cooperation (BIMSTEC), etc. have made people further confused about the traditional relationship between Nepal and India.

Given the background we wish to organise a round-table on “Importance of People-to-People Relations” at IIC, Delhi on the 23rd of August 2017. Official visit of the PM of Nepal Honourable Sher Bahadur Deuba also begins on 23 August 2017. The objective of the event is to have better understanding about the contemporary situation of Nepal-India relations and future direction, the discussants will be politicians, civil society members, academia and media persons from both the countries.

The Politics of Health: Towards Sustainable and Empowering Health Care

A Workshop organised by Sambhavanaa Institute and Health Swaraaj Group of SADED

Background:

The Indian Enigma is that India’s health indicators are among the worst in the world despite our being one of the biggest democracies and fastest growing economies. Increasing life expectancy seem to mask the poor quality of life and its health consequences. Our children and adults are more malnourished than the populations in Sub-Saharan Africa. We have a triple burden of continuing communicable diseases such as tuberculosis, malaria and pneumonia, increasing non-communicable diseases such as heart disease, cancers and environmental pollution related problems, as well as increasing injuries due to traffic accidents, social violence and suicides. And access to affordable health care is becoming more difficult. Obviously, Indian development and health policies are not in sync with health conditions of the majority. Even though health and health care are concerns of each individual, we do not seem to give them due public policy attention, either in the overall planning processes for the country or in development of health services.

In the present times, people are facing three crises related to health. One is of changing disease patterns due to rapidly changing environmental, economic, social and cultural conditions for which preventive and therapeutic measures have still to be understood and applied. The second is of the difficulties faced in availing of affordable, safe and dependable health care. The third is the dominant perspective of health knowledge and services that have led to a medicalization and commodification of health, with loss of the capacity for ‘listening to one’s body’ and being involved in decisions related to one’s own health. Thereby, the domain of health and health care have become tools of dis-empowerment at individual, community and societal levels. Government policies have led to building up of a large health services infrastructure in the country, and also contributed to creation of the crises people are facing.

Several government, academic, civil society and social movement initiatives have attempted to address these concerns. These include the Primary Health Care approach adopted internationally as part of the WHO-UNICEF’s Alma-Ata declaration in 1978 and the building of public services since the 1940s in India. In recent decades, there has been the attempt to strengthening of public services through the National Rural Health Mission, the current international approaches of Universal Health Coverage and Sustainable Development Goals, campaigns such as for the Right to Food and Right to Health.

About the Workshop:

In this program, we will examine the public policy and non-government initiatives that have attempted to work towards bottom-up, pro-people and pro-poor health care systems. They will be explored for their approach and achievements against the backdrop of the dominant political economy of healthcare. To understand what the present situation of health care is and how it can be improved from a pro-people perspective we will examine the following questions:

What all aspects affecting health are included in ‘health care’?
What affects people’s access to appropriate and quality health care?
What is ‘quality’ in health care?
What is ‘medicalisation’ and ‘commodification’ of health?
What decision-making about their health can lay people do, and what is ‘empowering’ or ‘disempowering’ for them in the context of health care?
What are the implications of these processes for designing health systems?
In order to answer these questions, we will use available data on health and the experience of attempts to improve health care. While discussing issues informed by global experience, it will focus on the Indian context.

Methodology:

Group Work, Interactive sessions, Presentations, Film screenings and lectures will be used to develop an understanding of the various dimensions of the politics of health and the options available for future development, will be the purpose of the course. Sessions will be structured to:

Explore reasons for inequalities in health status and health care as the ‘politics of access’
Understand pluralism in health knowledge as the ‘politics of knowledge’, and the processes of decision-making for health as the ‘politics of governance’, with delineation of the linkages between the three.
Move towards a collective re-conceptualization of what can be the future directions for a people-centered approach to health and healthcare.
Examine these issues and develop an understanding of what can be done for designing health services that are sustainable and empowering.

Who is this workshop for: Health activists, journalists dealing with health issues, early and mid-career health care providers (doctors, nurses, paramedics) or anyone interested in people oriented health policy issues, to contribute to developing a better understanding of how to empower people to deal with health problems and creating social conditions that support the same.
