Diabetes is like Article 15, doesn’t discriminate among people, says former CJI Ramana

Must read

A diabetes expo with an aim to provide innovative care to all was organised in Hyderabad on Sunday. Justice NV Ramana, the former Chief Justice of India, was the chief guest at the event.
Following the inauguration of the expo, Ramanna said, “In many ways diabetes is similar to Article 15 of the Indian Constitution. Article 15 prohibits discrimination on the basis of religion, race, caste, sex, place of birth or any of them. Likewise, diabetes doesn’t discriminate on the basis of a person’s physical appearance or financial status. It may occur to rich and the poor alike. It is shocking to know that 8% of youth, especially above the age of 18 are suffering from this disease; apart from the patient’s health, it affects the family financially. It also decreases the productivity of the patient; Hence it is important to educate the public about the effect of diabetes and it is also essential to understand how to prevent the disease. Screening tests must be conducted at all levels and educate the masses regarding prevention of diabetese.”
It is to be noted that the Article 15 prohibits discrimination against people on the basis of  religion, race, caste, sex, place of birth or any of them.  No citizen shall, on grounds only of religion, race, caste, sex, place of birth or any of them, be subject to any disability, liability, restriction or condition with regard to access to shops, public restaurants, hotels and places of public entertainment; or the use of wells, tanks, bathing ghats, roads and places of public resort maintained wholly or partly out of State funds or dedicated to the use of the general public.
The day-long expo was organised at the JRC convention and Trade Fairs and was conducted by Dr Mohan’s Diabetes Specialities Centre.
