A message to our friends in India

07 May 2021

As India experiences the trauma of soaring infection rates, illness and death, the College sends our love and deepest sympathy to our fellow obstetricians and gynaecologists, midwives, nurses, and their families. Australia and New Zealand doctors share a strong and special bond with our colleagues in India. Your dedication and commitment to your patients exemplifies all that is good about our profession. There are many Indian doctors and midwives working in Australia and New Zealand and their contribution to healthcare in our two countries is significant and valued. I am a proud Indian Australian and witnessing the terrible suffering in my country of origin breaks my heart.
To those of you who have lost loved ones, who anxiously await news of family and friends, who endure the tyranny of distance and separation, we stand alongside you, always here for support and comfort. To the medical community, and the people of India, we are your brothers and sisters in Australia and New Zealand. Know that you are constantly in our thoughts. Our commitment to your welfare is genuine and deep, now, and into the future.
