Doctors reject proposal to make validation of medical degrees more flexible – Health

The unions that group all the doctors in the country sent this Wednesday a letter to President Iván Duque in which strongly reject the possibility of making time and procedures more flexible for the validation of medical degrees and their specialties obtained abroad.

In a document that would be the draft decree, known by this newspaper, it is indicated that this measure seeks to establish “the legal exercise of the profession of titles in general medicine, specialists, subspecialists in medical and surgical specialties, masters and doctorates concerning the health area, titles of nurses, physiotherapists, who completed and completed their studies abroad ”.

The foregoing in order to prevent and control the spread of covid-19 in the territory and mitigate its effects “In the face of a possible collapse of the institutions providing health services that today are the main line to face the sanitary emergency ”.

Likewise, the draft decree, which has not been made official, proposes to temporarily grant extraordinary functions to the governors of each department so that, through the departmental health institutes, issue the corresponding administrative acts authorizing the legal exercise of the profession of the titles of health professionals in accordance with the guidelines of the Ministry of Health.

However, in the response letter signed by representatives of nine unions, the “great concern for the possibility that the national government is raised any flexibility of the times and procedures required for validation titles of general practitioner and first or second medical specialties that come from abroad; indistinctly”.

Doctors warn that more than a shortage of professionals in this field what exists an inequitable distribution of the same in the different regions, conditioned by limitations for the exercise and problems in the contracting on the part of the different actors of the system.

The proposals

In another part of the letter, the health unions propose to Duque seven alternatives to face the crisis caused by the coronavirus pandemic from the health level.

Starting from the basis that “in Colombia there is no deficit of health professionals”, some of them are graduating from the first of April to about 2,500 doctors who have already completed their careers in medical schools; hiring those who have already graduated but are waiting to complete their rural year or have not found a job; and formally link resident physicians.

“General practitioners and some other specialties could be given the possibility of exercising at this juncture by license or transitory permit, which would end at the end of the crisis and then, these professionals graduated abroad, thus temporarily validated, would initiate their corresponding regulatory procedures, ”is another proposal.

50 former European ministers and leaders speak out against Trump’s plan for Palestine | International

Fifty European personalities – foreign ministers, former prime ministers or former leaders of the European Commission, the UN or NATO – sign a public letter (full text), reproduced this Thursday by THE COUNTRY, in which they ask the EU to reject Donald Trump’s Middle East plan on the grounds that he would subject Palestinians to a “apartheidLike the South African.

The plan, they denounce, allows the annexation by Israel of occupied territory and renders a Palestinian state unfeasible. The signatories include the Spanish Javier Solana and Trinidad Jiménez, the French Jacques Delors and Hubert Védrine, the British Jack Straw and Chris Patten, the Italian Massimo d’Alema or the Irish Mary Robinson.

The United Nations, the European Union, the Arab League and forums such as the Organization of Islamic Cooperation have spoken out against President Trump’s peace plan, considering that it breaks with a decades-long international consensus on the two-state solution to the conflict. between Arabs and Palestinians.

As the letter of the 50 former European foreign ministers and former European leaders highlights, “it has characteristics similar to apartheid”For the segregation that entails between two peoples. The old glories of European diplomacy that subscribe to the letter face up to the designs of the advisers who have drawn up the White House peace plan with international law.

The initiative favors the Israeli occupation to be perpetuated while limiting itself to promise a better life for the Palestinians without guaranteeing them a state of their own. Figures who have directed the European Union’s foreign policy in recent decades, such as Javier Solana, not only express their concern about a project that may exacerbate the central conflict in the Middle East, but also demand that the current European political leadership take steps to reject the Trump plan and counter the threat of annexation of Palestinian territories.

As skilled seasoned real estate attorneys in the Manhattan solar market, the architects of the White House plan have been quick to measure and delimit the estates at issue. Since last Monday, a team of draftsmen has mapped the West Bank to determine which parcels of occupied Palestinian territory – 30% of the surface – could be absorbed by the Jewish State.

Trump’s initiative, Peace for Prosperity, assumes the aspirations of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who hopes to leave as a legacy of his decade in power new negotiating parameters favorable to Israel’s interests.

The plan foresees no more concessions than the eventual handover of portions of desert territory in exchange for seizing settlements in the West Bank (more than 400,000 settlers) and the strategic Jordan Valley, a natural border towards moderate Sunni Arab countries.

Palestinians are required to renounce Jerusalem – its largest identity emblem, embodied on the Al-Aqsa Temple Mount – and to dream of a viable state on the west bank of the Jordan, as well as to the return of the Diaspora of five millions of refugees inherited from the birth of Israel in 1948.

In counterpart to the mutilation of their hopes, the “deal of the century”, as the US president himself usually defines it, promises them a flood of 50,000 million dollars (46,000 million euros) in international investments. “Trump has limited himself to copying and pasting the Israeli plans,” veteran Palestinian negotiator Saeb Erekat defined the US proposal.

Israel seeks to tolerate a demilitarized entity under guardianship. Only in the non-annexed areas of the West Bank will a pseudo State of Palestine emerge for 2.5 million inhabitants without effective control over its borders and where “the transit of people and goods is supervised by Israel.”

Palestinian freedom of movement comes at the expense of creating a network of “separate pathways for each population and imaginative infrastructure solutions such as tunnels and overpasses.

The asymmetry of the peace plan has its maximum expression in Jerusalem. Trump now declares it “indivisible”, blocking the way for the Palestinian demand to establish the capital of his State in the eastern part of the Holy City.
