In his memory, the Indian Medical Association (IMA) had also instituted B.C. Roy National Award to recognize eminent people in the field of medicine.
National Doctors’ Day is celebrated every year on 1st July throughout India to acknowledge and appreciate medical practitioners and health care workers for their selfless contribution to society.
The day helps us understand the importance of doctors in our lives and value them, to offer them our respects by commemorating one of their greatest representatives.
Doctors have always played a pivotal role in society but for the last two years, when the world was grappling with COVID-19, people have appreciated the roles of doctors and other healthcare professionals, who stood at the forefront day and night in the fight against the pandemic.
Hundreds of doctors across the world put their own lives in danger, putting their safety and that of their families second to that of the general public.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi also appreciated their heroic efforts during the pandemic and paid homage to those who laid down their lives in the service of humanity.
