    Traditional doctors demand fair recruitment by Public Health Min

    BANGKOK, 8 October 2018 (NNT) – Thailand's Prime Minister has been asked to consider adjusting the recruitment quota of the Ministry of Public Health for Thai traditional doctors to tackle the country’s shortage of personnel in the field of traditional medicine.

    At the Government Contact Center 1111, about 80 members of a traditional medical practitioners’ network gathered to submit a petition to Prime Minister Gen Prayut Chan-o-cha, calling on him to ensure fairness in the Public Health Ministry’s recruitment of Thai traditional doctors into the civil service. The demand followed a recent resolution of the Personnel Administration Group of the Office of the Permanent Secretary for Public Health to exempt traditional doctors from the ministry’s annual recruitment quota.

    The group claimed that such a decision contradicted the Personnel Administration Group’s report in 2017, which indicated there was a shortage of as many as 1,531 traditional doctors.

    In order to ensure fairness for people in all professions and to address the shortage of traditional doctors in the country, the petitioners asked that the Prime Minister order the Office of the Permanent Secretary for Public Health to reallocate its recruitment quota for traditional doctors.

    Exempt or exclude?
    So, traditional medicine "doctors" have thus far been employed by the government? Without poopooing traditional medicine, what scientifically proven health procedures (such as anti-bacterial sanitation and sterilisation of instruments) are these people educated in, and mandated to follow? What pharmacological knowledge do they have to ensure no conflicts of prescriptions with modern medicine? There's numerous questions as to why the government should employ them.
    They may be ok and an option for people to choose, but if the government is going to employ them, the public needs confidence that they're not charlatans and also have more than just basic knowledge of health safety.

    Tell you what, when you get cancer, go and see a fucking Thai "traditional medicine doctor" and see how far your prescription of a gecko shit and lavender poultice gets you, you dumb shit.

    These fucking snake oil salesmen are a danger to public health.

    As are homeopaths and other quacks.

    Lets take one example. Medicinal cannabis has been pretty much accepted by science. Traditional Thai medicine has been using marijuana for centuries.
    That one thing alone does not mean much of what traditional healers do is not a sham or a placebo, but similarly, that traditional methods can't cure cancer does not mean the entire craft is a sham.
    Not very logical there brightspark.
