[Correspondence] Addressing underlying causes of violence against doctors in India

The Lancet has helped bring global attention to the problem of violence against doctors in China through its Editorials in 2012 (May 12, p 1764)1 and 2014 (March 22, p 1013),2 and has stimulated local discussion on potential solutions. India’s health system faces a similar crisis and the magnitude of the Indian problem is, perhaps, greater. More than 2000 junior doctors from 17 government-run hospitals in India’s largest city, Mumbai, went on strike for 4 days in March, 2017, to protest a recent spate of violence against doctors.
