Introduction

The COVID 19 pandemic has stimulated a debate about individual rights versus the rights of society to protect itself in extraordinary circumstances. This debate is anchored in such fundamental subject as medical ethics, medical professionalism and human rights and public health. As the elephants battle on balancing the rights of the individual versus that of society it is often the rights of vulnerable populations that get trampled.
We are planning to bring you up to speed on topics related to COVID such as TB, HIV and Diabetes, Ethical implications in a resource limited environment, Post traumatic Stress Disorder and Mental Resilience, managing backache, utilisation of Cannabis products for pain relief, and many more relevant subjects to enhance your clinical skills and knowledge.
