The Bhopal disaster 30 years

38 views. April 12, 2015.

Of course, I follow the Bhopal catastrophe, also from this distance. My Bhopali family has been so important for me for 20 years now - and it is because of the Bhopal catastrophe I met them. I also used quite a lot of time preparing my thesis for Master of Public Health and my book The Bhopal Saga that was published exactly 10 years ago.

The sterilization catastrophe in Chhattisgarh

72 readers until April 12, 2015.

Translation of a blog in Swedish

I was asked to say something about the catastrophe in the state of Chhattisgarh, India, where at least 13 women died after a doctor with two assistants did 83 sterilization operations in 5 hours. The operation is done by keyhole surgery and resection of the fallopian tubes. The operation itself does not take many minutes, but in Sweden, the staff’s preparations and taking care of the patient after the operation takes a quite long time.

Jag har blivit ombedd att yttra mig om katastrofen i delstaten Chhattisgarh, Indien, där minst 13 kvinnor avlidit efter att en läkare med två assistenter utfört 83 steriliseringsoperationer på 5 timmar. Operationen utförs med titthålskirurgi då äggledarna skärs av. Själva ingreppet för operatören tar inte många minuter, men i Sverige tar både förberedelserna till och omhändertagandet efter operationen av annan personal ganska lång tid.
