President -South Asia – GE
Dear Mr. Raja,
Trust this finds you doing good.
This mail is regarding the Vscan product that GE is planning to launch in the Indian market .
I have been always appreciative of the latest technology that GE has brought to the Indian market and helped millions across the nation . GE , under your excellent leadership has also set up the PPP models that are a good start for our healthcare system
I have some serious reservations about this product Vscan & that i must share the concerns with your good selves . In fact , i believe that Vscan is an absolutely fantastic product for the rural masses and for physicians in general, if we are able to prevent the misuse of this wonderful piece of portable technology !!
I might be wrong in my assumption, but this is what i wish to share and humbly submit to your company – GE If Vscan can be used for Sex determination in a handy manner by unscrupulous doctors etc. It will adversely impact the use of this technology and go against the interest of the society .
I might be wrong in my assumptions on the capability of this beautiful device, but this is what i fear will happen and since the device is portable , it can be disastrous for the nation and the female births .
If the Vscan can identify the sex as in the case of the sonography machines , please do not launch the product in India
I hope that you will take this email in the right perspective and do the needful in the larger interest of the society as a responsible corporation
With best regards
