                         Minds United For Health Sciences & Humanity Trust Smt. Vimala Kulkarni Award.


Back ground of this Award:


Women Mental Health is a key issue that is closely related to Health Sciences & Humanity.

OBG Professionals play a crucial role in women mental health and there is a need to enhance efforts. In 2015, with intention to bring OBG & Psychiatry together with focus on women mental health, “Essentials of psychiatry for OBG practitioners” Book was published under Jaypee Medical publishers with contribution of many distinguished seniors across different specialty.


As assured and mentioned in the book that proceedings from royalty of this book will be reserved for work in Women Mental Health, it was decided to institute an annual award for any PG in OBG (DGO-MD-DNB) from India for original research in women mental health.


We are thankful to all contributing Authors to this Book and support they provided for this initiative. 


As this is new initiative & there limited resources we have restricted award to state of Karnataka, however we are continuously working to see if we can extend this to entire country in phased manner as we get more resources.


Thanking one and all.

Dr Sunanda Kulkarni (OBG)
