The day pays tribute to the world of medical profession and highlights the value of doctors in our life.

The day was first established by the Central Government in 1991. Dr Roy was honoured with India's highest civilian award Bharat Ratna on February 4, 1961.

This year Doctors’ day becomes even more important in raising awareness about the contribution of doctors to society because of the slew of violence meted out to them across the nation.

Keeping this in mind, the theme for National Doctor's Day 2019 is “Zero tolerance to violence against doctors and clinical establishment”. The week of July 1 to Jul 8, 2019, will also be celebrated as ‘Safe Fraternity Week’.
