For the health work­ers, it is not very easy to re­solve the chal­lenges, but it will be an op­por­tu­nity to solve some of the chal­lenges through uni­ver­sal hu­man value ed­u­ca­tion and prac­tices.

The Kh­e­sar Gyalpo Univer­sity of Med­i­cal Sciences of Bhutan or­ga­nized three days work­shop on Hu­man Value work­shop from 4th-6th Au­gust in the cap­i­tal.

This work­shop was or­ga­nized with the main aim to de­velop com­pe­tent and re­spon­si­ble pro­fes­sion­als with hu­man val­ues and to en­sure bet­ter un­der­stand­ing of co-ex­is­tence and har­mony in the so­ci­ety and work­place. The work­shop was con­ducted by the re­source per­sons from In­dia who has been prac­tic­ing in hu­man val­ues for al­most half a cen­tury.

While science and tech­nol­ogy has en­abled tremen­dous ad­vance- ments and in­no­va­tions, ques­tion still re­mains of whether we are sat­is­fied and happy with the state of af­fairs in this mod­ern world.

The Pres­i­dent of the Univer­sity, Dr. K. P Tsh­er­ing said that as a coun­try, we as­pire to have Gross Na­tional Hap­pi­ness, as an in­di­vid­ual, we as­pire to have con­tin­u­ous pros­per­ity and hap­pi­ness but what are the value which are use­ful to achieve this hap­pi­ness, how can we ex­ist in har­mony with our self, fam­ily, so­ci­ety and the na­ture are the ques­tions which will face day to day life.

He added that in this ori­en­ta­tion and work­shop on uni­ver­sal hu­man value ed­u­ca­tion the univer­sity have in­tro­duced par­tic­i­pants to ex­plore and find an­swer for the ques­tion.

The work­shop en­ables the par­tic­i­pant to de­vel­oped holis­tic ap­proach within them­selves and fam­ily.

Hu­man value is very rel­e­vant to med­i­cal pro­fes­sion who deal with the hu­man life and peo­ple deal­ing with the hu­man life should be proud on prin­ci­ple on uni­ver­sal hu­man value, he added.

But he also pointed out that the health pro­fes­sions are also fac­ing chal­lenges that he said that, the chal­lenges faced by the health pro­fes­sional are lack of pro­fes­sional, not ideal work­ing con­di­tion and poor com­mu­ni­ca­tion.

“These chal­lenges are not easy to solve, but I see an op­por­tu­nity to solve some of the chal­lenges through uni­ver­sal hu­man value ed­u­ca­tion and prac­tices” said the Pres­i­dent.

We at the univer­sity, we en­deavor to pro­mote good and care with hu­man value and will strive to im­part skills and com­pe­tence with the right at­ti­tude, he added.

This train­ing had ben­e­fited our health staff and other and will bet­ter pro­fes­sion on uni­ver­sal hu­man value and un­der­stand­ing. To­wards this course of pro­duc­ing re­spon­si­ble and sen­si­tive health worker rounded in the fun­da­men­tal prin­ci­ples of hu­man value to en­sure bet­ter un­der­stand­ing of co-ex­is­tent and har­mony at all the level at all fac­ulty and to move from dis­ci­pline to self dis­ci­pline. The univer­sity has es­tab­lished the uni­ver­sal hu­man value and GNH cell.

Through this cell, the univer­sity will cre­ate and en­abling en­vi­ron­ment within the univer­sity fra­ter­nity to pro­mote uni­ver­sal hu­man value.

At the level of so­ci­ety in­creas­ing com­mu­nal con­flict, ex­ploita­tion and strife, ter­ror­ism and vi­o­lence in var­i­ous forms, as well as in­creas­ing cor­rup­tion and other un­eth­i­cal prac­tices are ram­pant ev­ery­where.

Ac­cord­ing to the re­lease from the univer­sity, it states that the over­all ed­u­ca­tion should en­able a hu­man be­ing to live a ful­fill­ing life that is in har­mony with one­self and with the fam­ily, so­ci­ety and the na­ture around us. Now the ques­tion is, is our ed­u­ca­tion sys­tem based on these ob­jec­tives?

The ba­sic pur­pose of the ori­en­ta­tion work­shop on Uni­ver­sal Hu­man Value was to in­tro­duce the par­tic­i­pants to self ex­plo­ration and to en­able them to holis­tic de­vel­op­ment ap­proach within them­selves, their fam­ily and the so­ci­ety.

Mean­while, the open­ing ses­sion of the work­shop was graced by the Heath Min­is­ter Tandin Wangchuk and the work­shop was at­tended by doc­tors, fac­ul­ties and of­fi­cials from Kh­e­sar Gyalpo Univer­sity and other or­ga­ni­za­tions. The ob­jec­tive of this three day work­shop is to ini­ti­ate the process of self ex­plo­ration and self in­ves­ti­ga­tion within one­self about the un­der­stand­ing of hap­pi­ness.
