    25 panchayats to get Ayurveda clinics - The Hindu
    Updated: February 19, 2014 19:49 IST


    Chief Minister Oommen Chandy said here on Wednesday that every panchayat in Kerala would soon have a government Ayurveda treatment facility, achieving total health coverage under the Ayurveda system of medicine in the State.

    Talking to the media after a meeting of the Cabinet, the Chief Minister said that the Cabinet had sanctioned Ayurveda dispensaries to 25 panchayats without a dispensary. This would leave only five panchayats without an Ayurveda dispensary under the Department of Ayurveda or the National Rural Health Mission.

    Mr. Chandy said that the general provident fund scheme would be made applicable to government employees coming under the contributory pension scheme introduced with effect from April last year.

    A sum of Rs. 50 crore would be made available for rubber procurement by a consortium of cooperative banks. The handling charge payable to procurement agencies would be increased from Rs. 4 a kg to Rs. 6 a kg. Rubber was being procured at Rs. 2 above the market price.

    The Cabinet, he said, approved a Rs. 31-crore project of the Meat Products of India to set up a modern abattoir and meat processing unit at Edappal. It also approved proposal to start an Institute of Climate Studies at Kottayam under the Department of Environment. It also approved creation of 167 posts for Regional Cancer Centre here.

    Replying to questions, the Chief Minister said that he would examine the criticisms made by A. E. Muthunayagam, who resigned as chairman of State Level Environment Impact Assessment Authority. The allegation that members of the Authority were not qualified would also be looked into. The Authority had met and cleared 17 applications for quarrying, when the chairman’s post was vacant, as delay in disposing pending applications would have resulted in many more getting automatic clearance.

    He said that the government was willing for discussions with those agitating against the Aranmula airport project if they wanted. He denied that there was disunity in the UDF over this and other issues.


    its a good step to promote Ayurveda system of medicine

    But anyone who can afford medical treatment would probably go to a medical cliinic instead of these ayurvedic cliinic..
    And given Kerala's development the no. of people going in Ayurvedic cliinic will be very less

    No Shortage of Vaccine

    There is no shortage of Inactivated Polio Vaccine (IPV) in National Immunization Program.Under the programme the vaccine is provided by Government of India to States/UTs and the vaccination is carried out by service delivery outlets consisting mainly of Government hospital, Block Primary Health Centres, Primary Health Centres, Sub Centres, outreach session sites in the villages etc. There is a global shortage of IPV. However, this reduced supply to government at present has not resulted in shortage of IPV to the State/UTs.

    As per provisional reports received from States/UTs, in current financial year from Apr-Oct, 2017 a total of 537.37 lakh doses of IPV have been supplied to the States/UTs which is more than total children vaccinated in the same period i.e. 140.95 lakh. This indicates that there is no shortage of IPV. (The State/UT-wise details are given below).

    In view of the above, the question of children remaining unimmunized against type 2 polio virus due to shortage of IPV does not arise.

    Following steps are being taken to check the shortage of IPV:

    · States/UTs are provided IPV vaccine on a monthly basis based on monthly performance report.

    · Multi dose IPV vaccine vial once open is reused for subsequent sessions as per the laid down guideline to minimize the vaccine wastage without compromising on the safety aspect of the programme.

    Ministry of Health and Family Welfare (MoHFW) has supported public sector manufacturer for technology transfer of IPVs based on the Sabin strains from WHO.

    The Minister of State (Health and Family Welfare), ShAshwini Kumar Choubey stated this in a written reply in the LokSabha here today.

    Snake Antivenom

    The Central Government provides assistance to the States for strengthening of health infrastructure under the National Health Mission. This facilitates treatment for various diseases and emergencies including snake bites. Health being a State subject, the Ministry has asked the States to procure anti-snake venom serum under National Health Mission after reflecting the same in their annual PIP for approvals.

    Rabies is transmitted to the humans following bite of animals (dogs, cats, monkeys, mongoose etc.) infected by rabies virus. For prevention of deaths due to Rabies, Government of India is implementing the National Rabies Control Programme in the country. The objectives of the program are to:

    · Prevent human deaths due to rabies

    · Prevent transmission of rabies virus in dog population

    · Mass vaccination of dogs.

    · Dog population management

    · Strengthening surveillance & response.


    To prevent deaths due to human rabies, the strategy adopted is to implement more cost effective Intra Dermal (ID) route of inoculation for anti-rabies vaccines for Category II & Category III bites and infiltration of Rabies immunoglobulin in all Cat III bites in all major anti-rabies clinics of government health facilities.


    The States are asked to organize training of health professional on animal bite management and ID route of anti-rabies vaccination, IEC activities for community awareness on dos’ and don’ts in the event of animal bite, strengthening surveillance of human rabies and strengthening lab diagnostics for rabies.

    As per reports received from the States, details of State wise deaths due to snake bite and rabies, during the last three years in the country are given below respectively.

    Instead working to get more and more quality medical schools and research centres in our country and increasing the number of medical seats in each state, we are instead focusing on other alternative treatment methods. We are actually encouraging people to go and seek treatment from such facilities which provide treatments that have no scientific backing or proof of actualy working. This is simply madness especially at a time when we have such a dearth of quality doctors , surgeons and specialists in our country. As far as health care is concerned this government needs to do way more than its doing now.

    Cabinet approves setting up of new AIIMS in Bilaspur


    The Union Cabinet chaired by Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi has given its approval for establishment of new AIIMS in Bilaspur (Himachal Pradesh) under the Pradhan Mantri Swasthya Suraksha Yojana (PMSSY). The cost of the project is Rs.1351 crore.

    Salient features:

    • The new AIIMS will be completed in a period of 48 months with a pre-construction phase of 12 months, construction phase of 30 months and stabilization / commissioning phase of 6 months.
    • The Institution will consist of a hospital with a capacity of 750 beds and trauma center facilities.
    • It will have a Medical college with an intake of 100 MBBS students per year.
    • Nursing college with an intake of 60 B.Sc. (Nursing) students per year.
    • Residential complexes and allied facilities / services, broadly on the pattern of AIIMS, New Delhi.
    • The hospital will have 20 Speciality/Super-Speciality Departments including 15 Operation Theatres.
    • It will also have an AYUSH department with 30 beds for providing treatment facilities in traditional system of medicine.
    Impact:

    The establishment of new AIIMS will serve the dual purpose of providing super speciality health care to the population while also help create a large pool of doctors and other health workers in this region that can be available for primary and secondary level institutions / facilities being created under National Health Mission (NHM).

    Background:

    Under this scheme, AIIMS have been established in Bhubaneshwar, Bhopal, Raipur, Jodhpur, Rishikesh and Patna while work of AIIMS Rae Bareli is in progress. Also, three AIIMS in Nagpur (Maharashtra), Kalyani (West Bengal) and Mangalagiri in Guntur (Andhra Pradesh) have been sanctioned in 2015, two AIIMS have been sanctioned at Bathinda and Gorakhpur in 2016 and an AIIMS in Kamrup (Assam).
