Celebrate Solutions: The Tamil Nadu Health Systems Project, India

Reposted with permission.Tamil Nadu lies in the southernmost part of the Indian Peninsula. The state faces major challenges in improving and increasing access to health care services, but they are making significant strides. The Government of Tamil Nadu developed a Health Policy in 2003 with a focus on the health of low-income communities and families. The Tamil Nadu Health Systems Project supports this strategy through several interventions, especially those aimed at reducing infant and maternal mortality. The World Bank recently provided more funds, in addition to the original financing in 2004, to further improve health services quality and access while supporting state-wide management systems implementation.The Project has utilized several innovative and effective measures (PDF). To increase access to necessary maternal and neonatal health services, 80 comprehensive emergency obstetrics and neonatal centers have been established and strengthened, leading to improved quality of care for women and infants. This care includes health education, nutritional support, and HIV/AIDS testing and counseling. In addition, 385 ambulances have been provided under the project, managed under a public private partnership, increasing emergency transport services in rural areas. These public private partnerships have also provided mobile out-reach health services as well as other services.The Project also launched a pilot program that includes ensuring women’s reproductive health through cervical cancer screenings. The pilot program has had great success with 84% of women in the target age group of 30 – 60 years being screened in the Theni and Thanjavur districts and the scheme could be extended to the whole of Tamil Nadu.To ensure that women’s and infants’ health visits are recorded, an electronic health management system was established and is now operational in 38 secondary level hospitals, with plans to extend to all 270, and to 18 medical colleges. These electronic records prove invaluable in maintaining and monitoring a woman’s and her infants’ health throughout the continuum of care.From these interventions and more, Tamil Nadu has seen improvements in both maternal and infant health. Infant mortality has decreased by 35%. The state’s maternal mortality ratio has decreased 50% from 167 deaths per 100,000 live births in 1999 to 111 in 2006, while India’s MMR in 2008 was 230. While this is exciting progress, it is still 25 times higher than in developed countries. But with further improvements to quality of care and strengthened comprehensive emergency obstetric and neonatal care, Tamil Nadu is on the right track.Share this:last_img read more

‘Modi ‘promoted’ firms of ‘capitalist friends’ at expense of BSNL, MTNL’

first_imgNew Delhi: The Congress on Thursday alleged that Prime Minister Narendra Modi ‘promoted’ firms of his ‘capitalist friends’ at the expense of state-owned BSNL and MTNL. Attacking government over a media report that claimed that in order to better the financial condition of BSNL and get it back on track, its board has approved several proposals, including voluntary retirement for 54,000 employees, Congress’s chief spokesperson Randeep Surjewala said, “Whose telecom companies are BSNL and MTNL– of the country’s 130 crore people. Government-owned BSNL and MTNL have been destroyed. Both companies are in debt.” “Modi ji has promoted the firms of his capitalist friends. BSNL and MTNL are now on the verge of closure,” the Congress leader said.

It was also reported that the BSNL board has approved suggestions to reduce retirement age from the existing 60 years to 58 years, voluntary retirement scheme and fast-tracking allocation of 4G spectrums to BSNL. Meanwhile, the BSNL has denied any such development. In an official release, the public telecom service provider said the so-called proposals pertaining to reduction in the retirement age of BSNL employees and retrenchment of a large number of employees are not true.last_img read more

Shah holds massive road show in Tumkur on last day of campaining

first_imgBengaluru: BJP President Amit Shah Tuesday held a massive road show in Tumkur, where his party nominee is pitted against JDS supremo and former prime minister H D Deve Gowda, as the town was swathed in Saffron. Ahead of the road show, Shah visited Siddaganga mutt, a prominent Lingayat seminary in Karnataka, and paid respects at the “Gadduge” (the final resting place) of its highly revered seer Shivakumara Swami, who passed away at the age of 111-year, in January this year. Also Read – India gets first tranche of Swiss bank a/c details Thousands of enthusiastic BJP workers cheered Shah chanting “Modi, Modi” as his “Rath”, a modified campaign vehicle, traversed through the streets of Tumkur in the around 40-minute road show. Shah canvassed votes for BJP candidate G S Basavaraj on the last day of the electioneering in the constituency, which is going for polls on Thursday along with 13 other seats in the first of the two-phase elections in the state. The remaining 14 Lok Sabha seats in Karnataka will have polling on April 23. Also Read – Tourists to be allowed in J&K from Thursday A large number of people gathered all along the route and showered flower petals on Shah as the “rath” wound its way in a delirious atmosphere. Ahead of the “rath”, BJP supporters sporting saffron caps and holding cutouts, placards and party flags danced to drum beats, as slogans of ‘Modi Modi’ rent the air. Accompanying Shah among others were senior leader and MLA V Sonamma, BJP national general secretary and Karnataka in charge P Muralidhar Rao. Deve Gowda is the joint candidate of ruling Congress-JDS coalition in the constituency. He has chosen to contest from Tumkur at the last minute, after vacating Hassan, his home tuft, to grandson Prajwal Revanna. Congress had ceded Tumkur seat to JD(S) as per the seat sharing arrangement, denying ticket to sitting MP Muddahanumegowda, causing resentment within. The fight in Tumkur is also seen as battle between Lingayats and Vokkaligas – the two dominant communities in Karnataka — to which both Basavaraj and Gowda belong to respectively. Basavaraj had represented Tumkur in Lok Sabha in the past- thrice as a Congress nominee and once from BJP. He was defeated by Congress Muddahanumegowda in 2014 polls. For Deve Gowda it is his first electoral battle from Tumkur, which has eight assembly segments. Four of them are held by BJP, three by JD(S) and one by Congress. A total of 15 candidates are in the fray in the seat.last_img read more

Dhoni ”might” play the next game, says Raina

first_imgHyderabad: Stand-in-skipper Suresh Raina said captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni “might” play the next game after missing Chennai Super Kings’s six-wicket defeat by Sunrisers Hyderabad in the IPL here. Dhoni was ruled out of the match with back spasm, paving the way for Raina to shoulder captaincy responsibility. “His back was stiff. He is feeling better and might play the next game,” Raina said at the post-match presentation ceremony. For a team that has won seven of their nine matches this season, the defeat was a wake-up call, Raina said.

We lost too many wickets in between and that’s why it cost us the game. “We should have looked for partnerships and should have rotated our strike better. Hence, we were 30 runs short,” Raina said.

Sometimes we have been a bit hesitant, against Kings (XI Punjab) the wicket was quite tough. Me and Jonny (Bairstow) have been mixing and matching quite well. “I have two beautiful children, one more on the way, and a beautiful wife and I can’t thank them enough. I have fantastic support from over the world and it has been overwhelming here in India,” Warner said. Sunrisers Hyderbad captain Kane Williamson applauded the team for its efforts. “Very good performance all around. CSK started well with the bat but the way we performed in the back half was outstanding and the chase was superb. I don’t think the wicket changed too much,” he said. “Rashid (Khan, who claimed 2/17) has been an outstanding performer for a number of years. He was brilliant today. Warner was brilliant. A match-winning knock with Jonny (61 not out),” Williamson added.last_img read more
