WHO gears up for monsoon in Rohingya refugee camps in Bangladesh 1.6.2018 DNA: Popular News
With the onset of the rainy season, the WHO today said it is strengthening contingency measures along with health partners for the Rohingya refugee camps in Bangladesh to minimise the health impact of the monsoon for nearly 1.3 million people living in Cox's Bazar. WHO Representative to Bangladesh, Bardan Jung Rana said WHO and health sector partners are working with the Bangladesh government to maintain life-saving primary and secondary health services for Rohingya refugees and their host communities in the ongoing rainy season. "Heavy rains, floods and cyclone are expected to further deteriorate the already suboptimal water and sanitation conditions in the overcrowded refugee camps, increasing the risk of infectious disease such as acute watery diarrhoea, cholera, hepatitis, dengue fever and malaria, among others," said Rana. As a preventive measure, a massive cholera vaccination campaign was conducted in May targeting one million people ? the refugees, their host communities and people residing in ...

Anti-malaria drive in Odisha's Ganjam district 31.5.2018 General News
Worried over the rising number of malaria cases, the administration in Odisha's Ganjam district has decided to launch a month-long surveillance drive from tomorrow in the remote areas. The mass-screening drive will be undertaken in 273 villages spread over seven of the 22 blocks of Ganjam, District Malaria Officer R Jagadesh Patnaik said today. The programme will help in "early prognosis and timely treatment" of infected people, he said, adding that the highly endemic blocks were identified by the health department after a thorough research. "Over 40 per cent of the total malaria cases in the district are usually reported from these seven blocks. As many as 2006 people tested positive cases in the first four months of 2018 in Ganjam. Last year the number of cases rose to 10,072," the officer explained The mass screening would be carried out even in residential schools, Patnaik said. "The treatment of the infected persons would start soon after the diagnosis," he added.
