Civic bodies hide dengue numbers to escape action 28.6.2017 DNA: India
Dengue figures in Delhi may have been grossly under-reported, shows an analysis done by DNA. Delhi's all three civic bodies have often been accused of under-reporting dengue cases to escape action. Experts say under-reporting of cases derails action plans to fight the menace. The official figure for the last six months is 54, while data of the past three weeks from three hospitals alone puts the number at 50. The number of government hospitals in Delhi is 38. There are about 700 nursing homes as well. The vector-borne disease that becomes a menace every year between April and October is a notifiable disease. All hospitals and nursing homes have to report dengue cases and deaths to the civic body concerned. A scrutiny of week-wise dengue reports compiled by the South Delhi Municipal Corporation shows a sudden halt in cases after Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal and Lieutenant Governor Anil Baijal pulled up officials in April and May. "Cases of dengue and chikungunya are pouring in," said S Chatterjee of the ...

Gujarat will soon offer a matrimonial website for HIV positive people across the country. The website, currently under development by GSNP+ (Gujarat State Network of People living with HIV/AIDS), a community-based organisation formed by HIV positive people in Surat, is being co-designed with the help of a professor from the Indian Institute of Management, Ahmedabad (IIMA). Professor Rajesh Chandwani, also a faculty of Centre for Management of Health Services (CMHS) at IIMA, along with his team of researchers from GeorgiaTech, a leading research university from Atlanta, is helping GSNP+ with technological support and design implications.
