A look at design for health and wellness 16.7.2018 DNA: Top News
We recently asked the participants of a workshop to identify the one obstinate problem that may hold the key to many of the maternal and child health issues. The majority votes gravitated rather strongly towards anemia. If you are a young Indian woman, experience fatigue, headaches, shallow breath, with a propensity to catch colds and feel low, anemia could be the culprit. Half the women between fifteen and fifty in India are reportedly anemic. The usual remedy that our medical friends recommend is iron tablets or even parental iron, in cases of anemia. On a visit to a Public Health Facility in Chota-Udaipur, the exasperated team there shared instances where they would find these tablets thrown away in the garbage by the adolescent, pregnant and lactating women. A common reason is that women experience nausea and constipation on taking Iron tablets. Efforts are on to persuade and make more girls and women, in the adolescent and reproductive age, take Iron tablets. Yet, can there be other more culturally ...

Spending more time online may put teens at cyberbullying risk 10.7.2018 DNA: Top News
Teenagers who spend over two hours a day on social network sites are more likely to become victims of cyberbullying, a study has found. The study, published in the journal BMC Public Health, examined data from several European countries. Researchers at the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens in Greece found that school children in Romania, Germany and Poland were more likely to experience cyberbullying, such as aggressive and threatening messages, spreading rumours and sharing private, inappropriate or humiliating information, if they used social network sites for more than 2 hours a week day. "This is an important finding which challenges past research suggesting that simply having, rather than excessive use of, a social network site profile increases the risk of becoming a victim of cyberbullying," said Artemis Tsitsika, a professor at University of Athens. The researchers found that a relatively high proportion of school children in Romania (37.3 per cent), Greece (26.8 per cent), Germany ...

PHED rectifies ‘mistake’ after a reality check 9.7.2018 DNA: Money
After being rebuked by the Minister for Social Justice and Empowerment Arun Chaturvedi, the Public Health and Engineering Department (PHED) has now started an attempt to work on its mistake. A new estimate of laying drinking water pipeline for Venkateswara Colony, Sodala has been prepared. PHED will lay pipeline in the whole area of the colony at a cost of Rs 16 lakhs. PHED had laid the pipeline in “U” shape, which services only 25 per cent of the colony’s houses, due to the influence of the RAS officer and special assistant and minister of state Rajkumar Rinwa. The pipeline had been laid outside RAS officer’s house. DNA covered the news in its edition dated June 7 and revealed that PHED has laid a pipeline in the wrong direction to give benefit to the RAS officer. After it was published, local MLA and Social Justice and Empowerment Minister Arun Chaturvedi called the PHED’s engineers and ordered to lay the pipeline in the entire colony. After the minister’s order, PHED Engineers has prepared a new ...
