A STUDY OF THE MORBIDITY PROFILE, PERSONAL HYGIENE AND NUTRITIONAL STATUS OF SCHOOL CHILDREN IN RURAL AREAS OF DISTRICT GHAZIABAD IN UTTAR PRADESH

ABSTRACT: BACKGROUND: As part of the rural outreach programme and school health programme of Santosh Hospital, medical examination of school children, studying in Government Primary and Middle Schools of the nine villages where the outreach programme was in progress, was carried out. AIMS AND OBJECTIVES: The aim of this study was to find out the morbidity profile, nutritional status and level of personal hygiene of the school children. MATERIAL AND METHODS: A team of doctors examined all the students of the concerned schools on a fixed date. Health status was assessed by detailed clinical history and thorough check-up by resident doctors in Ophthalmology, ENT, Pediatrics and Dentistry. Level of personal hygiene was assessed by checking the cleanliness of clothes, hair, nails, face and freedom from any skin infections. Nutritional status was assessed by calculating Body Mass Index (BMI) and the weight status was then classified according to WHO BMI for AGE classification. The study was conducted between 04 August 2014 to 21 November 2014 and a total of 421 students were examined. RESULTS: Maximum (41.33%) children were found to have dental caries, followed by anemia in 11.64% students. Fever and upper respiratory tract infections were found in 9.5% children and defective vision in 3.09% students. Complaints of pain abdomen was given by 2.38% children and 2.85% of them gave history of worm infestation. A number of students were found to be suffering from skin infections like pyoderma (4.99%), scabies (3.09%) and fungal infections (2.61%). CONCLUSIONS: The government health department should regularly carry out school health check-up as well as health education sessions to educate the children, parents as well as school teachers on various preventive measures including improvement in nutritional status and personal hygiene.

The following primary sources were used to survey the LTCFs: the Federal Public Ministry, the State Health Department of Minas Gerais, the Municipal Health Department and the Municipal Public Ministry of Belo Horizonte, as this municipal region has the largest number of facilities. Secondary sources such as booklets, websites and social networks were also used. In this manner, 231 LTCFs were identified and, after the sources were cross-referenced, the existence of 170 LTCFs in the MRBH was confirmed. It should be emphasized that LTCFs without records or operating permits were not included in this study. The difference between the 231 LTCFs identified and the 170 facilities confirmed is therefore due to the existence of duplicate data or the closure of the activities of some facilities.

Clinical governance; How been understood, what is needed? Nurses' perspective

Clinical governance; How been understood, what is needed? Nurses' perspective

practitioners were unsure about the concept of CG and its activities (24). Murray study has shown that NHS staff had not has a uniform level of knowledge about CG (25). Also Currie mentioned that frontline clinical staffs in NHS required raising awareness in CG concept (15). Staff education and training was employed as a fundamental step toward CG development in Tabrizi study (26). Greenfield said that divergence in CG is referred to reflect the understandings about it (27). Also its successful implementation, in longer term, is required to changing the paradigm for health professionals (28). Lack of clarity about CG concept in hospitals, would be consequent the continuous confusion and resistance from clinicians and nurses (29-31). However, all quality improvement initiatives to be successful needs to board on some infrastructures. Jeffery studies results have showed that organizational infrastructures and financial support were significantly affect the quality improvement initiatives at hospital-level. They concluded that if the hospitals intent to successfully implement quality improvement activities, they must attend to the context in which the efforts will be placed (32). In addition, senior primary care managers of NHS considered cultural change as an important enabler to CG implementation (33). The same results was obtained in Saadati study about accreditation implementation in Iranian hospitals (34). However, Campbell had identified three major CG barriers including structural barriers, resource barriers (lack of staff or money) and cultural barriers (blame culture) (35). Nurses in our study have mentioned that cultural change, staff education and performance assessment could be as a three enablers to effective CG implementation. Also they regard that with a lack in staff and inadequate financial support, CG implementation would not be successful.

Corporate social responsibility and access to policy elites: an analysis of tobacco industry documents.

Corporate social responsibility and access to policy elites: an analysis of tobacco industry documents.

In the event, the DTI’s investigation resulted in no further action being taken against BAT. The circumstances leading up to the decision was the subject of an investigation by the Guardian newspaper in 2004 [67]. Evidence of BAT’s alleged complicity in smuggling had initially been presented to the House of Commons Health Committee inquiry whose report specifically called on the DTI to investigate BAT [64]. Given the serious and complex nature of the allegations the DTI was reported to be considering an inquiry under section 432 of the Companies Act 1985 [67], which gives DTI inspectors wide-ranging powers to seize files, summon witnesses, question them under oath, and require them to give every assistance in connection with the investigation. Further, inspectors’ reports under section 432 are published. This threatened to raise BAT’s risk to litigation from overseas governments who had lost revenue and encountered difficulties in enforcing public health standards as a result of tobacco smuggling. According to the sequence of events reported by the Guardian BAT tried to persuade the DTI against a section 432 inquiry. Martin Broughton, the company’s chief executive, wrote to Stephen Byers (then Secretary of State for the DTI) twice, asking for an audience, but was rebuffed on both occasions. However, as a member of the multinational chairman’s group, a lobbying group com- posed of leading executives of multinational companies, Broughton was able to press his case directly to the prime minister during a private breakfast at Number Ten. Following the meeting, Byers was summoned to breakfast with the Prime Minister where he was pressured into granting Broughton a formal audience. As The Guardian reported at the time, this was despite the fact that the ‘‘company stood accused of colluding in cigarette smuggling on an unprecedented scale’’ [67] and despite the fact that ASH, the antismoking group, had been refused a similar meeting.

Women express concern about how to support their families, particularly in cases where they have lost their husbands or they were separated due to displacement or the need to travel to find a job or to try to recover some of their belongings. An important change is linked to the suspension of the grouping of women in the past, which allowed women to work in the fields next to each other to increase the cultivated area, pool resources and support each other through a structured and organized group. Men regret that in the current situation they cannot fulfil their role as providers and ensure good living conditions for their families. They are worried about the future for themselves and their relatives. Young boys express despair about their own prospects. They regret having lost both their inheritance and the possibility to start or continue their education or any business. Young girls complain about the vulnerable position they have in their families with little autonomy and being exposed to aggressions. They fear of being married at a very early age, and to have to discontinue their education (in cases where they are still attending) while being married off. People with severe mental health conditions are killed during confrontations, reflecting their particular vulnerable position during violent episodes (Croix-Rouge Française, 2016).

Enabling dynamic partnerships through joint degrees between low- and high-income countries for capacity development in global health research: experience from the Karolinska Institutet/Makerere University partnership.

Enabling dynamic partnerships through joint degrees between low- and high-income countries for capacity development in global health research: experience from the Karolinska Institutet/Makerere University partnership.

The long-term arrangement has allowed time to develop partnerships at student, teacher, researcher, and administrative levels of the universities. This has created many spin-off collab- orative activities in education and research. Long-term collaboration attracting additional re- sources in an environment in which research money is also available from large funders such as PEPFAR and the Medical Education Partnership Initiative (MEPI) [13–15] has reduced the risk of brain drain at Mak—to date, all the graduates have stayed in Uganda after completing their PhDs, with the exception of short or long postdoc periods abroad. We see these postdocs abroad as “brain circulation,” providing new skills and experiences as the postdocs have re- turned. Zero brain drain is a major achievement in a context in which the challenges in ensur- ing appropriate human resources for health research are considerable [2]. The sandwich arrangement also enabled male and female students alike to maintain social, cultural, and fami- ly lives while studying, which may be considerably harder in residential programs overseas.
