India sees a significant decline in under-five mortality

As per the recently released mortality estimates by the UNICEF, WHO, the United Nations Population Division, and the World Bank Group, an estimated 6.3 million children under 15 years of age died in 2017, or 1 every 5 seconds. This is mostly out of preventable causes. In 2017, 2.5 million newborns died in their first month while 5.4 million deaths — occur in the first five years of life, with newborns accounting for around half of the deaths.

Most children under 5 die due to preventable or treatable causes such as complications during birth, pneumonia, diarrhea, neonatal sepsis and malaria. By comparison, among children between 5 and 14 years of age, injuries become a more prominent cause of death, especially from drowning and road traffic.

Speaking about this, Padma Shri Awardee, Dr KK Aggarwal, President, HCFI, said, “A newborn requires thermal and cord care, and immediate breastfeeding. The postnatal period is the time following delivery until six weeks after birth, and health checks during this time – especially the first two days after delivery – are essential. Postnatal care can help in checking for and averting any danger signs such as insufficient feeding, fast breathing (a breathing rate of more than 60 per minute), severe chest in drawing, lethargy, fever, low body temperature, or jaundice. This is also the time when mothers are advised on how to identify and respond to these symptoms, as well as the benefits of exclusive breastfeeding and immunization.”

About 80% of newborn deaths can be prevented through proven high-impact interventions and quality care for small and sick infants around the time of birth. It is also imperative to provide proper and timely vaccinations.

Adding further, Dr Aggarwal, who is also the President (Elect) of CMAAO, said, “India has seen a significant decline of 8% in the number of infant deaths this year compared to that in the year 2016. This has largely been the result of countrywide efforts to expand health services coverage, including reproductive, maternal and newborn health services. However, there is a still a long way to go in terms of expanding the reach of such efforts into the remote areas and ensuring access to postnatal healthcare to mothers and newborns there.”

Matchmaking of the Magic Cells – A Gift of Life by GeneBandhu

“It is rightly said, a friend in need is a friend indeed, so is GeneBandhu and Zorawar Ji for Me.”, says Tejveer, an 18 yr old pehelwani aspirant from Hissar, who was diagnosed with withAcute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL), 4 years back. The sole solution to fight this fatal disease and save his life was a bone marrow transplant. In fact, India is still a wellspring of untapped genetic knowledge; there is a lack of awareness about the concept itself. Finding a Human Leucocyte Antigen(HLA) match for bone marrow transplant is no less than a miracle where there is little data of Indian genotype and a handful of Indian registries. GeneBandhu, an NGO has successfully maintained an incredible database in the specialized sector and created a stem cell registry by recruiting voluntary donors over the years.

Tejveer Singh had the ambition to represent India at Olympics as a wrestler. Unfortunately, he was diagnosed with this life-threatening disease, which occurs when a bone marrow cell develops errors in its DNA. His dream started to fade away in front of his eyes. A family drive was conducted to find a match for Tejveer but no one from the family matched. Hence, the only solution to escape this fatal disease was a bone marrow transplant from a matched unrelated donor (MUD). In the midst of agony, the doctors gave them a ray of hope. They had found a MUD match on the GeneBandhu registry and the donor was Indian. With their expertise and extensive database, GeneBandhu, identified Zorawar Singh, a daily wage carpenter, Tejveer’s genetic friend.

Bone marrow harvesting enables the extraction of stem cells, which are the seeds of healing for such blood and genetic disorders. It is not a painful process as it was a decade back but the awareness of this is limited to the families who suffer from this painful ordeal themselves. Transplant technology in India is highly specialized and advanced but due to the lack of registered donors, support and action thousands of people surrender to the disease. GeneBandhu is assiduously working towards bridging this gap through their successful self-made database of people from different ethnic and geographical backgrounds.

It is 3 years later, Tejveer is healthy and leading a normal life. As per Government norms, a registry cannot disclose the identity of the donor and recipient to each other for a year after the transplant. GeneBandhu also took an initiative to organize a meeting between the donor and the recipient after 3 years of the transplant. Tejveer and Zorawar met each other and commemorated their unification.

Speaking about the scenario, Tejveer Singh, the survivor said, “I have met my real-life hero, today and I am overjoyed, blessed and cheerful to get an opportunity to spend quality time with my gene-buddy. I am extremely thankful to GeneBandhu for introducing true hero to me.”

Demonstrating the immense joy, Zorawar Singh, Donor, said, “If I can save a life, I will help in whatever way I can. I will do as God wills. It doesn’t matter if I lose 2 days of wages or have to give my bone marrow. I am pleased to see Tejveer fulfilling my dream as I also wanted tobe a pehelwaan.”

Celebrating success, Dr Vimarsh Raina, Founder &President, GeneBandhu, said, “Every year, India has 1.2 million cases of cancer and life-threatening blood disorders like thalassemia and a plastic anaemia. These disorders and many more can easily be treated with a bone-marrow transplant. Stem cells from donors at the right time can save 60-80% of children with cancers and blood disorders. We, at GeneBandhu, strive to rise above the fear of blood disorders by providing a ready solution to all blood disorders, by building an extensive and diversified data pool of voluntary stem cells donors and aspire to see the next transplantation under 10 lakhs INR.”

V Resorts; adopts Surajkund Monument under “Adopt-A-Heritage” at Paryatan Parv 2018 Opening by Rajnath Singh

V Resorts, a leisure hospitality chain with over 150 resorts across 21 states in India, was awarded the MoU for the Surajkund Monument to develop the heritage site and build world-class tourist amenities and experiences. The ceremony was held in New Delhi at the launch of the Paryatan Parv 2018 with the hon’ble Minister of Home Affairs Mr. Rajnath Singh, along with the Minister of State for Tourism, Mr. K J Alphons.

The Parv is being organised with the objective of drawing focus on the benefits of tourism, showcasing the cultural diversity of the country and reinforcing the principle of tourism for all, the ministry said. The ‘Adopt a Heritage’ scheme is an initiative of the Ministry of Tourism launched in September 2017 on World Tourism Day. Under it, the government invites entities to develop selected monuments and heritage sites by providing and maintaining basic amenities, including, site illumination, ease of access, standardized signages, cleanliness, etc., along with advanced amenities such as surveillance systems, tourism facilitation centres and more. V Resorts, which received the letter of intent (LoI) for Surajkund along with 6 other sites, at the Bharat Parv organized in January this year, has now officially been awarded the MoU to adopt the Surajkund site.

Special Quilt presented to Rajnath Singh

While awarding the MoU to V Resorts, Rajnath Singh was presented with a special gift from the V Resorts team – a unique quilt made with 100 fabrics from around the country, especially selected, sourced and put together by the V Resorts team.

Speaking about the award, Aditi Balbir, Founder &CEO of V Resorts said, “One of the core aims for us at V Resorts is to showcase India and all its rich heritage to the world. In the case of Surajkund, we realized that the place is now primarily known for its fare (mela) and the main water tank – the kund, is something that has been neglected for years and now has very little tourist recall. We are delighted that through this project, we will get the opportunity to revive the monument and make it a place worth visiting not just for people from NCR but from all over the world.”
