JE death rate brought  down by 95%: Yogi

Wednesday, 06 July 2022 | PNS | Lucknow

On the completion of 100 days of the second term of the BJP government in Uttar Pradesh, Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath highlighted the success of the Communicable Disease campaign and ‘Dastak’, saying the death rate due to Japanese Encephalitis has been brought down by 95 per cent.

While addressing people on the completion of 100 days of his government, the chief minister said, “Better public health is not only a result of good treatment but also awareness, inter-departmental coordination and teamwork. As a result of all these elements, eastern UP is moving quickly towards complete eradication of encephalitis.”

Aiming to prevent all water-borne and mosquito-borne diseases during the summers and subsequent rainy season, the Yogi government launched a special communicable disease campaign on July 1. He recalled that five years ago as soon as the month of July started, deaths due to encephalitis started occurring in eastern UP. “However, under the BJP government, ASHA/Anganwadi workers, Panchayati Raj department, Child Development and Nutrition department and the department of Empowerment of Persons with Disabilities have joined hands with the Health and Medical department, UNICEF, WHO and PATH organisations, which helped the state successfully control encephalitis and other communicable diseases,” Yogi said.

“The Japanese Encephalitis death rate has been reduced by 95 per cent and now there are hundreds of health, wellness and encephalitis treatment centres which help in controlling the diseases in the rainy season. Whether it is Japanese Encephalitis or Acute Encephalitis Syndrome, campaigns like special communicable disease control and ‘Dastak’ are very important for their complete eradication,” the CM said.

The door-to-door ‘Dastak’ campaign will be carried out in the state from July 16 to 31 to prevent the spread of encephalitis, malaria, dengue, filariasis and chikungunya. Under this campaign, medical teams will go door to door to identify patients suffering from infectious diseases.

By joining collectively with the Special Communicable Disease Control Campaign and Dastak Abhiyan, UP will be able to get effective control over every communicable disease. Under the campaign, ASHA/Anganwadi workers, employees of many departments and people of various organisations will go door to door making people aware about ways to prevent the diseases. Treatment will be arranged and medical kits will be provided to those found ill.

The Health department has been asked to coordinate with other departments to ensure all the necessary arrangements to prevent the spread of encephalitis, malaria and other diseases.
