REPRODUCTIVE AND CHILD HEALTH PROGRAMME
REPRODUCTIVE AND CHILD HEALTH PROGRAMME
The International Conference of Population and Development (ICPD) 1994 established an International consensus on a new approach to policies to achieve population stabilisation. Fertility reduction should be addressed at the level of broad social policy, including reduction of gender discrimination in education, health care and income generation. Reproductive health programmes should focus the needs of actual and potential clients, not only for limiting births but also for healthy sexuality and child bearing. In India, the implications of the reproductive health approach would be to shift the focus from the use of family planning as a tool intended essentially for population stabilisation, to use family planning as one among a constellation of interventions that would enable women and men to achieve their personal reproductive goals without being subjected to additional burdens of disease and death associated with their reproduction.
Under the project weekly disease surveillance data on epidemic prone disease are being collected from reporting units such as sub centres, primary health centres, community health centres, hospitals including government and private sector hospitals and medical colleges. The data are being collected on ‘P’ probable; ‘L’ laboratory & ‘S’ syndromic formats using standard case definitions. There are 55 ‘P’ reporting units, 43 ‘L’ reporting units and 537 ‘S’ reporting units in Jalpaiguri district. The weekly data are analyzed by DSU for disease trends. Feedback is provided to the blocks for necessary action. Whenever there is rising trend of illnesses, it is investigated by the RRT to diagnose and control the outbreak. Infact, IDSP is intended to detect early warning signals of impending outbreaks and help to initiate an effective response in a timely manner. A network has been established with the referral Laboratories for sample testing especially during outbreak. Portal entry of weekly data is being done at District Surveillance Unit regularly. Training is being conducted from time to time for the health personnel those who are involved with reporting.
The name Jalpaiguri came from the word "jalpai" means "olive" which grew in the town and were seen even in 1900. The suffix "guri" means a place. The name as well be associated with Jalpesh, the presiding deity (Shiva) of the entire region. The district situated in the northern part of West Bengal has international borders with Bhutan and Bagladesh in the North and South respectively and borders with Assam and Darjeeling hills in the East, West and Northwest. The entire topography is crisscrossed with rivulets, rivers and hills. The district is primarily rural with more than 80% of rural population. It has also high percentage of SC/ST population. Relatively sizeable population resides in Tea Gardens and Forest villages which are isolated and mostly inaccessible. The district is the gateway to the entire North-Eastern States and Bhutan. Having high percentage of migrated population different cultural groups (Ranjbanshi, Ravas, Totos, Metch, Santhals, Madasia and Oraons) have created a unique cultural harmony which is rarely seen in other districts of West Bengal.
