Mangalore, April 23: As part of the world health day campaign of World Health Organisation, a special programme was organised under the joint auspices of Dakshina Kannada District Administration, Dakshina Kannada Zilla Panchayat and Department of health and family welfare, Dakshina Kannada at Infosys Children Care Centre in the city on Friday, 23 April.

Speaking to the audience after the formal inauguration of the programme, P Shivashankar, the Chief Executive Officer of Zilla Panchayat, Mangalore, said that the man kind is facing pressure of urbanisation.

Explaining the problems that are being faced by health department, he said that privatisation drive created bad impact on the life of common people, who are deprived of their health care rights.

Criticising the pro-privatisation policy of Government, he said that Government hospitals are being handed over to the private owners, who are committed to take over ‘health industry’.

“Our Government recently introduced a number of 108 ambulances. But, do you know how many patients are taken to Government hospitals by these vehicles? These vehicles are only serving private hospitals”, he said.

Tracing on the ineffectiveness of Government hospitals, Shivshankar said that people rarely go to Government hospitals.

Calling upon the health department to promote its service especially in rural areas, he said that only the human face of the doctors can attract patients to Government hospitals.

Dr. H Jagannath, District Health and Family Welfare Officer explained the objectives of the World Health Day as given by WHO. ‘Be part of a global movement to make cities healthier is this year’s theme’, he said, adding that due to the stress and working environment, more and more urban people face health problems like obesity, diabetes etc. He also explained the ill-effects of global warming on the health of the people.

K Santhosh Kumar Bhandari, President of Zilla Panchayat presided over the programme. Dr. Sundresh welcomed the gathering.

On the same occasion many Government doctors and nurses of the District were conferred awards and cash prizes for their excellent service.

Dr. Shashikala and Dr. Vishweshwar were among those present.
