27th March 2014 : Historical Day in field of Public Health to end Polio in Nepal

Nepal has been maintaining certificate standard AFP surveillance since 2001. The surveillance system is sensitive enough to detect polio cases and circulating derived poliovirus. Nepal was declared polio -free by the Regional Certification Commission on 27 March 2014. Nepal adopted the strategies developed by the WHO such as active AFP surveillance, Routine Immunization, SIAs and Mop-up to achieve the goal of Polio eradication. The CHD took lead in planning, delivering and managing the National Immunization Program including polio throughout the country.

World TB Day - Unite to End TB!!

What is World TB Day? World TB Day is held each year on March 24th and aims to build public awareness for tuberculosis. A disease which despite being curable, remains a destructive epidemic in much of the world. On this day, we commemorate Dr Robert Koch’s announcement in 1882 of his discovery of the TB bacillus, the cause of tuberculosis. His groundbreaking research opened the way toward diagnosing and curing this disease. World TB Day is an opportunity for people everywhere to join this fight by helping to educate others about TB and by urging governments to take action. We believe that together we can End TB for once and for all: Unite to End TB! The Red Arrow : A Symbol to Unite Us Against TB The Red Arrow is a symbol for our goal: a world without TB. It represents our unwavering commitment to move forward with this mission until we reach the finish line.

Disability Rights/Research Advocacy and Skills Training In Communication - A DRASTIC COURSE

Disability Rights/Research Advocacy and Skills Training In Communication - A DRASTIC COURSE Course Overview This course is designed to respond to the increasing interest in actively engaging disabled people in research as co-researchers. The objective of the course is that people, closely involved with disability issues, both disabled and non-disabled, are encouraged to identify research needs and to develop and sharpen research skills. We firmly believe research findings need to be translated into meaningful expression in the lives of people implicated in research and in order to facilitate this process, advocacy and communication training skills need to be enhanced. Facilitators: Fiona Budge (MSc Medical Anthropology and Sociology, UvA, NL) and Dr Beatriz Miranda-Galarza, PhD Disability Studies (Leeds University, U.K) READ MORE INFORMATION Source of Info & Contact : Nabaraj Adhikari
