Gondia: Different programs are being run by the government on one hand to overcome the problem of malnutrition. On the other hand, due to the health department’s neglected policies, the problem of malnutrition in the district is increasing. The shocking type of malnourishment has been stopped by the Nutrition Cell of the Bai Gangabai Women Hospital, which is being treated at malnourished children.
Since Gondia district is a tribal dominated and inaccessible area, the problem of malnutrition in the district is acute. In the district, 1038 children are in the malnutrition category, out of which 228 children are severely malnourished. The health department has been able to treat malnourished children at the Taluka level and take medicines. Nutrition nursing center has been started at Bai Gangabai Women Hospital here.
Medical officers, nurses, dieticians have been appointed for this. Malnutrition in the district is registered at the center and treated with malnutrition. However, the District Health Department has totally ignored this center in the present situation. Since the last three or four days, the Nutrition Rehabilitation Center has been locked and there were no malnourished children.
Specifically, the post of medical officer and recruitment officer in this center is also vacant from the last three to four months. So this center starts only on the basis of dietician’s trust. The follow-up was done by ZP Department for the recruitment of vacancies of medical officers and other employees of this center. However, the settlement has not yet been settled.
Since then, this nutrition has been started at the rehabilitation center. Claiming that widespread efforts have been made to eradicate malnutrition through health department and integrated child development center. On the other hand, due to the closure of the Nutrition Center, the lock-up center is 12 o’clock of malnutrition prevention campaign. During the nutritional center, the workers were asked to say that they are currently running Navaratri festival and there is no lodging of the children.
CEO should assured
Earlier, Lokmat had pointed out the issue of health department to the problem of nutrition at Nangbai Rehabilitation Center in Gangaibai Women Hospital. After this, the Chief Operating Officer, M. Raja Dayanidhi, urgently asked the District Health Officers to pay attention to paying attention to it. Also, we had promised to visit our own regular center. However, the center has resumed from last week. That is why the CEO’s assurance is also in the air.
