Advertise / K-P health officials fret over missing family planning target
« on: September 18, 2018, 02:43:08 PM »
With the population growing at a ratio of 2.41 per cent, the lower spending on family planning and reproductive health besides along with a host of other issues which have yet to be resolved, the country could fail to achieve its family planning (FP) target of 2020.
Failing this major target, the country would be on track to miss its Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) 2030 for the availability of services to women on family planning and reproductive health, just as was the case for the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs).
According to the census report for 2017, the population is growing at a rate of 2.41 per cent across the country. In Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa, where the population nearly doubled from 17.7 million in 1998 to 30.52 million in 2017, the population has grown at a rate of 2.8 per cent.
Punjab clocked in a slower 2.1 per cent growth, 2.4 per cent for Sindh and 3.1 per cent for Balochistan.
Officials say that the London summit for FP2020 decided that family planning and reproductive health (FPRH) services will be provided to 120 million women in 71 countries across the world with some 7 million in Pakistan. This, however, may not be met.
Officials say some Rs 14.8 billion was allocated for family planning for a population of 220 million, or around Rs60 per individual — around Rs 250 less than international standards
“We are not even close to it,” explained National Health Services Regulation and Coordination Director General Abdul Ghaffar Khan to The Express Tribune.
During a quarterly meeting of the Country Engagement Working Group (CEWG) in the provincial capital last week, officials shared details of the programmers status in all the provinces.
The Pakistan Demographic Health Survey (PDHS) 2017 shows that 34 per cent of all married women use any method of family planning. Of these, 25 per cent opt for modern methods while nine per cent rely on traditional methods.
Among currently married women, the most popular modern family planning method is the male contraceptive and female sterilization (each used by nine per cent). Contraceptive prevalence rates (CPR) amongst married women vary with age, rising from seven per cent among women between the ages of 15-19, peaking at 48 per cent for women between the ages of 40-44, and then slightly declining to 37 per cent amongst women of 45-49 years of age.
More women in urban areas are more likely to use a contraceptive method than women in rural areas, 43 per cent versus 29 per cent respectively.
The use of contraceptive methods, both modern as well as traditional, increases with education and wealth, the PDHS report says.
For instance, 22 per cent of married women with no education used a modern method of contraception compared to 30 per cent of women with secondary or higher levels of education.
Similarly, seven per cent of currently married women with no education used a traditional method compared with 14 per cent of women who had a higher level of education.

Balochistan has the highest maternal mortality rate in the country, with the nonavailability of female gynaecologists in rural parts of the province being one of the prime reasons.
Dera Bugti district is one such part of Balochistan where maternal mortality rate is on a constant rise because a large number of delivery cases are handled by untrained midwives as gynaecologists are not willing to work in rural areas.
A recent death of a pregnant woman, Mehnaz Bibi, once again brings to fore the acute shortage – in fact the absence – of gynaecologists in rural parts of the province
It was on Thursday evening when Mehnaz was taken to the District Headquarter Hospital Dera Bugti by her family members where they were assured that the delivery would go normally. “After a medical procedure spanning hours, we were informed that Mehnaz’s case had turned critical, and she must be shifted to Rahim Yar Khan,” said Badshah Maratha Bugti, Mehnaz’s cousin. “But she died on way to Rahim Yar Khan, which is more than 500km from Dera Bugti, with the baby inside her womb.”
Mehnaz’s family called upon the provincial government to appoint four to five lady doctors in Dera Bugti so that nobody else would have to face such a tragedy. “Our sister is gone due to lack of doctors and healthcare, but we don’t want any more people to suffer as she did,” Badshah said.
At least 24 maternal mortality cases were reported in Dera Bugti this year, with nine in this month alone. Local people claim the number is higher as many cases remain unreported.
The recent surge in the maternal mortality cases initiated a debate on social and mainstream media over the healthcare facilities available in Dera Bugti district, which is the country’s major producer of natural gas. The increasing number of such cases also questions the performance of the provincial government.
Nawabzada Gohram Bugti, the MPA from the district, holds previous governments responsible for failing to address the issue by appointing female gynaecologists in his constituency. “A lady doctor had been appointed in the District Headquarter Dera Bugti four days back on my directives but a single gynaecologist can’t handle all the cases,” Gohram Bugti said.
“Being a member of the provincial coalition government, I have requested CM Jam Kamal to appoint specialists in Dera Bugti for addressing such cases,” he added.
Gohram Bugti admitted that the mortality rate is higher than the official figures. “According to my information, two deaths are being reported every week in the district,” he said. “Unfortunately, untrained and negligent staff was appointed by the previous regimes, but they can’t be allowed to play with the lives of our mothers and sisters.”
“They have to be sincere towards their duties or we will take strict action against them,” he added. Gohram Bugti reiterated that he would raise the issue on all platforms and seek Balochistan Chief Minister Jam Kamal’s immediate attention. “If the provincial government fails to appoint lady doctors in Dera Bugti, we will start a movement against it,” he added.
He said the provincial government had been giving salaries to doctors appointed in Dera Bugti but “they are not willing to work”. According to sources, the provincial government had appointed a female gynaecologist to treat the cases but she was not available when Mehnaz reached the hospital.
The sources said that one lady health worker at a hospital, that too lacking expertise to handle serious cases, cannot do the needful.

Advertise / Stigma associated with contraceptives
« on: September 14, 2018, 02:15:35 PM »
At just 14, Iqbal, a resident of the historic city of Bahawalpur is hard at work, helping out at his father’s shop. Since the family cannot afford to send him to school, the teenager makes himself useful at the location of his family’s bread and butter. Like most boys his age, Iqbal has realized that he has certain needs, or to put it more aptly; desires.
He likes the company of young boys and naturally gets attracted towards them. He now puts on his mother’s clothes and tries some make up whenever he is left alone in her room. He finds the action has a soothing effect on him. It has been some time since the realization that he wants to live as a woman, and not a man, dawned upon him.
One day, his brother catches and remembers that night as one of the most dreadful of his life. He was beaten by both his father and brother. Now leading a miserable existence, he has to come to terms with his inner conflict on a daily basis. However, in fear of more punishment, he confesses to his father that he wishes to live the remainder of his days as a female.
Now, the whole family turned hostile. From father to brother, from uncle to cousins, beating Iqbal is considered an everyday activity.
Their quotidian torture becomes abortive. Instead of being convinced to act straight like a man, Iqbal has decided to leave his house in search for a life free from abuse; one in which he can become the “woman” he always wanted to be. He packed his bags and ended up in Lahore and has been a Lahori ever since.
He finds shelter with Khwaja Siras near Anarkali Bazaar. Driven by his instinctive desires and economic crisis, he cross-dresses and works as a dancer and a sex worker in the city.
Iqbal is now maintaining a to-do list which is topped by a sex change operation. Unfortunately for him, the earnings are not enough for him to afford an operation anytime soon.
He is active in sexual activities and has had many partners. Most of his partners do not agree to wear condoms and prefer unsafe sex.
http://www.forumpakistan.com.pk/haspatal-f34.html
One day, he experiences flu-like symptoms and ignores them, believing it’s just a bug doing the rounds. Four days later, his condition deteriorates. He goes to a doctor, who tells him to go to an infectious disease specialist.
The specialist asks about his sex life, including the number of partners and if he was using protection. He replies in the negative. The specialist then asks Iqbal to take an HIV test and provide a urine sample.

Nearly half of the children under the age of five years suffer from stunted growth, said health and child rights experts, while expressing concern over acute food shortage across the province.

Sharing a research presentation at a meeting organised on Wednesday by Scaling Up Civil Society Alliance Pakistan (SUN-CSA, Pak) and Nutrition International with support from Health and Nutrition Development Society (Hands),  they demanded implementation of the ‘inter sectorial nutrition strategy’ made by the government around three years ago and enforcement of the Sindh Protection and Promotion of Breastfeeding Act to overcome the acute malnutrition
problem in Sindh.

During the four-hour-long discussion on the issue, the participants pledged to play their role in prioritising nutrition at the policy level in Sindh and raise public awareness on the adverse effects of malnutrition.
Speaking on the occasion, Hands Chief Executive Officer Dr Sheikh Tanveer Ahmed said that nearly half of the children under five years of age in Sindh are stunted due to chronic malnutrition, a condition that has lifelong consequences on their physical and mental development.  He said the media, considered as the fourth pillar of the state, can play a powerful and active role through sustained focus on nutrition reporting. He urged the media to highlight the issue of malnutrition

The Punjab Emergency Service (Rescue 1122) launched a programme called ‘First Aider at Every Home’ on the eve of World First Aid Day which was marked on September 8. The objective was to highlight the importance of the administration of first aid for all citizens.
Rescue 1122 Director General Dr Rizwan Naseer launched the programme at an event held at Rescue 1122 head office on Ferozepur Road on Saturday.
Under the programme, people will be taught how to prevent further injuries and save lives through first aid training in all districts of Punjab.
An awareness walk was also organised by the Rescue 1122. Dr Naseer led the walk and appreciated all district emergency services which helped establish and train community emergency response teams (CERTs) at the union council level. The officers of Emergency Service Headquarters, District Emergency Officer, Lahore, officials and a large number of rescue scouts (volunteers) participated in the event. Dr Naseer welcomed all the volunteers and briefed them about the importance of World First Aid Day and first aid training by giving examples of rescue operations. He said that first aid has been provided to 1,415,092 victims of emergencies since the inception of the service.
The Punjab Emergency Service registered over 150, 000 personnel and trained 60,000 rescue scouts to further launch the First Aider Programme in every home across the province, he added
He said trained rescue scouts in all union councils of Punjab would educate community members. The DG stressed only well-trained locals can significantly contribute to reducing the morbidity and mortality rate by providing immediate assistance to the victims of emergencies in the initial stage. He also requested people to join hands with the service to learn lifesaving skills which can further contribute to respective areas. “Collective efforts are highly needed to establish safe and resilient communities in the country.”

The Balochistan High Court (BHC) on Monday ordered the provincial health secretary to form an effective mechanism to provide relief for poor patients.
http://www.jobz.pk/government-jobs-in-balochistan.html
A divisional bench of the BHC, comprising Justice Jamal Mandokhail and Justice Kamran Mullahkhail, heard a petition concerning the lack of facilities for poor patients at the Civil Hospital Quetta, as well as the Residential Colony for staff.
Provincial Health Secretary Saleh Mohammad Nasir, the medical superintendent of the Civil Hospital, senior doctors and petitioner’s lawyer Advocate Haq Dad appeared before the court.
Justice Mandokhail ordered the health secretary that the Provincial Health Department should pursue a mechanism for providing relief to poor patients.
The health secretary replied that a sub-committee had been working to devise a mechanism “but it is hard to identify who among the patients is poor and who is rich”.
Justice Mandokhail pointed out that a large numbers of patients could not afford a high fees like Rs2,000 or Rs3,000, and asked as to who was responsible for deciding what fees should be charged from which patients.
The secretary replied that the provincial finance department was responsible for determining the fees. He also informed the court that funds for medicines were yet to be released by the finance department, even though the provincial government had imposed emergency in the health sector.
Justice Mandokhail directed the health and finance departments to make joint efforts and issued a short order regarding the functioning of the hospital.
The court directed the health secretary to get the hospital refurbished, besides getting the houses inside the hospital vacated and arranging for alternative residential quarters for doctors and other staff members.
Advocate Haq Dad told the court that at least 19 deaths had been reported in Dera Bugti due to the non-availability of a gynecologist at the district headquarter hospital. The health secretary informed the court that four doctors and a gynecologist had been appointed in Dera Bugti, but they didn’t report.
The court told the health secretary to declare Sheikh Zayed Hospital as a teaching hospital so that it could also function like Civil and Bolan Medical Complex hospitals.

If you are someone who swears by Haleeb milk, we have good news for you! The Supreme Court ruled on March 9, 2017 that the UHT Haleeb milk is fit for consumption.
In order to raise awareness about the safety of the milk you consume, your favourite brand, Haleeb Foods, has launched the much needed initiative, #KnowYourMilk .
Those of you who follow Junaid Akram must have come across his recent post in which he contested that the food industry should have greater transparency. Haleeb foods, known for its transparency, promptly invited him for a plant visit in Lahore.
On a lighter note, Akram joked that the milk passes through more tests than we do. The cleared milk is then chilled before it is sent to the processing unit. The milk is pasteurized and ultra-heated to kill the bacteria after which it is aseptically filled in containers under a zero bacteria environment.

A team of Pakistani researchers has successfully developed a cost-effective technology to clean poisonous arsenic in drinking water through watermelon rind.
Scientists at the University of Agriculture Faisalabad (UAF) examined many natural biowastes for arsenic removal and finally discovered that chemically modified “xanthated watermelon rind” is the best to catch arsenic usually found in abundance in groundwater across many parts of the world.
According to World Health Organisation (WHO), arsenic is naturally found in soil and groundwater in many countries. Arsenic pollution is common in Bangladesh, India, Nepal, China, Pakistan and some parts of Americas. Long exposure of arsenic polluted water is lethal and 43,000 people die of it annually.
Arsenic is found in wells and deep reservoirs. Various methods and filters are available to clean the arsenic from water, but some of them are very costly and thus unaffordable due to their high price. But the watermelon rind filter is the cheapest method developed, thus far.

Asia’s growing appetite for meat and seafood over the next three decades will cause huge increases in greenhouse gas emissions and antibiotics used in foods, researchers said on Tuesday.
Rising population, incomes and urbanisation will drive a 78 per cent increase in meat and seafood demand from 2017 to 2050, according to a report by Asia Research and Engagement Pte Ltd, a Singapore-based consultancy firm.
“We wanted to highlight that, because of the large population and how fast the population is growing, it is going to put a strain on the environment,” said co-author Serena Tan. “By recognising this and where it comes from, we can tackle the solutions,” she told the Thomson Reuters Foundation.
With supply chains ramping up to meet demand, greenhouse gas emissions will jump from 2.9 billion tonnes of CO2 per year to 5.4 billion tonnes – the equivalent of the lifetime emissions of 95 million cars – the researchers said. A land area the size of India will be needed for additional food production, according to the report, while water use will climb from 577 billion cubic meters per year to 1,054 billion
cubic meters per year.
The use of antimicrobials – which kill or stop the growth of micro-organisms, and include antibiotics – will increase 44 per cent to 39,000 tonnes per year, said the report, which was commissioned by the Hong Kong-based ADM Capital Foundation.
Overuse and misuse of antibiotics in food is rife in Southeast Asia, the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) said this year, warning of serious risks for people and animals as bacterial infections become more resistant to treatment.
Growing urban areas contribute to the rising demand for meat and seafood, because people there usually have better access to electricity and refrigeration, said David Dawe, a senior economist at the FAO in Bangkok. “But income growth is the big driver,” he added. Indonesia, Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar and Pakistan are among nations likely to contribute most to the rise in meat and seafood consumption, while countries with ageing populations, like China, will likely limit growth, Tan said.

Advertise / Hepatitis A, E risks increases by rain
« on: September 04, 2018, 02:20:45 PM »
With the advent of the monsoon season and in the aftermath of rains, water from overflowing gutters seeps into water tanks of homes and supply lines of reservoirs contaminating the water which is the leading cause of diseases such as hepatitis A and E .
Medical experts have advised public to take precautions against hepatitis A and E viruses during the rainy season due to the intake of contaminated food and water.
Hepatologist Dr Umair Qayyum said there is an urgent need to create awareness about hepatitis, which is also a called a silent killer virus that can creep into the body from minor blood exposures.
He said contaminated water generates the virus causing hepatitis A and E as the water is contaminated with faeces during monsoon season, and if someone drinks such water without boiling or distilling, one is likely to be infected with hepatitis.
“Virus is transmitted when an uninfected person consumes contaminated food or water. So one must be very carefully during monsoon, one must drink boiled water and eat foods washed in purified water,” cautions Dr Qayyum.
“If a patient feels lazy and has unusually very yellow urine, then know that these are the symptoms of hepatitis. Some may also suffer from constipation or diarrhea, and pain in joints. However, tests are necessary to find out the type of hepatitis,” the hepatologist said.
To prevent oneself from acquiring hepatitis A and E viruses, one must take care of their health.
Dr Qayyum pointed out, “One must consume water and food that aren’t contaminated. Personal hygiene and sanitation must be maintained. One must be aware of one’s responsibility for their health.
He adds that there has been an increase in the incidence of Hepatitis A among teenagers and adults with severe symptoms that are similar to other viral hepatitis.
“Children and adults who have been previously vaccinated against hepatitis A are practically at very low risk of developing the infection. However, those who have not been vaccinated, people with poor hygiene and people living with an infected individual are at high risk of acquiring the Hepatitis A infection.”
