"The Committee is dismayed to note that the Department, at the initial stage, has failed to project its budgetary requirements in an effective and prudent way, which is evident from the fact that the Planning Commission has requested the Department to indicate the schemes/programmes where the allocation is insufficient. The Committee would like the Department to process the matter with a sense of urgency so that the stumbling blocks in the allocation of sufficient funds for a crucial sector like health are removed."

"That while innumerable medical and paramedical professionals per one lakh population may be required, the crucial role of public health in relation to health sector reforms needs recognition. But for these paramedical professionals to whom you are calling "accredited social activists", when and how are you going to train?"

 

Then the Expert Committee on Public Health System, in 1996, constituted by the Government of India, emphasised the need for public health skills at district level to provide the interface between surveillance and management of disease control programmes on the one hand while attending to the causes of mitigation of high IMR, U5MR and MMR.

SHRI S.S. AHLUWALIA (contd.): , CAG "A large number of Central and Centrally-sponsored health programmes are being implemented at the national level. These programmes are financed mainly by the Ministry and outlays involved constitute about 70% of the Plan allocation of the Department of Health. However, these programmes had been kept out of the purview of the internal audit. The audit of public sector units under the Department, grantee institutions, autonomous bodies like AIIMS, PGI, Chandigarh were also kept out of jurisdiction of internal audit. Since large amounts of grants, loans, advances, etc., are advanced to these undertakings, autonomous bodies, keeping these outside the jurisdiction of internal audit defeats the purpose of having an internal audit wing in the Ministry."

SHRI C. PERUMAL (TAMIL NADU): Sir, I whole heartedly thank you for the opportunity given to me to speak on a subject which is close to the hearts of over a hundred crore people of this great country. Health is a subject which is connected with everyone's day-to-day life. So, it is very dear to us all. I am very happy to say that awareness on health has increased in the minds of the people and now there is a demand that the right to health should be guaranteed as a Fundamental Right under the Constitution on the pattern of Right to Work, Right to Information, etc. So, I urge that this demand should be met with, so that the hospitals across the country, whether they are in the Government sector or in the private sector be made accountable.

When we talk about the working of the Ministry of Health, it is very sad to mention here that the Government's many health programmes are not functioning effectively. Look at the case of Vector-borne Diseases Control and Mental Health Programmes. Even the hon. Minister had accepted the fact that these programmes are not performing effectively. The number of Malaria cases went up from just 50,000 annually in the 1960s to between 1.8 and 2 million in 2006, with 1,140 deaths. The number could be much higher as surveillance was low. Another cause of concern which I would like to point out here is about the iron deficiency, anaemia disorder in pregnancy is adversely affecting maternal and foetal health. Despite several national programmes targeting control and treatment of anaemia during pregnancy, the success has not been as anticipated. Therefore, I would like to know from the hon. Minister what are the steps taken by the Government in this context. (CONTD. BY PB "2Y")

PB/2Y/2.50

SHRI C. PERUMAL (CONTD.): It is the need of the hour that the Government should employ modern technologies to contain these diseases. Look at the case of Chickenpox. More than 15 districts in Tamil Nadu are affected by it and more than 4,000 people are afflicted with Chickenpox. The State Government has totally failed to give relief to the people or in containing these diseases.

Though we have taken some steps to improve the cleanliness of the hospitals in the country, yet we need to pay more attention towards it. I would like to cite an example of the conditions of the hospitals in the country. Recently, in a Government hospital in Kerala, 23 babies died in a month's time due to hospital-acquired infections. I think this incident alone will help in opening the eyes of the officials of the Health Ministry. I would like to know what steps are being taken by the Government in this regard.

Another burning issue on which l would like to express my view is about AIDS. According to many reports, including the World Health Organisation's report on AIDS, India is slowly taking the lead to become the second largest country to have maximum number of HIV positive cases next to South Africa's figure on AIDS. We need to concentrate more on that. It is this deadly disease which is going to cost the nation dearly. A major challenge in preventing the mother-to-child transmission of HIV infection is the lack of institutional deliveries. Out of the 27 million births annually, only 12 per cent of expectant mothers had been tested last year. Out of the 46,000 found HIV positive, only 50 per cent had access to medical care. Today, we have between 50,000 and 1 lakh HIV infected children, of whom 43,000 are under the anti-retroviral therapy. Sir, today's children are tomorrow's parents and leaders of this country, and therefore, we need to look upon it on an urgent basis. During AIADMK's regime in Tamil Nadu, Dr. Puratchi Thalaivi had taken many measures in this regard and, today Tamil Nadu is doing exceedingly well to contain this disease. In many states, the institutional deliveries are very low.

Sir, in every season, many diseases are reported whether it is Chickun Gunya or Dengu. We wake up only when the disease is spread and when it becomes an alarming situation. By the time the Government takes action, a lot of causalities have already taken place. So, I urge upon the Government to have disaster management, especially, for communicable diseases in order to take action on a war footing basis and also to advance action prior to spreading the disease from one area to another.

One more thing I wish to mention here and it is about the growing diseases like cancer, heart diseases, diabetics, etc. The problem is that at the hospitals in rural areas, there are no facilities for the treatment of these diseases and the poor rural people have to move to cities and towns to get treatment. Therefore, I would like to know from the hon. Minister whether his Ministry is considering these issues.

Sir, recently it has been widely reported in the Press media that India has become a hub for all clinical trials for the multinational companies from abroad. The strict laws in Europe and other countries have forced these MNCs to come to India to conduct clinical trials on humans. So, my question is whether the Government is considering to introduce a tough law on clinical trials, so that no one is able to play with the health of Indian people.

Finally, Sir, I would like to talk about yoga and Indian systems of medicines. Both these are gaining popularity all over the world but the place from where it has been originated is neglecting it. So I would like to know from the hon. Minister what plans his Ministry has got to popularise yoga and the Indian systems of medicine. (Contd. by 2z/SKC)

2z/2.55/skc-mcm

SHRI C. PERUMAL (CONTD.): Sir, when the AIADMK ruled in Tamil Nadu, a number of medical sub-centres were sanctioned to rural areas. Now, it has been stopped. When we brought the matter to the notice of the concerned office, we received the answer that the Central Health Ministry had not given concurrence. I would request the hon. Health Minister to look into it.

Sir, in our country, we find that in some of the hospitals innocent and poor people who undergo operations get their kidneys removed by doctors without their consent. I would like to know from the hon. Minister whether any step has been taken in this regard. What steps would the Ministry be taking to prevent such operations in future?

With these words, I would conclude my speech. Thank you, Sir.
