A bureaucrat statement on Thursday conveyed that, the World Health Organisation (WHO) presented India the certificates announcing removal of yaws, maternal and neonatal tetanus. The certificates were obtainable to the Health Minister J.P Nadda at an occasion prearranged here. India’s paying attention approach on making maternal and newborn care easy to get to to all and concentrate on health care equity more generally has made these notable successes possible. Poonam Khetrapal Singh, Regional Director, World Health Organisation South-East Asia Region conveyed that, these victories are not only India’s but all of humanity’s as the country accounts for just about one-sixth of the world’s population. WHO certified India yaws-free subsequent to a squad of experts verified interruption of disease transmission in the nation this year in May.
India increased the tag of neonatal and maternal tetanus free country in 2015. Khetrapal further conveyed that, both yaws and maternal and neonatal tetanus eliminations were achieved using the existing health system and physical condition workforce. Khetrapal also further conveyed that, sustained political promise, clear policies, unified strategies, close supervision and monitoring tireless efforts of the front line workers and invaluable support of partners, particularly for MNTE, were the key factors for these public health feats. Yaws is a chronic bacterial disease that affects the skin, bones and cartilages.
