one important agenda here is vaccination, parents with no or a little education fall prey to prejudices that vaccine is harmful. These sometimes are made strong by reported cases of vaccine causing death such as in Bihar. For that we need to strengthen the cold chain. online cctv and other technological expertise may be used to monitor the cold chain its manufacturing and distribution

the maximum no of death are occurring in children between 0-7. to prevent this we need to knw the exact reason for the death. it may be common for many children in many area or due to birth defects. therefore, the health of child needs to be monitored regularly since its birth. the school, local bodies, health institution in area be called to maintain the record of health of children. it will also provide them with details in case the child is allergic to something etc.

Homoeopathy (classical) may be tried because many times children cannot tolerate strong drugs. Adequate arrangement in health set ups may help the parents to choose among different recognized medicinal system for their child problem.

Making all the citizens feel responsible for maintaining cleanliness while using public properties like roads, parks, bridges etc., People spitting on road is a very common phenomenon in India. Which should be avoided. If that is avoided half of the diseases prevailing in India will vanish. So we all should start a drive to make everybody feel responsible for the public properties in India.
