Honb'le Sir, i think people should be made aware that the preventive mechanism are far better than the cure procedure. this project needs to be linked with Swatch Bharat Abhiyan, Education, dissemination of information through newspaper, social networking sites, bureaucratic level, i.e asking the DM, SDM, BDO etc to take public meetings on these issues. Schools and the local bodies should be asked to prepare a plan to maintain a health card, and thereafter linking it with the UIDAI card.

I am a PhD student and related with filarial survey. One thing I experienced is the utmost need of proper sanitation without which you can't control these diseases, proper sensitization of problem, severe staff crunch is there which is again hampering the programs. In addition to this, monitoring of programs should be done under Gov operated regional offices and not under state operated as we have noticed better results where monitoring is being done by ICMR regional institutes.

A two level approach is required. One- sensitisng the people about the nature of the spread of the diseases and there by involving in preventive measures at early stages before the situation turns into epidemic level. In the beginning of the season identification of pockets of danger and periodic fogging is required.
Second level- a good amount spent by the govt. on target oriented research on the issue will save crores of rupees (spent at individual level for medication).

Prepare large level trained workforce to educate school going children as well as children who are not able to attend school about prevention and control activities by educational as well as demonstration mode. I think there is a strong need of trained "Yoga & Health Education" teacher for every school in India.
