Mangaluru: Hospitals to be Served Notice for Negligence – DC Ibrahim

Mangaluru: The District Health Mission meeting was held at the Deputy Commissioners office here, on November 30.

The report of ‘Mission Indhradhanush’ was read out and it came to light that many children had missed the vaccination drive.

After discussions the reasons for non administration of vaccination among the local population were found to be, sickness, children being out of town during the drive and “refusal” by the people, said Dr Ramachandra Rao, District Health Officer (DHO). “Migrant population brings in diseases and spread diseases to the children in anganwadis. We need to tackle the migrating masses,” he added.

The Deputy Commissioner, A B Ibrahim then ordered that steps should be taken to tackle these problems. He said, “Awareness of the programme should be increased.
