- #1656Yes, there are many reasons behind such highest death rate in Odisha. You have rightly said, in many places people won't get two fold nutritious meals and suffered with deficiency diseases. One more reason, the lack of proper medical facilities. In many places hospitals are there but no doctor is there to take care of patients. Even in many places lack of modern techniques or facilities in hospitals also another reason for increasing death rate.
(Expect for the best but prepare for the worst)
- #1657Really its a problem prevailing in Odisha. I think its not the urban area but the remote tribal area which contributes more to it. There are still areas in the districts like Koraput, Rayagada, Phulbani, Kandhamal etc. which can't be accessed easily. Primary health centres and nursing homes are established by Govt., but lack of interest of doctors to work there adds to the problem of poor tribals. These tribal areas are malaria and diorrhea porne areas. Main cause is the contaminated water flowing from hills that they drink. Child marriage is also a problem in these areas. And lack of awareness regarding family planning is one of the cause of mal nutrition of both mother and child. Apart from it other small problems are there.
It is not that Govt. both central and state does not pay attention to it. Number of plans are formulated both at central as well as state levels. But the implementation part is in doubt. Proper implementation of the plans will reduce the problem to great extent.
Thanks & Regards
- #1666Our Odisha Government must take steps to improve our health department by establishing new hi-tech medicals at the different cities of Odisha. Similar manner it must spread awareness about different harmful diseases and about sanitary. Special squad team should be organized to know about the doctors presence in rural government hospitals.
