    Odisha: first at death-rate, last at birth-rate in India

    As per the latest survey and report of Govt. of India, Odisha is last at birth-rate and first in death-rate as compared to other states of India. It is really matter of concern for us, as the budget prepared for health matters was not so well-prepared, which is discussed among well-known ministers of Odisha. Due to malnutrition the child & mother death-rate is excessively increasing in Odisha. As per the report said, where the national death-rate is 7.2%, Odisha's death-rate is 8.6%, which is highest among other states. More than 70% patients were belong to malaria, leprosy, diarrhea, jaundice and other chronic diseases. The average life-span of a male is 58.7 yr whereas of female is 59.6 yr. which is very less as compared to last 10 year's. Discuss, what preventive methods should be implemented to eradicate this problem and lessen the death-rate in Odisha.

    Yes, 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.
    With regards,

    Really 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

    Our 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.
