NATIONAL MASS DEWORMING PROGRAMME IN DELHI

National Mass Deworming Programme In Delhi 

(Deworming day 10th Feb 2017, August 2017 )

1.      Background:

  • Soil Transmitted Helminthes (STH): affects  1/3rd of the world’s population
  • Untreated, the infection is long-term and chronic
  • STH Negatively affects: health, nutrition, cognitive development, learning and school attendance.
  • WHO  estimates that India has the highest burden of STH in the world with 600 Million children estimated to be at risk of STH
  • Almost 7 out of 10 children b/w 6 months to 5 years are anemic
  • Delhi has moderate STH prevalence of 28%.

 

2.      Govt. of India Policy on the STH:

  • GOI Launched National Mass Deworming Programme under National Health Mission in Feb 2015 on a fixed day approach across all States and Union Territories

·         Objectives: Deworm all children (boys and girls) aged 1-19 years (enrolled and non-enrolled) at schools and anganwadi centre’s for improved child health, nutritional status, access to education, and quality of life.

·         As a National Policy, all target population are administered a single dose of Albendazole (400 mg) chewable tablet (supplied by WHO/GOI) simultaneously on the same day i.e. 10.2.17 (National Deworming Day). Those left out on National Deworming Day will be administered medicine on 15.02.17 (Mop Up Day). Dose is half tablet for children < 2 years and full tablet for >= 2 years.

  • In moderate - high STH prevalence states like Delhi the Deworming is done biannually whereas in moderate and low STH prevalence states it is done once annually.

 3.      Benefits Of Annual Mass Deworming

·         School & Anganwadi based Annual Mass De-worming is a simple, safe and cost-effective solution to improve the health and education of millions of children.

·         Execution of the programme at mass scale is possible by leveraging the existing educational infrastructure and training teachers to deliver De- worming medication.

·         Deworming targets one of the most common, long-term Soil Transmitted Helminthes (STH) infections of children

·         Deworming improves health outcomes- well being, reduces risk of stunting/ anemia,   improves nutrition, height & weight

·         Deworming contributes to Education for All-  Improves Learning ability, Cognitive functions, and school attendance

·         Deworming in schools reduces total burden of STH by 70% in the community - benefitting the untreated.
