You know more about AIDS than your leadersAhmedabad: If you have been watching HIV awareness advertisements on TV or in public places, you are likely to be better informed about the deadly disease than your social, political and religious leaders.
This is the disconcerting discovery made by Amar Vyas, a social worker and official of BJ Medical Colleges department of community medicine, who conducted a study on the level of awareness about the disease in different sections of society. The study was undertaken as part of his Ph.D. thesis.
The aim of Vyass study was to learn about the attitude, knowledge and behaviour of religious, social and political leaders towards the disease. Talking about his findings, he said that the state and Union governments, as also some NGOs, had been working to spread awareness about the disease in an effort to prevent its spread. But there is very little public participation in their efforts. Hence, I wanted to study the level of awareness about HIV-AIDs among social, political and religious leaders who have great influence on society. These leaders can influence peoples attitude towards patients of the disease, Vyas said.
He added that he had hoped that the study would help him seek the assistance of these leaders in spreading awareness about the deadly disease with the support of the government or the NGOs. Vyas study was limited to leaders of Mehsana district. He met and talked to around 150 leaders from different social, religious and political backgrounds. I talked to a wide range of political leaders — from village sarpanchs, taluka and district panchayat members, to MLAs and MPs. The social leaders I talked to include leaders from different communities (such as Patel, Brahmin and Chaudhary), union leaders and leaders of cooperatives in different sectors, Vyas said.
Narmada case: VS panel confronts angry fatherAhmedabad: A day after media reports of the goof-up in sending a letter 24 hours late, the members of the inquiry committee probing the death of Narmada Parmar went to Prahlad Paramars house in Juna Vadaj area on Thursday to register his official statement which he would have given at VS Hospital on Tuesday, had the letter reached him on time. However, they returned empty handed, as Parmar refused to give his statement.Parmar had received a letter sent by the committee in which he was asked to remain present at VS Hospital at 3:30 pm on Tuesday to give his statement to the committee. However, the letter was delivered to him on Wednesday afternoon, 24 hours after the deadline.The letter, dated November 28, was sent by the three-member inquiry committee which sits at Civil Hospital. However, the stamp from Ellisbridge post office indicates that the letter was posted at 11:30 am on November 29.
The committee, comprising additional superintendent of Civil Hospital, Dr MF Shaikh, head of the gynaecology department at BJ Medical College Dr Malini Desai and anaesthesiology professor, Dr Shailesh Shah, personally went to apologise to Parmar and asked him to register the statement, which he had missed due to the delayed letter.
However, Parmar asked them to clarify the delay in sending the letter to him. In his reply, Dr Shaikh assured him of action against the person who posted the letter. I specifically ordered it to be delivered by hand, not by post. I am unaware about the individual responsible, but I will put my remarks in the report about the same, said Dr Shaikh in a bid to console Parmar.
But Parmar was in no mood to let go and alleged that the committee was not doing enough to probe the deaths of his son Hasmukh and his daughter-in-law Narmada. Despite repeated requests by the committee members, Parmar did not budge and refused to give his statement. Forgive me for my harsh words, but we dont trust you. Some days back, two security personnel of VS Hospital approached me posing as members of my community. They had come here to spy on me. You may write whatever you want in your report, but I will not give my statement, said Parmar to the committee members.
Supporting his view, members of the Jan Sangharsh Manch (JSM) also alleged that the committee was working in favour of the accused doctors.
We will only cooperate if an independent member, be it an IPS officer or an outside doctor, is included in the committee, said Jignesh Mewani, a member of JSM.
