57% reduction in new HIV infections in last decade

December 1, 2012 Leave a comment

Overall decline in adult new-HIV infections, annual AIDS-related deaths, says NACO report

India has registered an overall decline in the number of adult new-HIV infections and annual AIDS-related deaths across the country, while Odisha, Gujarat, Tamil Nadu and Chandigarh have shown estimated adult HIV prevalence greater than the national prevalence, according to the latest round of HIV sentinel surveillance and estimations conducted by the National AIDS Control Organisation (NACO), which was released by Union Health Minister Ghulam Nabi Azad here on Friday.

The report notes that India has registered 57 per cent reduction in new HIV infections during last decade and 1.5 lakh lives have been saved due to scale up of free antiretroviral therapy (ART) services since 2004. NACO conducts HIV surveillance and estimations at regular intervals and the latest round was completed in 2011. The data generated is then used for estimation of HIV burden and projection of HIV epidemic trends in the country.

“The HIV estimations 2012 indicate an overall continuing reduction in adult HIV prevalence, new HIV infections and AIDS related deaths in India. The adult HIV prevalence declined from an estimated level of 0.41 per cent in 2001 through 0.35 per cent in 2006 to 0.27 per cent in 2011. The decline was registered in high prevalence areas including Andhra Pradesh, Tamil Nadu, Manipur, Karnataka and Nagaland. Also of the 1.6 lakh estimated new infections in 2001 among adults, the six high-prevalence States account for 31 per cent of the new infections,” noted the report.

There has also been a considerable decline in HIV prevalence among female sex workers at the national level and decline has also been achieved among men with same-sex partners(7.41 per cent in 2007 to 4.43 per cent in 2011). Stable trends have been recorded among injecting drug users at the national level (7.23 per cent in 2007 to 7.14 per cent in 2011). Besides, North-East States where declines have been achieved, newer pockets of high HIV prevalence among drug users have emerged over the past few years, in States including Punjab, Chandigarh, Delhi, Mumbai and Bihar. In certain northern States, evidence indicates the possible role of migration in fuelling HIV epidemics. Besides high-risk migrants, long distance truckers also show high levels of vulnerability and form an important part of bridge population, says the report.

The data released also notes that the total number of people living in India with HIV/AIDS is estimated at 21 lakh in 2011, children less than 15-year-old account for seven per cent of all infections, while 86 per cent are in the age group of 15-49 years. Of all HIV infections 39 per cent are among women.

Stating that the evidence shows that India is on track to achieve the global target of ‘zero new infections, zero AIDS-related deaths and zero discrimination,’ NACO in its report states that major challenge for the programme will be to ensure that the treatment requirements are fully met without sacrificing the needs of prevention.

NEET-PG: Reviews from test-takers on Dec 1 Morning Session

December 1, 2012 Leave a comment

Session was average… few repeats from kalam. Few clinical questions. Over all basic knolage of subjects required. Subject wise was very help full . And as expected ratta questions were there.

very tough questions in the morning session of 1st dec……questions were beyond expectation and no repeats from any of the standard books…..very few easy questions which even a non-medico can answer easily icon_confused.gif

I gave the paper today. i just finished my internship in late July… and suffered from virql hepatitis thereafter… so i wasn’t well prepared… but i am an FMG. i had read too much for the FMGE last year…
The paper today was not much difficult as compared to FMGE… Overall not at all difficult(if u look at the gross score). Vey impressed with PROMETRIC and NBE… This is how the arrangement and the paper should be! Rather than asking questions on rare and unheard topics that only geniuses can crack…. OR repeats which any fool mugger can answer correctly… Though there was a lack of clinical q’s, the difficulty level of the paper was easy to moderate… great arrangements at the centr too!
Enjoyed the experience

1st dec morning was very tough..

Gave todays morning session. no repeats from mk/aa . all oneliner questions. God knows what & where from one should study for neetpg. At first look paper seems easy as the topics are common & and heard before. But when you want to click the ans. the main game begins.

today morning paper was ok…. it had a few basic (very basic) questions….. n some named things (dat i ve not heard of , dunno abt others) …… no change in pattern, same basic one liners…

Guys ,just given NEET examine 1st dec,today’s paper was real tough .some 40 percent straight forwards but rest 60 percent not able to cum at def answer and really weird.anyway best of luck for therest of people.

guys ill tell u about todays paper….1)all are one liners except 4-5..2)just max of 3-4 clinical questions 3)8-10 numerical question 4)physiology,pharmac,medicine played important role 5)not a single question from clinical stages of carcinomas 6)very few repeats from past dnb papers max of 5-6 i guess 7)as usual irritating questions played an important role…..overall its an average paper but not definitely easy…..

i gave the exam in today’s morning session……questions were quite tough…….few basic qstns were there which anyone can answer and few were unheard of… of the questions were from simple topics but with twisted options to choose……some questions were very confusing……very few repeats from any other mcq books (subject wise or else)…..cant guess about cut off

ok i cant disclose the questions but there were question on anti psychotics , anticancer both from appendix, que on PHC, cardiac plexus was repeat from past papers. I wish I could discuss the questions there were easily 10-15 direct repeats. And another 10 or so from explanation and appendix.There were questions with numbers in options as usual but believe me in this paper 75-80% is highly attainable.

Today’s paper was average type.some are very easy which any one can answer.2 questions were direct repeats from kalam, some were indirect repeats from aiims.50 questions were very basic in which you may get confused.3-4 questions were data based.some are also don’t waste time in reading questions,. read the explanations, text as much as you can.Overall the paper was good but not easy.

I gave my exam today in d mrng session …today’s subbjects of choice were spm …physiology….pathology …questions were of factual content like integrins…inflammatory mediators …questions regarding imheritence of disease AD or AR or x linked …questions frm anesthesia were easy …paper was definitely not easy …baring weird unheard things others were from basics …

i would suggest read kalam explanations,revise explanations of Mk/AA….paper not very difficult.much below aipgmee level.

for me the paper was tough..few repeats were there,they had covered the basic subjects .confusing questions were there.any way,i wish best of luck to all others.

paper very tricky and largely based on luck
u can attempt 100 question even with ur basic knowledge
abt 50 questions were good
50 were pure ratta
40 were purely on luck
exam based largely on luck
luck playing very gr8 role to decide ur rank and seat
worse possible exam



paper was tough guys….no std topics repeat…

today’s paper was quite tough..most of dem r memory based q..some repeats frm kalam r there but with different options..some weird q on ortho..srgry, pharma and anaesthesia q were easy.. but anatomy q were a bit uncommon..may its my wkness over anatomy..but over all it was a tough q paper than d dnb paper i gave on 17th evening..and i m still confused about ranking best frnd gave his exam on 26 th..and his paper was quite easy dan mine.. dnt know wat is dis raw marks all about.. will dey make d rank on daily percentile basis?or else we r gone.. icon_sad.gif icon_sad.gif

hi i gave today morning sessions…..belive me….150+ shud be scord in dis papr…..qs wer from kalam/mk/n sum from aa…repeats wer few….i guess der wer less terminology …paper was gud….as once who studied prop must score 200+ wis few guesses and luck…..i made mistakes…wid 10 esy qs…..gudluck guys read notes n xplanation rather than only qs….gudluck

1 dec morn VERY VERY TOUGH



100 WITH 200 icon_evil.gif icon_evil.gif icon_evil.gif

I have also gave the exam today but didn’t find many repeats.2 questions were direct repeats from dnb papers & some indirect repeats maximum 10-15.

paper was not easy…only 5-6 repeats from kalam…50%questions..ok achievable…but that not easy…some 8 uestions were value based….over all…tough paper

paper was average not too tough not too easy but more confusing.
chance for making mistake is more with close by options.
8-10 value based questions,few repeats.
if prepared well with mk,aa and kalam can do well but theory is more imp than questions.

to those who claim paper was tough let me tell you what’s a tough paper I gave last AIPGEE 2012, that was a tough paper, 300 que in 3 1/2 hrs, with 1/4th negative marking. Compared to that yesterdays paper was a cake.I’m not saying I’ll score 80% but out of all the students giving the exams many will. I had recalled few questions around 150-155 should be correct. And I have made some really silly mistakes where I changed the ans in last few minutes. If you claim 100 questions were easy/basic out of 240 then how can you say the paper was tough ??? it’s an all India exam without negative marking you cant get 60-75% easy questions !!!! I have recommended all my college friends to go through past Dnb papers before going for exam. sorry if you find it false and misleading please don’t do Kalam the other alternative is all subject wise books as some have recommended, but I cant do that in last 3-4 days if you can do that nothing is better. Go do all subjectwise MCQ books. Best of Luck with that.

ya,me too made silly mistake by changing answer and getting confused b/w similar looking option,though paper was average and 150 is quite acheviable,i feel bad about making such mistake,its like even though you know the answer still marking it wrong.
Now dont know what to do if i dont clear the exam.
my biggest suggestion to those going for exam is the option you marked 1st is the best avoid changing it.

paper wuz not easy !! few topics looked familiar but answers are tricky !! i agree with the LUCK factor…does not require coaching …purely based on ur GK, instinct and luck !!

After success at home, Indian docs take battle against polio abroad

December 1, 2012 Leave a comment

As India celebrates the success of having no new polio case over the past 19 months, Indian doctors are now taking their fight against the scourge to its strongest bastion.

A team of 25 Indian doctors and volunteers — a first-of-its kind single specialty unit — will fly to Nigeria’s capital Abuja on Saturday night to conduct 400 polio corrective surgeries.

Nigeria is currently the global capital of polio. It reported as many as 110 cases this year and is, according to the Global Polio Eradication Initiative, one of the world’s three polio-endemic countries. Pakistan reported 56 cases in 2012, and Afghanistan 31.

The incidence of polio globally declined 99.8 per cent from 3,50,000 cases in over 125 endemic countries in 1988 to only 650 reported cases in 2011. India, which reported 741 cases in 2009 — more than any other country — is now no longer on the World Health Organisation’s list of polio-endemic countries. No case of wild poliovirus has been reported in India since January 13, 2011.

“Health authorities worldwide are worried about the setback to immunisation efforts in polio-endemic countries. WHO has raised an alarm over deteriorating health indices in Nigeria, and called for urgent efforts to reverse the trend. In our small way we decided to respond to the challenge by sending a team of our doctors to help correct deformities related to polio, and create awareness of vaccination,” Panvel-based orthopaedic surgeon Dr Girish Gune, a key Rotarian involved in the Indo-Nigerian Medical Mission programme, told The Indian Express.

Rotary International, which has around 1.2 million members in over 200 countries, has funded the Rs 50 lakh project. Indian doctors are carrying their own equipment to conduct 400 surgeries at two public hospitals inAbuja.

Dr A K Pandey from Ranchi, who is in the team of 19 doctors and six volunteers, said an effort would be made also to reach out to parents of polio-afflicted children.

Panipat anaesthetist Dr Sunil Mehta said the message the fortnight-long surgical workshop hoped to convey was about the need to save future generations from polio.

Doctors from Pune, Mumbai and Chandigarh too are part of the medical mission. Health Minister Ghulam Nabi Azad has applauded the initiative and told the doctors that people and community participation was critical to the success of international and domestic efforts to eradicate polio.

60 new medical colleges to be set-up across India during 2012-17

November 30, 2012 Leave a comment

The union government, in partnership with the state governments, is planning to open over 60 medical colleges across the country during the 12th five-year plan period (2012-17).

The union government will fund 75 per cent of the cost while the respective states will bear the rest 25 per cent.

The union government has responded favourably to a proposal of the Odisha government to open four medical colleges in the state. The medical colleges would have 100 MBBS seats each to begin with.

“We have proposed to convert four district headquarters hospitals into medical colleges under the new plan. We are hopeful the plan will materialize,” said the state health secretary Pradipta Kumar Mahapatra.

The union cabinet on Thursday approved a revised proposal for the construction of a new multi-storeyed Command Hospital Complex in Pune.

The project includes accommodation for essential category staff and Command Medical Dental Centre at Pune at a revised estimated cost of Rs 382.37 crore.

The Command Hospital (Southern Command) at Pune is a 1,047-bedded referral hospital, which provides tertiary level medical care in various specialities and super-specialities to serving personnel of the armed forces, ex-servicemen, their families and civilians.

The hospital is affiliated to the Armed Forces Medical College, Pune, for teaching and training of both undergraduate and postgraduate students.

The project, which was originally approved by the cabinet in October 2008 at an estimated cost of Rs 270.77 crore, will be completed by November 2016.
