From the Director’s Desk

All India Institute of Hygiene & Public Health, Kolkata is celebrating its 83rd Foundation Day. Eighty-two years is long time in the journey an Institution, past can never be put aside but one cannot remain occupied with it. Present has to be faced with complete sincerity and courage. Therefore, this year in July, we devoted three full days to analyse our strength and weaknesses and chalk-out our Strategic Action Plan for reorienting and strengthening the Institute. In this long journey, many people have contributed to the cause of Public Health through this Institute. In the process, one generation has passed the baton to another to ensure continuity as well as development. The faculty, the staff, the students and the communities in our contact have contributed in various ways to promote our role in Public Health. We need to rededicate our efforts to make our services and support activities more effective at the same time keep a focus on developmental activities. The command of the Institute is going to be passed to a new incumbent before the next Annual Day Celebration. I am sure that the new incumbent will safeguard our inherited values and take the Institute to the new height. I am grateful to the faculty, the staff and the students who have contributed significantly to the growth of the Institute and take this opportunity to thanks them and wish all success to the Institute in its all future endeavours.

Epidemiology

"

Introduction

The department of Epidemiology was established along with the formation of the Institute in 1932. The department has played significant role in the development of the discipline of epidemiology and of community health in a broader sense. The department has been pioneer in carrying out General Health Survey in the population of its rural field practice area in Singur. It had been involved in identifying the problem of Arsenicosis as a major public health problem in the country. It has also been involved in carrying out many surveys. Lal RB. Roy SC conducted investigation of epidemic dropsy in 1930. The work was done on Chronic arsenic toxicity from drinking tube well water in rural West Bengal in 1980s. The Sonagachi Project was launched in 1992 by the Department in Sonagachi red light area of Kolkata which has evolved into a multi-faceted community effort to empower sex workers (particularly women) in ways that go beyond HIV prevention. The Sonagachi Project has been identified as a World Health Organization (WHO) model. The department has worked as the nodal agency in monitoring and supervision of HIV sentinel surveillance in West Bengal and North Eastern States of India. It is also a nodal department for IDSP (TOT) and FETP in North Eastern States and West Bengal. The Department practices epidemiology as a broad scientific discipline, addressing the occurrence of disease and the distribution of health status in a population. By integrating causal concepts at the molecular, cellular, clinical, and social-environmental levels, faculty of this department work to maintain an intellectual environment that facilitates the integration of biological, social, and analytic approaches. Within such an environment, faculty and students are able to develop the breadth of knowledge necessary to appreciate fully the complexities of the bio-social systems that we seek to understand and modify. The department strives to better understand the burden and causes of health problems in human populations, and to make changes that decrease risk and improve health. The Mission of the Department of Epidemiology at AIIH&PH is to contribute to the reduction of the disease burden in human population through research, education, and service. The research mission is met by study into the risk of disease associated with inherent, acquired, social, or environmental factors, and the development and application of methods to alleviate that risk. These methods range from primary prevention through service provision to modification of social systems. Faculty and students

35 pursue this research mission through research projects conducted both by individuals and by multi-disciplinary teams. The educational mission includes the training of students to generate and interpret epidemiologic information, to synthesize it with other information, and to apply it to reduce the disease burden. Graduates from the Department’s research and training programs are equipped to develop their careers as independent researchers and health managers, and all Departmental graduates are equipped to take up leadership positions in public and private agencies involved with health care or research.

Occupational Health

"

Introduction

After independence scarcity of trained manpower in the field of Occupational and Industrial Health was felt. To fill in this vacuum the Department was established in the year 1949 and DIH (Diploma in Industrial Health) was started in the Institute in the year 1951. Since then AIIH&PH has been continuously supplying well trained, knowledgeable and competent medical officers to Indian industries. Today medical doctors with DIH qualifications from AIIH&PH are doing excellent work in innumerable industries: large and small, public and private, coal, cement, mines, oil exploration, paint, ports, airports, mines, nuclear establishments, railways etc. Our students get excellent jobs in various industries in this country.

" ; o

; o

"

Teaching Activities Regular Courses Conducted: DIH (Diploma in Industrial Health) Course conducted by this department has been recently suspended. The admissions are likely to start shortly. Short Courses/Trainings Conducted: A workshop on Occupational Health and Safety was organised for the doctors and senior managers at the West Bengal Power Development Corporation Ltd in Salt Lake, Kolkata on 23.07.2014.

New Initiatives

A proposal for a new course - DOH (Diploma in Occupational Health) has already been sent to the DGHS. Once the proposal is accepted, this will be the first course of the country in the field of Occupational Health covering both industrial and non-industrial sectors. DOH will be a two-year, full time, post-graduate medical diploma course open to medical graduates with recognized MBBS qualification.

"

MOU

An MOU has been drafted for collaboration in research and training in the field of Occupational Health between the Regional Occupational Health Centre (East), which is under ICMR and our Institute. The MOU is likely to be signed in December, 2014.

Statistics

"

Introduction

Ever since its inception, the All India Institute of Hygiene & Public Health has been aware of the importance of statistics in public health and as such the department of Vital Statistics & Epidemiology was one of the departments to be established in the beginning. Increasing need of application of bio-metric methods in analysing data – both research and routine, required biostatics to be separated from the Epidemiology and become a separate department, the Department of Statistics (DOS). The Department of Statistics (DOS) in All India Institute of Hygiene & Public Health came into existence in the early 1960s. A special course viz. Diploma in Health Statistics (DHS) commenced under the Department in the year 1966 with participation of students from India and abroad. This Department has been engaged in imparting training on statistical tools and methodologies to the students of various postgraduate degree and diploma courses run by the Institute and supporting statistical surveys, special studies and research activities undertaken by the Institute. DOS also has been assisting the students and researchers of this Institute in planning and designing of surveys on public health and related data analysis. It has been undertaking data processing, tabulation and preparation of reports on its in-house computer systems. In the absence of a Co-ordination Wing in the Institute, the department has assumed the role of a coordinator on various issues including planning, development and monitoring on specific issues. Moreover, it has been working as IT Wing of the Institute and as such taking care of the LAN, WAN, NKN Connectivity, Website Development, Maintenance and Updation, etc. Prof. P.V. Sukhatme, the noted statistician in whose name there is Prof. P.V. Shukhatme Award for “Outstanding and Meritorious Research Work in Statistics”, served the Institute in 1939-40. In 1944-45, the first general health survey was conducted in the country by the Institute in 68 villages of West Bengal under its service jurisdiction. Dr. K.K. Mathen, Professor of the Department of Statistics in the Institute made several notable contributions which included the technical report on “sampling methods in morbidity surveys and public health” under the aegis of WHO in 1966 and “development of statistical test for infectious diseases”. Prof. C. Chandrasekaran, the well-known demographer and statistician, served the Institute from 1941 to 1948 and from 1954 to 1958. Chandra-

87 Deming formula jointly developed by him with W. E. Deming in 1949 for estimating the number of vital events by comparing results from two different systems is still used. Prof. Chandrasekaran and Prof. Mathen had developed a deep association with the United Nations, W.H.O., etc. for significant contributions in their field of expertise. The first comprehensive survey instruments for a field survey on public health issues were developed by the Department in 1966.

Farakka Barrage Project Hospital

"

Background

Farakka Barrage Project Hospital, Farakka, Dist. Murshidabad, West Bengal is a 60 bedded hospital. It was under the control of the Ministry of Water Resources primarily to cater to the general health problems of the Project employees, and the employees of the central government organisations working on the project. It also covered the nearby security personnel (CISF), postal, railway employee, etc. for the health services. It is located in the Farakka Block under the Jangipur Subdivision about 313 kms north of Kolkata with the Police Station and market nearby. Total covered area, including the Indoor, OPD etc. is 2141.24 sq. m. Total land area in the Hospital premises is 17245.00 sq. m. Over the time, due to various factors, including shifting of beneficiaries to other places after completion of the project, the hospital got restricted to providing OPD and Emergency Services only. Ministry of Health and Family Welfare took an active interest to upgrade this hospital. Consequent upon signing of a Memorandum of Understanding between the MOHFW and MOWR on 17.01.2014, All India Institute of Hygiene and Public Health has taken over the administrative control of this hospital from the office of General Manager, FB Project. A Central Inspection Team comprising of four specialist doctors was deputed by DGHS, MOHFW to inspect the hospital and give suggestions for its upgradation. The Central Team has recommended to develop the hospital as a 60 bedded basic general hospital with the availability of specialists in multiple disciplines. Its status will be above the block level (CHC) hospital, but below the district hospital. ¾

Present facility and services:

Presently, General OPD Service,

24 hrs. Emergency Services, Referral Services and Ambulance Service are provided. No indoor service is available due to lack of infrastructure. During the year 21284 OPD cases and 82 emergency cases were attended and various lab-tests were also conducted.

"

Proposed Hospital Facilities

The proposal includes 60 bedded basic general hospital on the line of the suggestions given by the Central Inspection Team deputed by MOH&FW with the availability of specialists in the disciplines of Medicine, Surgery, Paediatrics, Anaesthesia, Gynae-Obstetrics, Radiology, Pathology,

127

Ophthalmology, Public Health, etc. HSCC has been contacted for the formulation of DPR as well as SFC.
