Dr Prakash Doke
Ex-Director of Public Health Department, Governmen
Immunization is the best way to prevent diseases and Indradhanush programme is laudable. Those districts that have poor vaccination record should be on high priority. The initiative to eradicate Pneumonia and Whooping Cough from Uttar Pradesh, Rajasthan, Bihar and Madhya Pradesh is a good step. However, the cutting of budget allocation in this sector will hamper health care facilities.
