Minister warns stern action on sales of spurious drugs

Minister warns stern action on sales of spurious drugs

Health Minister M Subramaniam warned stern action on sales of spurious drugs. 
After inaugurating hemoglobinopathi and leprosy awareness programmes at Thalavadi on Tuesday, he said 136 announcements related to his department were made in the budget and they would be fulfilled before next budget. One of the most important announcements is holding of hemoglobinopathi disorder detection programme among tribals in hill areas. 

So,  it was launched in Hasaur village in Thalavadi  and later in Kanyakumari, Dindigul and Krishnagiri districts. The anaemia of father and pregnant mother would hit the baby. So, health staff would visit such tribals houses to attend the problem. 

Similarly,  ORS powder would be supplied to check diarrohea among children in the hill areas. Door to door campaign would also be started to detect leprosy in hill areas. 

The Collector introduced a scheme named Punnagai in Bargur hill area under which online medical consultation were arranged. After getting CM's permission  the scheme would be expanded to all hill areas of the state. 

The Thalavadi GH would get a facility to perform autopsy as people of the area face some legal problems by taking body to the Sathy GH or to the GH in Karnataka and also get needy facilities. The ovum donation was approved by law.

 It could be collected from women in the age group of 21 to 35 only one time. But, it was collected 6 times from a 16 year old girl in 4 hospitals in TN and 2 hospitals in Tirupathi and Thiruvandapuram. So, action has been taken on the hospitals violating the norms. 

A circular on the norms of artificial reproduction technology would soon be sent all over the state, he added.
