PEDIATRICS

PURPOSE

“The UN estimates that 2.1 million Indian children die before reaching the age of 5 every year – four every minute – mostly from preventable illnesses such as diarrhea, typhoid, malaria, measles and pneumonia. Every day, 1,000 Indian children die because of diarrhea alone.”

Child health program in india.

GUIDANCE & COUNSELING :

  • Infant to 9 month child health counselling :
  • Breastfeeding beyond 6 months: Internationally agreed recommendations for optimal feeding of infants and young children advocate exclusive breastfeeding for the first six months of life, followed by complementary feeding and continued breastfeeding for up to two years or beyond. From 6 months, infants need additional foods alongside continued breastfeeding. This is termed complementary feeding because the aim is to give other foods and drinks to ‘complement’, as in ‘make complete’, the nutrients provided by human milk. Appropriate CF is an advocacy issue because of lack of understanding and misinformation through the promotion of commercially produced follow-up and growing up milks.
  • 9 Month to early childhood stage :
  • Early childhood intervention is a support system for children with developmental disabilities or delays and their families.
  • School age children :
  • School health services are services from medical, teaching and other professionals applied in or out of school to improve the health and well-being of children and in some cases whole families. These services have been developed in different ways around the globe but the fundamentals are constant: the early detection, correction, prevention or amelioration of disease, disability and abuse from which school aged children can suffer.
