A Comparative Study Of Some Of The Epidemiologic Characteristics Of The Acceptors Of Vasectomy And Tubectomy In An Industrial Hospital
R.K Samal, P.K Mukherjee
January-March 1985, 10(1):5-10
The characteristics of 93 couples opting for vasectomy or tubectomy in an industrial hospital after an initial period of intensive health education activities are analysed and compared. The results indicate that the husbands in the vasectomy group were more educated, placed in better job categories and were earning more in comparison to those in the tubectomy group. The wives in the vasectomy group were also more educated. It was also observed that the couples opting for vasectomy belonged to older age groups but were having fewer number of living children in comparison to the couples opting for tubectomy. The hypothesis that couples from higher socio-economic strata might be tending to accept vasectomy as the method of choice in preference to tubectomy and its subsequent policy implications are discussed.

Medical Schools And Health For All
M.M Kapur
January-March 1985, 10(1):39-43
Undergraduate medical education in this country still emulates the pattern that has been evolved in the West. Timely, fundamental reorientation in health services and health manpower education is now mandatory if improvement in health parameters are to be achieved by the end of this century. India with its rural located population has its task identified for itself. Primary Health Care provides an excellent edifice around which health manpower and service developments can be planned. Medical Education is no longer a departmental function and needs to be directed towards task oriented, competency based education using delivery of primary health care as the goal. This calls for a discipline of Primary Care within Medical Colleges. This approach can be introduced on experimental scale in the first instance. Preparation of Model training manuals should be undertaken.
