Utilization Of Preventive And Curative Services In A Semi- Urban Area In Tamilnadu
M Kachirayan, S Radhakrishna, V Selvaraj, Veena Pushparaj, N Ramalingam
July-September 1988, 13(3):118-126
Using a cluster sampling procedure, 2,248 semi- urban households comprising of 10,326 persons were chosen and surveyed to determine the extent of utilization of curative and preventive health services. Each household was visited by graduate interviewers on two occasions, a fortnight apart, and information collected over a reference period of 4 weeks. In all, 3,324 episodes were reported. A physician was consulted and treatment taken for 56.5 per cent of the episodes, Self- treatment or treatment on the advice of a lay person was resorted to for 22.7 per cent. For the remaining 20.8 per cent, no action was taken. Immunization coverage in children under 5 years was very poor, namely, 26 per cent for DPT and 15 per cent for OPV. Only a third of the pregnant women had visited a prenatal clinic during the reference period. Family planning, invariably sterilization, was practiced by 20 per cent of the eligible couples. The health utilization practices in this area are contrasted with those in nearby Madras City, and other urban areas, and the implications are discussed.

July-September 1988, 13(3):127-130
Various strategies for immunization of children were simultaneously tried in different populations of Meerut City to evolve a suitable strategy for universal coverage of immunization with or without the involvement of permanently posted health workers. The study revealed that immunization can not be effective without the involvement of regular health workers. They are the main force for follow up to ensure complete coverage of schedule of immunization so as to prevent dropouts from immunization drive.

A Study On Plasmodium Falciparum Resurgence In Shankergarh Development Block Of District Allahabad
P.L Joshi, M Bhattacharya, S Sharma, B Raj
July-September 1988, 13(3):112-117
Shankergarh block of Allahabad district is endemic for falciparum malaria. A study of the malaria positive cases from 1980-1985 revealed a rising trend for the P. falciparum cases, the increase being from 118 in 1980 to 173 in 1985. The regression of slide positivity rate on year showed a linear trend with a predicted value of 1.80 for the year 1988. The malaria surveillance machinery was observed to be at fault because more than 57% of the positive slides were reported from amongst those obtained from the passive agencies compared to 18% from amongst those collected by the active surveillance workers. The monthly collection of blood slides was also observed to be below the target figure of 1% per month, during the months of December to June. Besides, untimely institution of radical treatment and missing out of the 12.1% confirmed cases of falciparum malaria for radical treatment has led to the development of an infectious pool in the community, which can be only be reduced or eliminated by adequate timely surveillance and remedial measures.
