Abstract: The year started with IAP Presidents' address to the National Conference at Mumbai; and the first and the foremost priority under IAP Vision 2007 was rightly accorded to the "Child Survival". UNICEF statistics on child mortality have shown that every year, almost 10.5 million children die before their fifth birthday; i.e., 30,000 children every day! Half of the deaths in under 5 children can be directly attributed to just 5 diseases-pneumonia, diarrhoea, malaria, measles and AIDS. These deaths can be prevented by low-cost prevention and treatment measures such as exclusive breastfeeding, rational antibiotic therapy for acute respiratory infections, oral rehydration for diarrhoea, immunization, and appropriate prevention and treatment of malaria. Malnutrition also contributes to over half these deaths, thus it is imperative to ensure proper nutrition as a key strategy in child survival. Under IAP Vision 2007, the Academy has initiated a series of nationwide 68 workshops on Child survival, spread across 16 EAG (Empowered Action Group) States. In each workshop, 50 practitioners of child health are to be trained. Members of the Academy have responded over overwhelmingly in all the workshops held so far. Movement is gaining momentum amongst the academy members in non EAG states. (excerpt)
