India’s 1st National Deworming Day Launched

India launched its 1st Deworming Day on 10th February. It was launched by The Ministry Of Health & Family Welfare to combat parasitic worm infections among preschool and school age children across India. 

Jagat Prakash Nadda, Union Minister for Health & Family Welfare inaugurated the Deworming national programme, in Jaipur, Rajasthan, together with Rajasthan Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje and Rajendra Rathore, Minister for Health & Family Welfare, Government of Rajasthan, in the presence of senior officials from the Central and State Government.

National Deworming Day is a groundbreaking initiative focused on reducing the threat of parasitic worm infections, a widespread health issue affecting over 241 million children in India alone. India has the highest burden of soil transmitted parasitic worms in the world. Parasitic worms in children interfere with nutrient uptake, and can contribute to anemia​, malnourishment​, and impaired mental and physical development. 

So the Government of India has launched a fixed one-day school-based program to ensure intensive deworming coverage and targeted outreach. Vastly, high quality, based deworming programme for children of pre-school and school age children in India will dramatically reduce the harm caused by parasitic worm infections in millions of children in India.  GOI is also undertaken the community based health workers and other local institutions.
