Can Trains-turned-hospitals Cure Rural India's Health Care Woes?
http://online.wsj.com/article/SB127009776884170663.html?mod=WSJ_latestheadlines

INDIA NEWSAPRIL 1, 2010, 1:04 A.M. ET

Grateful patients bearing small bags of fruit and vegetables are
common along the railway platforms where Lifeline Express -- the
world's first hospital on rails -- halts for three-week camps across
rural India. So when a distraught parent dropped a bundle into Zelma
Lazarus's lap at one of the stations and begged her to help his son
who had lost his arms in a threshing machine accident, the CEO of
Impact India, the foundation that created Lifeline, took it in stride
-- until she opened the bag and found the severed limbs.

"The rural poor often slip through the gaps in the public health
system," Lazarus says. "Lifeline Express is like a magic train to
them, and they expect us to perform miracles." In this particular
case, the "magic train" couldn't help, but Impact India could: The
foundation brought the boy to Mumbai, where he was fitted with a pair
of artificial limbs.

The mission of Lifeline Express is to vanquish avoidable blindness,
deafness and physical handicaps. After 19 years and nearly 600,000
surgeries, the train and its 100,000 volunteers have not even
scratched the surface of disability in India. Impact India's chairman,
A. H. Tobaccowala, estimates that the train has reached less than 10%
of the population in need of medical attention.

When the Impact Foundation was set up in 1981 by Sir John Wilson -- a
prominent British supporter of the disabled who himself was blinded in
a laboratory accident at school -- three United Nations agencies threw
their weight behind the organization, with the understanding that it
would be run as a public-private partnership. Accordingly, Impact
India was founded in 1983 with managerial and technical support from
the Tata Group conglomerate. Tobaccowala and Lazarus, who were
respectively chairman and general manager of corporate affairs at a
Tata Group company called Voltas, were seconded to the new foundation
and have been there since.

Making Tracks

Impact India initially focused on immunization and prevention of
diseases such as polio and malaria. In 1989, it started "Cure on
Wheels," a van that traveled around the hinterland, dispensing medical
and surgical treatment to people beyond the reach of the state-funded
basic health service. But the care the van was able to provide was
still too little and, often, too late. Impact wanted to extend medical
services to larger numbers of people in even more remote parts of the
country. The challenge, however, was that sterile facilities for the
surgeries and post-operating recovery were needed, while procedures
had to be consistently replicable across the country. This was clearly
a task beyond what a van could do. So Impact turned to India's railway
system -- all 109,000 kilometers (68,000 miles) of it.

Three old, wooden carriages were donated by Indian Railways and
renovated to the foundation's specifications. An air-conditioned
operating theater with three adjustable tables, a diagnostic center, a
sterilization chamber and a post-operative recovery room were
installed in one carriage. The other two contained the living
quarters, pantry, office and pathology lab. Funding for the overhaul
came from international charities, such as the Ford Foundation, USAID
and Impact UK. On July 16, 1991, Lifeline Express rolled away from
Mumbai to Khalari in Bihar state, then the smallest railway station in
India.

The present Lifeline Express has five customized carriages that were
unveiled in 2007. Indian Railways once again provided the carriages,
and Impact UK funded their overhaul. The new train has state-of-the-
art facilities, including an auditorium, public announcement system
and closed-circuit cameras. There is also a second, self-contained,
two-table operating theater, which can be detached from the rest of
the train and function as a standalone unit in the event of a
disaster.

The train may be new, but the procedures have remained much the same
since the early days. Lasting three to four weeks, each project serves
nearly 5,000 people and relies on community participation. At every
stop, local villages and non-governmental organizations offer various
assistance, from food and laundry services to crowd control (polite
patients waiting in line and disorderly mobs are equally common) to
finding accommodations for post-operative patients and family who
accompany them.

The train has only a few permanent staffers, such as the cook, a
technician in charge of maintaining the pathology lab and computers,
an operating theater assistant and a driver. All medical specialists
-- surgeons, doctors, nurses, anesthetists -- are volunteers,
providing the equivalent of US$80,000 of donated time for every
project. At any given moment, a 20-person medical team is on the
train, working 15 hours a day.

Remote Control

Each project costs the foundation about $65,000. Typically, the
sponsor -- generally companies such as Tata and Mahindra & Mahindra or
state governments -- decides the location of the camp. Impact India's
only condition is that it must be in a suitably remote location.
Project work starts a month before the train reaches the station. The
Lifeline team liaises with the district administration to make sure
all the red tape -- permits and so forth -- and publicity are dealt
with before the train arrives. Town criers, flyers, clowns on stilts
and poster-draped elephants spread the news about the train and urge
people to register at the nearest community welfare center or primary
health center. Once selected, patients are called to a local school or
marriage hall, which serves as a makeshift waiting room.

The train treats "avoidable disabilities," which means the focus is on
ear and eye ailments, as well as orthopedic and facial handicaps, such
as illnesses caused by polio and cleft palates. Typically, each
specialty is run as a week-long camp. Other ailments are also
examined. Last year, a British clinic sponsored a dental unit on the
train and volunteered its services. Neurosurgeons have begun treating
epilepsy, while counseling superstitious, often illiterate villagers
about why the afflicted are not cursed or possessed by evil spirits.

Perhaps the greatest advantage Lifeline Express has over other health
services for the poor is its ability to reach "the doorstep of the
patient," says G. Chandrasekhar, medical director of K.B.H. Bachooali
Charitable Ophthalmic & ENT Hospital in Mumbai. "My hospital also
performs free surgeries, but patients have to reach here. Lifeline
Express takes me to the patient." Chandrasekhar has volunteered as an
ophthalmic surgeon for the train in 2005 and 2007, and says he's
waiting to be called again.

Three Lifeline Express trains now operate in China and Zimbabwe, while
hospital river boats based on the India model have been set up to tend
to patients in Bangladesh and Cambodia. Lifeline has inspired other
projects in India, too. In 2007, the government launched Red Ribbon
Express to increase awareness of HIV and AIDS, and Science Express to
promote science among students.

Tobaccowala may regret the large numbers that remain untreated, but
there is a consolation: The country's government wouldn't have reached
even a small fraction of the people helped by Lifeline Express.
India's public health system is dangerously overstretched and large
parts of the country have limited or no access to basic medical care.
Government spending on health, at 3% of total its budget, is among the
lowest in the world. There is one doctor to every 870 people.

A recent government report notes that the low number of trained
medical professionals in India has led to a shortage of one million
nurses, 600,000 doctors and 200,000 oral surgeons. The scarcity is
especially pronounced in rural areas. "Many of the people we treat
have never been to a doctor before," Lazarus says. "People are so
desperate for medical treatment they lie on the tracks to stop the
train from leaving."

Seeking Sustainability

Despite all this, Lazarus says she wishes that the train would become
defunct. Why? "The train arrives at the platform, treats as many
people as it can and then leaves. It is not a sustainable solution for
these people's health care needs. Once that is attained, there will be
no need for a Lifeline Express." To address health care needs over the
longer term, Impact India started an initiative in 2005 in Maharashtra
state. The grassroots program aims to reduce disability by improving
community health and neonatal and maternal care by focusing on
malnutrition, sanitation, hygiene and family planning. To get the
message across, mobile clinics are equipped with LCD screens showing
film clips about health-related issues, while a local art form called
Warli painting is used on posters, clothing, walls and even water pots
to spread the word.

"Hospitals are already overworked treating patients. They can't focus
on prevention and awareness," says G.V. Rao, country director of Orbis
India, a blindness-prevention nonprofit. "That can be done by trains
and planes to draw attention to these preventable and easily treated
ailments." Orbis's Flying Eye Hospital travels the world with
volunteer surgeons, who treat patients and train local specialists in
eye care. In India, Rao says, Orbis has screened more than 3.5 million
children over the past eight years, treated nearly 600,000 people and
performed more than 60,000 surgeries. "Policy-level changes are
needed," Rao says. "Children should be screened for basic health
issues during school enrollment. Diet and nutrition issues should also
be tackled at the primary level."

For India's rural poor, prevention is essential because the chance for
a cure may never arrive. More than budgetary support, it requires an
approach to rural health care emphasizing nutrition and immunization.
Until that happens, there will always be offerings of fruit and
flowers for the doctors on board Lifeline Express.

Int. Parliamentarians meeting in Bangkok

 

Youth participation in the democratic process

More than 600 parliamentarians from 124 countries, among them 35 Speakers of Parliament, attending the 122nd Assembly of the Inter-Parliamentary Union (IPU) closed their meeting in Bangkok, Thailand on April 1, 2010 by adopting four key resolutions.

 

The fourth resolution invites parliaments, if they have not yet done so, to set up specialized bodies to streamline youth issues throughout parliament's work and to monitor the fulfilment of their government's obligations under the Convention of the Right of the Child to ensure children's right to be heard and express their views freely and without discrimination.

 

States, parliaments, legislators, political parties, the IPU and youth organizations are invited to encourage and promote the initiative, enterprise and creativity of young people.

 

The resolution also calls on the IPU and parliaments, youth organizations and others to strengthen efforts aimed at achieving appropriate representation and participation of youth in decision-making bodies, bearing in mind that girls, boys, young women and young men are all entitled to the same rights.

 

It also calls on Parliaments to ensure that young people with disabilities and those who are socially and economically disadvantaged are offered equal opportunities to participate fully in society.

 

Global fight against organized crime and terrorism

        In a another resolution on cooperation and shared responsibility in the global fight against organized crime, in particular drug, illegal arms and human trafficking, and cross border terrorism, the Assembly invited the United Nations to convene an international conference to analyze the impact of new forms of terrorism and determine whether national legislation meets international humanitarian and human rights standards.

 

The resolution also urges parliaments to mainstream gender equality concerns into all legislation to ensure that women and children  are protected from abuse and that they are provided with legal, medical and other forms of assistances.

 

South-South and triangular cooperation to accelerating achievement of MDGs

           A resolution was adopted on the role of parliaments in developing South-South and triangular cooperation with a view to accelerating achievement of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). It invites southern and northern parliaments and governments to support and develop South-South and triangular cooperation and to align their South-South cooperation agenda with the MDGs. It also urges southern country parliaments and governments to see to it that the funds allocated to MDG-related programmes and sectors are effectively used for the targeted programmes.

Dear friends,
The Indian government wants to sell out our safety to the profit of US companies, removing their responsibility for nuclear accidents. Let's raise our voices before the law proposal goes for a vote in the next few days -- sign the petition below:



The Government of India is trying to introduce a bill which would remove responsibility for any nuclear accidents caused by US corporations in India.

In other words: Indian tax payers would be paying for the costs of any nuclear accident, including clean-up and compensation of victims, while the company responsible for the disaster will only pay a small fine.

Growing pressure from civil society has already led the government to postpone the bill, but they will still try to pass it in the next parliamentary session. Now's the time to pressure the PM to drop this bill. Click below to sign -- our signatures will be faxed to Dr. Manmohan Singh's office:

The Indian government wants tosell out our safety to the profit of US companies, removing their responsibility for nuclear accidents. Let's raise our voices before the law proposal goes for a vote in the next few days -- sign the petition below: 


This bill provides a horrible incentive for US companies to cut costs on nuclear safety. It's easy to take profits without taking responsibility – let's not allow the Indian government to bargain our safety for a bad deal.

The victims of the Bhopal gas tragedy are still struggling to get their due 25 years later. We cannot let the government appease American corporate interests to the disadvantage of regular Indians. Our safety is being put on the line for the economic profit of a few.

DR Congo Rebel Group Kills 321
Lord's Resistance Army Kidnaps 250 Civilians, 80 Children

 In a remote area of northeastern Democratic Republic of Congo, one of Africa's most notorious armed groups – the Lord's Resistance Army (LRA) – brutally attacked civilians, killing at least 321 people with machetes, axes, and heavy wooden sticks. Another 250 civilians, including at least 80 children, were abducted and led away into the wilderness.

A new Human Rights Watch report is the first detailed documentation of the massacre, which happened in December. Despite the enormous death toll, the LRA attack was initially unreported, in part because the region is so remote there are no telephones, electricity, or roads but also because few paid attention when reports about the killings began to surface.

Publicly, the governments of Uganda and Congo maintain that the LRA, a Ugandan rebel group, is no longer a serious threat as a result of joint military operations by their armies. But this massacre illustrates that the LRA's ability to attack civilians remains intact.

The United Nations is under pressure from the Congolese government to remove some of its peacekeeping forces from Congo. But considering the scope of the rampage, the Ugandan and Congolese governments, together with UN peacekeepers, should develop a more effective strategy to tackle the LRA threat and to apprehend its leaders – three of whom are already sought on arrest warrants from the International Criminal Court.

US Immigrants Gain Protection
US Agency Promises to Minimize Transfer of Immigrant Detainees

The US agency responsible for detaining immigrants facing deportation has promised to transfer these immigrants between detention centers as little as possible. This news came shortly after Human Rights Watch released a report condemning the practice of moving detainees far from their homes.

The report, "Locked up Far Away," illustrates that moving people away from their families, lawyers, and evidence hurts their ability to present a legal defense. It shows how detainees, barred from calling family members and lawyers before being moved, are often "lost" to loved ones for days. Often moved thousands of miles,  many detainees end up in remote lock-ups in states unable to handle their legal needs.

About 1.6 million detainee transfers occurred between 1997 and 2006, and in 2008, a majority of detainees were transferred two or more times.

After releasing the report, Human Rights Watch, together with other nongovernmental organizations, held several consultations with the US Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency. In a recent letter to Human Rights Watch, the agency announced it intended to "minimize the number of detainee transfers to the greatest extent possible."

An Unfair Attack on Gay Troops
by Boris Dittrich

Gen.

The massacre at Srebrenica was a tragedy, but the Dutch army's policy allowing gays in the military had nothing to do with it.

Reaping the Harvest of Hate

 

Ram Puniyani

 

 

Film Review

 

Film: From Hindu to Hindutva

Debaranjan Sarangi, Pedestrian Pictures <debasar11@yahoo.co.in>,

Language: Oriya with English Subtitles

Duration- 44 Minutes

 

-

Kandhmal violence has been the most ghastly communal violence in the Adivasi areas in India. Close to two years after the violence the tragedy of the area continues, the victims of violence, the rehabilitation, the justice to victims, most of these are no where close to what they should be.

 

Debaranjan Sarangi, a social activist and writer has effectively caught the Kandhamal carnage in his short but comprehensive film with great amount of sensitivity and objectivity. He presents the whole event with the help of field interviews, the shots of burning of houses and churches and the pathetic condition of the refugee camps. His subtitling and comments not only make the theme more understandable to non-Oriya audience but also connect up different aspects of the material presented by him. The commentary in the form of text is very coherent making the film a powerful analysis of the events of Orrisa. The director weaves the picture with great precision without intruding into the flow of events as told by the perpetrators of the crime and the victims of the same.

 

The film begins with the event of murder of Swami Laxmandnand, Maoists state it has been done by them as he was spreading Hate in the area. Praveen Togadia of VHP takes out the procession of his body through sensitive areas of Kandhmal, the rumor is spread that Christians are behind the murder of Swami, as it is at their behest that Maoists have murdered him. One striking parallel which emerges from this account is that even in Gujarat Modi permitted the procession of the victims of Godhra train burning through Ahmedabad, accompanied by rumor that Muslims have burnt the train and this in turn incited the feelings of the people leading to carnage. VHP's Praveen Togadia does the same. The methods of RSS combine have so much of a parallel.

 

The victims of 'RSS combine' violence come through the film with their pain and anguish. Director has taken care to edit the interviews to the most relevant parts. From amongst victims many say that those who have killed the Swami should be punished, why are we and our children being punished. The attacker's were shouting the slogans of Jai Bajarang Bali.

 

The state, since Biju Janata Dal had BJP as an ally, soft peddled towards the criminals indulging in communal riots. This is the same story in most of the carnages, be it the anti Sikh pogrom, Mumbai violence or Gujarat carnage, state devices kid gloves to deal with the perpetrators of the crime. Also on the 'expected' pattern state gave no protection to victims. The VHP supporters worsened the situation by asserting that Christianity is a foreign religion, Christians should leave or they will be killed unless they convert into Hinduism. The hysterical pitch of the mob has been caught well in the camera.

 

Krishna Majhi, leader of Kui samaj, Adivasis, points out that Adivasis are not Hindus and the 'Home coming' campaign, conversion of Adivasis into Hinduism, is a forcible one. This home coming was conducted by Laxmandnand, at big scale. The Christians were tonsured and given a Hanuman locket. Hanuman has a central role in Hinduising the Adivasis. Most of the interviewees point out that Christian missionaries were involved mainly in health and education work. The VHP propaganda that dalits have grabbed Adivsai land is false as no such complaints were ever filed, nor do dalits have substantial land holdings. The interesting point is if it was a land issue, why the campaign for and rights was not taken, and why Hate was chosen as weapon. Clearly land issue was made a pretext for dividing the communities.  

 

 The violence is done by VHP for its political goals. Laxmananand indulged in lot of unchecked 'hate speech' against Christians. As a matter of fact his and RSS combines 'Hate other' speech against Christians laid the foundation of the violence.

 

Kandhmal was no flash in the pan. It was systematically built up from 1970 since the swami began his activities there. He had opened Sanskrit schools and Bhajan Mandali (group singing devotional songs), through which hate campaign was conducted. After the violence the major sectors of state were apathetic to the plight of Christians. Currently even their children are looked down in schools. The anti Christian atmosphere prevails till the day.

 

Film ends on a sad note, the reality of minorities in Orissa today is well depicted. Probably the efforts to get justice and relief done by civil society groups could have been highlighted by Sarangi. The film is a very good contribution by Pedestrian Pictures to draw our attention to the phenomenon of Kandhamal. It gives enough hints about the method of working of VHP, Vanvasi Kalyan Ashram and RSS combine in the Adivasi areas. Bringing out these linkages with RSS combine's methods in unleashing violence in other areas would have enriched the quality of the film. The title does not much convey the theme of the film. It is a must watch for all social activists and citizens at large.

Right, and no rider ever hangs on to a bottle longer
than necessary while taking a bottle from the car
on an uphill. Or drafts cars in the caravan while
returning to the peloton. Because those are rule
violations.

Hey dumbass,

There are rules and then there are rules. Hanging onto a bottle is not a big deal because the
advantage gained is negligible, if any. It's also a violation to wear a wrinkled race number.
But that's not the same thing as testing positive for EPO, now is it?

Stop being a fucking idiot. All rules are not the same. And throwing a race for money is
considered a career ending offense in any sport if you are caught. Holding onto a water bottle
to get back to a neutral position in the peloton is not.

That's a different magnitude of fraud than throwing the final result
of a race. I get the impression that all sports have no tolerance for
fraud committed in the heat of the battle that directly affects the
final outcome.

If that impression is coming from the ape then consider the
source.

If you have a copy of stage 19 of the 2005 Giro, Simoni vs
Savoldelli from the Colle della Finestre to the finish in
Sestriere, that's a good example. The Giro was on the line
and both Simoni and Savoldelli were isolated from teammates.
Each of them engaged in discussions with riders in the lead
group (and old Peugeot teammates Yates and Peiper back in
the team cars).

The description is here:
http://autobus.cyclingnews.com/road/2005//giro05/?id=results/giro0519

The end result was tactically fascinating. Much more
interesting than reading some ape retard yammer away while
typing with one hand.

Hey Dickweed,

In any sport, if you are caught throwing a game, it is grounds for a lifelong suspension and
banishment from the Hall of Fame. Ever heard of Pete Rose? Has nothing to do with my opinion.
It's a fact.

And all cyclists in that incident admit that no money was ever exchanged and that nobody threw any
stage. So this example actually disapproves what you say. Or, are you talking about virtual
race fixing?

Thanks,

The critical issue is whether or not he threw the race. If a rider
surmises he has no chance of winning the sprint, he can't 'throw the
race'. He can only choose to alter the outcome, one way or the other.
That a person in that situation chooses to alter the outcome toward a
friend that may pay it back later in similar circumstances, rather
than give it to someone that gives a rat ass or simply race stupidly
as if he could win when he can't, is hardly a difficult concept to
accept. In fact, giving the race to someone who may pay it back
arguably gives more to the team than a third place on the podium or
just having fourth and being two bike lengths closer.

Given your earlier comments (assuming this is the same chimp) about
places other than first and stupid, vainglorious attempts at places
that are unreachable, I would have expected you to agree with the
logic.

This is entirely different than a sprinter with a chance throwing the
win to a competitor. Hincapie had no chance in a finish with two or
more better close-in sprinters. He took a shot, saw it lost and gave
what he had to someone else. Maybe. Don't really know.

I would also toss out the bone of why is your logic different from
openly discussed stage wins given by the GC competitors. The
illegality of it would not change a hair just because LA may be going
for an overall GC and tossing (depending on who's talking) a stage win
to The Pirate. Really don't need to see you worry that one to death,
why one applies and the other does not. But since that is openly
discussed and no threats of fines tossed about, the UCI apparently
sees some room for flexibility here.

dumbass,

hincapie didn't throw the race, because he wasn't going to win anyway.
a more plausible scenario would be that eisel (the faster guy) would
sell the race to hincapie (the older richer pro).

i don't know what happens at the protour level, but in lower levels
riders do sell races - usually an amateur or low level pro (who wants
the money) will sell out to a older pro. catching it is almost
impossible. i only know of one case where a 'deal' between riders/
teams was penalized - that was because one of the riders bragged about
it on an internet board.

i've seen all kinds of blatant cheating, so what makes it magic that
taking bribes would be so sacred.

Do you really think Hincapie could have beaten Eisel
in a straight-up sprint, but sold him the race? Then
join Magilla in the Delusional Georgie Fan Club.

If on the other hand Eisel (or his DS) negotiated a
lead-out from Hincapie, is that really different than
cases where, for example, a team with no obvious
sprinter puts two guys on the front to bring back a
break, or people in a second group help the race
leader chase down an escape with no obvious
benefit to themselves? (IIRC, there was a clear
incident of this in a recent Giro.) It's not fraud, it's
not throwing a race. It may not be pretty, especially
if you harbor the fantasy that the strongest guy always
wins, not the smartest. On the other hand, that's
what makes bike racing interesting. Except to Magilla.

Of course, there is no actual proof that Hincapie
actually deliberately did Eisel a favor.

Fair enough. If you were in George's cleats after the final selection

You claim that there is no evidence for favors bought
and paid for in a race so it does not happen. Then you
cite UCI rules prohibiting such behavior, with
penalties. Do you see a connection?

Retard,

Jesus Fucking Christ. Benjo asked one of them, and was told
the terms. Just like years ago Adri van der Poel told him
how many guilders Liege-Bastogne-Liege was worth.

You dumbass,

There's no such thing as "winning" a stage in a stage race. Nobody
throws the GC. Crossing the line first on a stage in a stage race is a
meaningless act unless you are going for GC. It's like winning a point
in tennis and claiming that although you lost the match you "won" 189
points.

In every stage race there needs to be about 37 "winners" in cycling in
order to satisfy the pussified mentality of the people in this sport who
otherwise would not be able to deal with losing so often.

Thanks,

Magilla

Not really.

When was the last time that rule was enforced?

I can remember a few, some way worse, but most were because of an
officials' call, usually for safety. Screwed up finish layouts, with
stragglers wandering into the fast lane, is a good reason for waving
off half a field or more. First hot day in Texas or Oklahoma can do
it, too.

I seem to remember a number of World's RR's where we only had one or
two riders finish. Mari had a hell of a streak going for a while in
the RR.

I'm at the track, riding a Madison. I'm heading for an
exchange with my partner. My partner is Liz Hatch.

Liz is not an experienced Madison rider, and her exchange
timing is wrong. We are not going to exchange on the
straight like we are supposed to, it'll happen on the
turn. If you do the handsling correctly you transfer
the maximum amount of kinetic energy. The incoming
rider accelerates like they are shot out of a cannon,
the rider coming out instantly drops a load of speed.

If this happens on a turn it can cause problems for the
rider coming out. You don't want to exchange on a turn.

As I approach the exchange point I realize there is
another way to perform a legal Madison exchange. I
zero in on her can, wind up and *WHAP*!!!

I spank her while accelerating in a velodrome turn.
