Control of Venereal Diseases
RV Rajam
May-June 1968, 34(3):114-121
A separate independent section for VD and Yaws in the Directorate General of Health Services as in the case of other communicable diseases. The projects in the State should be centrally sponsored and not aided. The target of one VD clinic in every district should be aimed at and implemented. The quality and standard of performance of the existing clinics should be greatly improved both from the point of view of prevention and treatment. The VD clinics in the hospitals should be under the Public Health wing of the States health administrative including the- teaching hospitals. Doctors with public health qualification with orientation in VD and other communicable diseases are the proper persons to be in-charge of the VD clinics to give them an epidemiological bias. The clinician is interested in the individual patient. The public health officer is interested in the health of the community. At the periphery in Taluq Hospitals and Primary health centres, VD should be integrated with Tuberculosis, Leprosy, Maternity and Child Welfare and the family Planning programmes. Efficient quick laboratory service at the district level is a sine-qua-non for the scientific treatment of VD. A closer liaison between the Armed Forces and the civil authorities to uncover the sources of infection among the civilian population. Yaws is not national problem. It is confined to the back woods of certain contiguous states. With more vigorous measures of mass treatment, the non-venereal treponemal disease could be eradicated. We should beware Syphilis does not enter by the back door to fill the vacuum.
