We have continued to work in 20 villages in Minapur block to reduce deaths due to Acute Encephalitis among children. The good news is that there has been no death due to encephalitis in these villages in 2020, while 4 children died in 2019, before SAM started the program. The table below illustrates our work.
Number of total villages 20 Number of home visits 333 Contact through phone 121 Children sick with suspected encephalitis 12 Number of deaths in 2020 0 Number of deaths in 2019, before SAM program 4
We are eager to expand the program to 154 villages of Minapur, after the Corona threat is over.
