Life of a Medical Officer – Part 2 (Measles Vaccination at Pal)

Hello everybody,

As mentioned earlier, we did ‘Measles Catch-Up Campaign’ Vaccination program successfully. But unfortunately, I was (/am) not in a condition to type a post, both due to health related issues and to monitor other national health-programs and their meetings. So, even today, I will try my best to let you visit the Pal, by pictures only. I hope, by the end of this post, some of the readers will get to know, what we used to go through ( irrespective of speeches of media and government).

Life of a Medical Officer

[ Note - Due to lack of time, instead of posting at relevant lines, I am posting all images and videos in the end of this post. I will reformat and correct grammatical mistakes, if and when I could get time. ]

Hello, I am Dr. Atul Tiwari, Medical Officer at Pratapgarh (Rajasthan). I was originally posted at PHC Avleshwar of Pratapgarh district. On July 25th 2012, I attended State level training and thereby became one of the district trainer (and The Youngest one) for Measles Immunization. It is a govt. program to vaccinate and/or re-vaccinate all children of age range 9 months – 10 yrs. And we were asked to achieve target 100% strictly, else we will have to complete this task without any extra financial help.

On 8th August 2012, I was (relieved from PHC Avleshwar and) ordered to join PHC Devgarh, which was said to be one of the toughest place where achieving a target of even 50% was a challenging thing. Now I had 2 PHCs to take care of, one officially (PHC Devgarh) and one unofficially (PHC Avleshwar, as there was no acting Medical Officer for the task). I relieved and joined from respective places on the same day. I don’t want to describe the PHC building / infrastructure at this point, as it will divert my original topic. But it should be pictured some other time. I just want to highlight that at that time I was completely unaware of geography of that PHC and its 34 villages.
