The first-ever oral cholera vaccination campaign in Yemen was launched on 6 May and concludes on 15 May, just before the start of Ramadan. The campaign aims to prevent the resurgence of the world’s largest cholera outbreak. The volatile mix of conflict, a deteriorating economic situation, and little or no access to clean drinking-water and sanitation have resulted in more than one million suspected cholera cases since the outbreak began in April 2017.

A race against time

This campaign is part of a broader cholera integrated response plan, implemented by national health authorities, WHO and UNICEF. Outbreak response activities include surveillance and case detection, community engagement and awareness, enhancing laboratory testing capacity, improving water and sanitation, and training and deploying rapid response teams to affected areas.

This epidemic has affected the entire country, and the implementation of this oral cholera vaccination campaign, as part of the entire response to cholera, marks a milestone in the combined efforts of WHO and UNICEF, in partnership with the World Bank and Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance, through the generous support of our donors.

“The ongoing conflict, lack of access to safe drinking-water, weak sewage systems due to lack of fuel for pumps and the collapsing health system is the perfect mix for a new explosion of cholera during Yemen’s rainy season, which is already in its beginning stages,” said Dr Nevio Zagaria, WHO Representative in Yemen.

“Hot” districts prioritized to prevent spread

On 24 April, UNICEF delivered the first batch of 455 000 doses of oral cholera vaccine from the Gavi-funded global stockpile, targeting people over the age of 1 year, including pregnant women.  The Global Task Force for Cholera Control approved the request of more than 4.6 million doses of the vaccine from the global stockpile to target cholera hotspots across the country.

“This vaccination campaign comes at such a critical time. Children in Yemen were the worst hit by last year’s outbreak and remain the most vulnerable due to widespread malnutrition and deteriorating sanitation and hygiene,” said Meritxell RelaƱo, UNICEF Representative in Yemen.

Recent reports revealed that in the first 3 days of the campaign, more than 124 000 doses of oral cholera vaccine were administered. This represents 35% of the estimated target population in the 4 districts where the campaign began. A fifth district, will be included in the coming days, bringing the total target population to 470 905 individuals. The campaign currently involves 11 fixed teams and 328 mobile teams.

    IAS preparation goes online as over 120 students of make it to the final list

    places to travel in summer  Thyroid treatment in Ahemadabad  digital marketing agency in delhi full cream organic milk : 
    The Union Public Service Commission (UPSC) has recently declared the results of Civil Services Examination, 2017 (CSE-2017). DurishettyAnudeep has topped the examination. AnuKumari and Sachin Gupta bagged the second and third position respectively.

    Interestingly, top 10 rankers belong to 8 different states including Telangana, Haryana, Himachal Pradesh, U.P and Rajasthan. Traditionally, aspirants from across the country had two choices - either relocate to Delhi, the coaching mecca for IAS preparation, or study from a local, typically sub-par teacher in their own town.

    The digital wave in India is enabling more and more aspirants to use technology for exam preparation. One example among many is that of IlmaAfroz. She belongs to a small town named Kundarki in district Moradabad (U.P). In such a remote place, there are no options of quality education. Ilma used the help of technology. She assisted her civil services preparation with online courses from the ed-tech platform NeoStencil. Her grit, hardwork and use of technology enabled her to secure All India Rank 217.

    Even students who reside in coaching hubs see value in online education. Saumya Sharma (AIR -9) chose NeoStencil’s online courses despite belonging to Delhi. Doing so, she was able to save time travelling to and from coaching centres, and waiting for teachers to start classes.

    Ilma and Saumya are not alone. In this year’s results, 2 ranks in top 10 and over 120 overall took online courses from NeoStencil. These candidates were online students of 
    NeoStencil alone who enrolled for one or the other online courses taught by over 60 teachers on the live-learning platform.

    This 120 number is from one company alone. If other online players in civil services preparation segment such as Byju’s, Unacademy among others were included, this number is bound to go up. Such increasing number of selections from the online mode is a testimony to the fact that online classes for UPSC exam have emerged as a strong alternative to the traditional preparation methodology. Such ed-tech startups are aiding digital inclusive education and bridging the gap between haves and have-nots by providing aspirants easy and seamless access to the best teachers without the need to relocate or face the hassle of tiring travel. Moreover, existing teachers who have been around for decades are now using such platforms to extend their reach beyond their physical classrooms.

    As per Kush Beejal, Co-founder & CEO of NeoStencil, “Our consistent track record year after year shows that we are able to solve a real problem faced by exam aspirants. 100 online selections in 2016, and over 120 in UPSC/CSE 2017 cements the fact that online learning from the best teachers of the country is the way to solve the problem of access to quality education while ensuring learning outcomes”.

    NeoStencil is an online marketplace platform. Through its live-learning technology, the company connects India’s top teachers with exam aspirants around the country. Other startups in government jobs preparation include BYJUs, Unacademy and OnlineTyari.
