HIV / AIDS
Through initially male & female ratio was in favour of more males-but gradually it is becoming evenly distributed in both sexes-as the female gender is more vulnerable and exposed to the infection, not out of their own choice in the matter of sexuality in a conservative Indian society. Equally HIV has spread fast in rural India, also along with upper and enlightened sections of the society-crossing all the groups of 20 to 60 years of age, which is the most productive-economically, active- sexually and reproduction-wise and whole country's present and future stakes are depending on the same. As India has 1.2 billion Population, it has may be the absolute no of cases quite high & unable to assess it accurately. States like Maharashtra, Tamilnadu, Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka, Manipur, Nagaland, Gujrat, M.P, Kerla, West Bengal & a few more have dared to show a picture of HIV positivity more than others. But the rest of the country is still silent on this grave issue, though the HIV has now spread to nook and corner of the country. Even the premiere medical institutes and hospitals don't produce nor have a record of HIV positive status of their indoor patients in any of the relevant departments. like operation theatre, maternity, ICU, trauma and emergency units, voluntary donation- unit of blood-bank, surgical wards, serious patients, all tuberculosis and S.T.D cases etc.
The so-called policy of non-discrimination is very conveniently exploited in hospitals, nursing homes, casualty emergency unit & indoor admissions where the HIV positive patients are kept without being provided with specific medical attention or services and the required Nursing & care which are required to look after these patients is totally missing. Many-a time even the nursing staffs and other paramedical attendance are missing to serve them. Of-course the HIV positive patient & his/ her relative don't dare and demand the justified treatment in presence of the social and medical stigma attached to this disease-leading to suffering and dyeing in silence. Though many big private hospitals are under the preview of charity commissioner-but none of them have a special HIV/ infectious disease OPD nor any specified ward, dedicated staff & specially trained Medical professionals. As a matter of fact they feel afraid even to admit the HIV positives due to fear of losing other attractive cash-yielding rich patients. Contrary to this, many-a-time the HIV positive patient has to pay more for his diagnosis being kept as a secret and naturally his condition deteriotes gradually to become full-blown AIDS. Lastly he is told that it is the end of the road & hence he should leave the hospital after paying a very hefty bill and allowed to die all alone. Even the third party payments/reimbursement/medical insurance payment/post death LIC payments etc. all are denied in presence of medical diagnosis of HIV positivity. So how can you expect any justice in this system of so- called Non-discrimination? Inspite of so many deaths in moribund state of HIV positivity i.e., AIDS-how many death- certificates have been issued even in the modern metropolis of Mumbai with a HIV positivity ( Sero-Positive) as a underlying medical condition and not as The cause-of-death.
Then why the hesitation and fear in case of HIV/AIDS? At least our organization may be better off to assess the extent, prevalence & severity of HIV/AIDS scenario at local and national levels. it shall help to plan a comprehensive medical plan and its execution for the better control and management of both prevention as well as treatment ( support & care with awareness). Mumbai is being quoted as the AIDS capital of India-may be because of high awareness and more diagnostic acceptance of the people & medical fraternity. The estimated prevalence of infection is gradually reaching the dangerous mark of approximating to 0.5% of total population at national level in coming 5-10 years. While in Mumbai it is already nearing 1% in general population and aprox 5% in high- risk-groups like cases of drug Resistant TB, Sex-workers, truck-drivers, drug abusers/addicts, chronic STD cases, homosexuals, Transgenders etc. As it is a new brave world of open economy, trade, work-culture where the concept of the youths is -Work hard and Enjoy harder ! The borders between marketing, communication and advertising are being so blurred, so ugly, so loud & so desperate to distract the customer's attention and grabbing his money-pouch immediately, hence the Adolescents and young population are more and more indulging in promiscuous and casual sexual behavior and activities, & hence HIV+Vity is spreading rapidly in the younger generation crossing all the barriers, along with higher incidence of STD & VDs. HIV positivity is a life-long infection with no curative drug nor a prophylactic vaccine. The disease thrives on human arrogance and ignorance, both of which are at peak amongst youths and also as per the latest trend, life re-begins after 40+ , so why not to enjoy?
thus all the propaganda, energy and resources purely focused and spent in loud-mouth advertising & so called – awareness & prevention activities alone, with no accountability is unable to go into various complex medical and scientific details due to technical constraints and limitations, For any communicable disease to spread exponentially there is a compulsory requirement of Minimum critical mass Level of Residual Active Infectivity status available in a given society or population, without which the vicious cycle of the disease process, cannot take place further. Hence ideally lots of genuine and scientific efforts should have been aimed at different therapeutic levels i.e. on treatment and management of all HIV+ve cases to reduce the total quantum of the infectivity index in the given population. This approach was vigorously practiced and pursued in parts of the western world- with proper and full monitoring of the cases as well as of the high-risk-groups-so that, though the initial incidence of HIV+Vity was quite high in a given population, but due to intensive and proper interventions with all-round medical management and treatment-both in private and public health services with qualitative approach, gradually this high incidence has been brought down and being kept under reasonable check.
In that comparison and contrast in our country, in spite of enormous funds and prolonged time being consumed, there has been no success or very little consolation in the same field-primarily because our efforts and spending have been mostly propaganda oriented, loud talks with no follow-up scientific actions, no proper cost-accounting and auditing and most importantly it has been mostly a non-medical or discrete medical programme, with emphasis on exciting newspapers and T.V headings, cultural and glamorous events and functions with speeches but no medical planning or execution thereafter! Most of these fund collection drives have been personality and profit oriented with undue political and governmental clout. The enormous grants of the govt. pvtand foreign institutions have benefited a few pseudo- medicos and their so-called NGOs, who have done their best to be in the lime-light all throughout, mainly due to great publicity received through media, including T.V., newspapers, magazines and political patronage and also due to gross neglect of the authentic post-graduate medical doctors practicing in the field of HIV/AIDS treatments in their private capacities in dedicated professional manner are quite media-shy & contented in their practice & who don't have right political and media-connection as well with no Personal NGOs in their Pockets. What a heavy penalty! HIV positive status is paying due to none's fault but due to a faulty system and hence the eventual system- failure! Thus this is high time that the responsible citizens, well- learned professionals including journalists, medical NGO, private and public corporates and institutions should come forward to help this most important and Herculean threat and challenge facing the Indian society. For this-not only govt.-bodies alone can be successful. Hence there lies the challenge to practicing authentic medical consultants who are treating, managing & providing support and care to HIV positive patients and their families, including admissions, pregnant mothers, delivery, afflicted children, surgery and intensive treatment of the serious cases. the society does require authenticate, specialized & independent HIV-and AIDS- clinics, Day-care-centers & Indoor hospitals under the supervision of a well- trained & qualified medical- consultant to provide all-around and all- possible care, support, treatment & detailed counseling to the patients and their families from early positivity up to terminal illness supported by both private and public funding so that the masses start building faith and trust in HIV treatment as a truthful medical experience rather than just an exciting but depressive event.
Govt. funds, foreign grants, public & private donations should contribute towards the inception, support and day-to-day maintenance of the above-mentioned medical Orginasiation & NGO. The pharmaceutical companies shall be required to provide all the necessary drugs & assistance to the needy patients at subsidized costs. The Govt. should bring about effective and urgent legislation against all the quackeries and misuse of the collected public funds and grants under fictitious banners of so called propaganda-based bodies (may be NGOs) and the quacks misusing the names of Natural/ Herbal/ Ayurvedic / Homeopathic treatment. The compulsory concept of third party payment including employer's fund & Insurance cover should be brought in to practice thru urgent legislation by the government. Then why to do so much preventive propaganda in the most costliest and ugliest glamorous styles, when you can-not even execute religiously the HIV- screening before marriages; so that the innocent shall not fall prey due to the partner? Isn’t it one of the most important and blissful prevention? Then why and how to talk on individual's right of freedom to ruin the life of others? Why not to make the treatment of HIV positive mothers compulsory-so that newborns can be saved for their innocence? Thus it has become imperative to change our basic thinking, attitude and hence actions with reference to the whole of HIV-intensive therapeutic intervention rather than only dwelling in loud and costly propaganda based-so-called prevention programs.
Hence we advocate Don't advertise HIV & AIDS! – too much, but please help the treatment (care & support) of the same as it is the backbone of HIV- Aids prevention!
