About the workshop:
Ph.D. students in their journey are not only expected to equip themselves with the necessary skills and competency but also navigate through a demanding doctoral process. The lonely nature of the Ph.D. also prevents them from meeting their peers and interacting with them. Conferences, symposiums are such platforms where Ph.D. scholars get an opportunity to meet each other and build a network. However, considering the dominance of technical sessions within such platforms, it becomes difficult to engage and network with like-minded people closely. Thus, the aim of this workshop is to provide a platform that facilitates interaction among Ph.D. and aspiring Ph.D. students and stimulates learning from peers and experienced researchers.

This workshop is an amalgamation of technical sessions and informal conversations and would be conducted in a hybrid format with virtual and in-person sessions (if covid permits). The workshop will use interactive methods and activities to open up conservations among students not only related to the research process but also on their experience of traversing through the Ph.D. terrain. This is the first workshop of its kind at the Institute of Public Health, Bengaluru. We hope to organize this workshop on an annual basis.

What will the workshop offer to the participants?

1. Improve their scientific writing, and presentation skills and learn how to communicate their findings to a larger audience including fellow researchers, policymakers, and layperson
2. Build their reviewing skills and learn how to review a paper
3. Opportunity to network with their peers and boost their networking skills for conferences
4. Learn how to handle various challenges while traversing through the Ph.D. terrain
5. Gain an understanding of the scope and direction after Ph.D.

Strengthening Primary Health Care

Strengthening Primary Health Care

It has been estimated that over 80% of the world’s population depends on traditional healing systems as their primary source of care. Traditional Medicine consists of codified and non-codified streams of knowledge. The Foundation for Revitalization of Local Health Traditions (FRLHT), Bengaluru is currently operating a National Scheme along with the Quality Council of India (QCI) for the Assessment, Training and Certification of Traditional Community Health Practitioners based on a standards competency model aligned with ISO 29990 and ISO 17024 which looks at applying stringent rigors for the process of training and certifying TCHPs.

A Comparison of National Guidelines

A Comparison of National Guidelines

Visceral Leishmaniasis (VL) is an infectious disease predominantly transmitted by the sandfly. 90% of the cases of VL in the world occur in Brazil, Ethiopia, South Sudan, Sudan, India, Nepal, and Bangladesh. In 2005, the WHO South East Asia Region, responding to increasing incidences of VL in the Indian subcontinent, initiated a VL elimination program within India, Bangladesh, and Nepal. The aim was to reduce the incidence of VL to <1 case per 10,000 cases in districts/subdistricts within the three countries by 2015. Since then, the goalposts have shifted from 2015 to 2017 and, now, to 2020. Nepal and Bangladesh have traveled much further on the road to elimination than India has, Nepal having sustained the elimination target in the 12 once-endemic districts since 2012. In 2016, Bangladesh reached the elimination target in 99% of its endemic subdistricts (upazilas). Lagging closely behind, India has reached the elimination target in 85% of endemic subdistricts. The aim of this literature review predominantly on the national guidelines of VL elimination/control in the three countries as well as some research articles on the same is to compare the program in India with Bangladesh and Nepal, to identify similarities and differences between the programs, and to extrapolate data to see how India can learn from Bangladesh and Nepal to hasten its pace towards elimination of VL.
