Priyanka Chopra inspires teenage girls to aim high with UNICEF
 
01:57
To mark International Youth Day 2014, Bollywood Actress and International Recording Artist Priyanka Chopra visited young women in Chandrapur, India to witness how their lives are being transformed through the Building Young Futures Deepshikha programme, which is run by UNICEF in partnership with Barclays. In India there are around 243 million adolescents who are facing rising youth unemployment. Life can be particularly hard for young women as they face the challenges of limited economic opportunities and access to training and employment, which reinforce broader issues of discrimination, early marriage, violence and poverty. Priyanka Chopra has been supporting UNICEF’s adolescent work in India for eight years. During her visit she met young women from the programme and saw how they are being empowered to help fulfil their potential. Building Young Futures is a global partnership between Barclays and UNICEF that aims to unlock the potential of young people from disadvantaged communities. Through the programme in India young women are receiving peer to peer support in developing the life, enterprise and financial skills they need to overcome the challenges they face to become strong, financially independent women as well as agents of change in their communities. Priyanka Chopra said: “Girls have the ability to transform their own lives, develop their own enterprises and help grow India’s economy. The Building Young Futures programme being implemented by UNICEF in collaboration with Barclays is giving them the vital skills and support they need to make this happen.

Silent Scream: Understanding nutrition crisis among India’s tribal children
 
06:44
India is home to 104 million Tribal Peoples. For centuries, forests nourished them. In the last 70 years, they lost their forests, their habitat, livelihood and social identity. Today, every second Tribal child is chronically undernourished. The loss of land and livelihood is a major cause of undernourishment. Financial and social insecurity aggravates the problem of premature marriages and early pregnancy. 70 per cent of Tribal women become mothers before the age of 20. 47 per cent of these mothers are undernourished. Poor sanitation and lack of public services exacerbates Tribal Peoples nutrition crisis. The nutrition crisis and neglect needs to end. It's time to correct the historic wrongs. Underserved and under nourished, the Tribal Peoples have been left for too long out of the India’s growth story. We need to realize... They are not 'they'... They... are Us #iCOMMIT to change the situation...

Let The Tribal Peoples Voice Lead - Virginius Xaxa
 
04:17
Historically, Tribal Communities have best flourished in their own domain, where they had ownership of land and forests, which they protected prudently. Sadly, when they are displaced because of dams, industries or other infrastructure, often there is either no or inadequate rehabilitation, resettlement and compensation. In Odisha and Jharkhand where poverty among adivasis is highest, displacement has also been maximum. Weak governance is the main reason for poverty and chronic undernutrition among tribal children. Tribal Peoples rely heavily on forests for their livelihood and close to half of their daily food intake comes from the forest. It follows that restricting their access to forests has a direct impact on their lives, nutrition status and therefore the overall quality of health. In the past, when Tribal Peoples lived in the forest, a wide variety of foods ranging from vegetables, fruits, milk and animal products were available. But after moving out of their habitat, poor income has restricted their ability to buy a variety of foods and this has had an adverse implication on their lives. Families also find it difficult to adjust to the new food practices; unsurprisingly therefore, there is considerable deficiency in food intake. The Constitution provides protection along with the provisions for development and implementation of welfare programmes and schemes for adivasis. However, there has been too much concentration on the development part but the protection part has not been taken care of. All the affirmative action programmes of education, health and employment gets countered by the larger issue of the political space that actually throws them out from their livelihood and where their voice is unfortunately missing or unheard. In order to make a difference to their lives, it is important that for some time, the larger trends in political economy of development are altered to ensure that Tribal Peoples are really able to develop. The constitutional guarantee to provide protection to Tribal Peoples must be ensured along with the effective implementation of the different affirmative action programmes and schemes. The larger questions relating to land and forests should be addressed by giving Tribal communities their entitlements to land, forests and other kinds of resources. If they have their own voice, possibly a state of their own, and autonomy over their territory, they should be better able to articulate their needs more forcefully. Therefore, the real issue is to change the paternalistic mindset of the government that something good for the people being done to ensuring voice and space is provided to them. This will help in regaining their right to a better and productive life. - Professor Virginius Xaxa, Deputy Director, Tata Institute of Social Science, Guwahati

India Is Now Polio Free
 
03:48
India has not reported any case of polio since a two-year old girl got polio paralysis on 13 January 2011 in Howrah district of West Bengal. India’s victory over polio paves the way for polio-free certification of the South East Asia region of WHO. India overcame huge challenges, with a strong commitment that matched $ 2 billion allocation over the years to stop polio. Implementing innovative strategies, the programme reaches an incredible 99 per cent coverage in polio campaigns, ensuring every child, even in the remotest corner of the country is protected against polio. India introduced the oral polio vaccine in 1985 in the Universal Immunisation Programme in the backdrop of over 200,000 cases of polio annually (as per estimates of the Indian Academy of Pediatrics). In 1995, the first national polio immunization campaign was held; since then two national and multiple sub-national campaigns are rolled out every year for children up to 5 years of age. In each national polio campaign, 2.3 million lakh vaccinators, led by 155,000 upervisors, visit 209 million households to immunize 170 million children up to the age of 5 years. To immunize children on the move, transit vaccinators are positioned at bus stands, train stations, on trains, market places and important road intersections. Nearly 10 million children are immunized by the transit teams in each polio campaign, of them 100,000 on trains. Focusing on the migrant population, the people on the move in search of livelihood who miss polio immunization in view of their transient nature, the programme covers 70,000 brick kilns and 38,000 construction sites. Nearly 4.5 million children are immunized in the high-risk migrant settlements in each polio campaign. Since the start of the polio campaigns in 1995, as many as 131 polio campaigns have been held in India till date, in which 12.1 billion doses of polio vaccines have been administered.

From 200, 000 to Zero - The journey to a Polio-free India Before the launch of the Global Polio Eradication Initiative, polio crippled an estimated 200,000 children in India each year. As recently as 2009, India reported almost half the world's cases -- 741 out of a total 1604 cases worldwide. Many health experts predicted India would be the last country to eradicate polio. Yet in 2012 India achieved a major milestone. By passing one full year without recording any cases, India is no longer considered a polioendemic country.

Meet Barmer's E-ASHA
 
02:08
While the typical ASHA moves around with pen and paper 'collecting information', Barmer's E-ASHA provides counselling with the help of fancy tablets. You heard it right! In 2006, the Ministry of Panchayati Raj named Barmer among India's 250 most backward districts. In addition to economic challenges and the daily hardships imposed by a life in the desert, women and children in Barmer have limited access to quality health care and counseling services. The infant and maternal mortality rate in the district is among the highest in Rajasthan. The people living in villages in this district, like any other district in India, rely heavily on ASHA workers to provide counselling on pregnancy and newborn care. In April this year, the community health mobilizers of Barmer witnessed a drastic transformation in their roles when they were equipped with tablets to support their work of counseling mothers and pregnant women on issues related to health, nutrition, sanitation and best hygiene practices. Besides significantly improving their counseling capacity, the tablets helped the health workers to keep a tab on the health of mothers, pregnant women and children. A large credit for this innovation goes to the young students like Vivek Agarwal and Vaibhav Bahuguna from IIT Jodhpur who have worked hard for the idea of E-ASHA to be successful. Join us in congratulating these students and also wishing Barmer's E-ASHAs like Pushpa Devi all the best for their work in Barmer. Watch this video to see how ASHAs has incorporated the tablets as one key element in their day-to-day work.
