Resolution 2: Be serious about health issues

After the outbreak this year of the Dengue Virus (which was extensively covered here), we hope this be the last year we have to suffer through these. The dengue outbreak highlighted the vast indifference of the political powers for the general health and well being of the largest city in the country.

We wish more officials from within the health ministry are involved in the various seminars conducted around the city, especially on viral and epidemic deseases, and the involvement of these people is more than ribbon cutting and bouquet giving. We wish for a more proactive department, where people with genuine interest are inducted, rather than people failing in other departments. We wish for stability within the province, so that funds can be allocated and spent where needed the most.

SMC and DMC are already doing a good job of educating doctors, lets hope for the next year, incentives and offers allow the best and brigthest to help their own city-men rather than taking the first flight abroad.

    I think a better resolution could’ve been: Help and promote cleanliness and healthy living in your city.

    Almost the same, differently worded, emphasis on cleanliness of city and surroundings.
