Mr. Suresh Prabhu, Minister of Commerce and Industry, Government of India, today said that government is committed to providing quality health care within the country and outside through promoting the service sector. Speaking via video conferencing at the 'Advantage Health Care - India 2018'Â (4th International Summit on Medical Value Travel) organised by FICCIÂ jointly with theÂ Department of Commerce, Ministry of Commerce & Industry, Government of India,Â Mr Prabhu Â said, "We have set aside almost Rs. 5,000 Cr or approximately 700 million dollars for enhancing the overall services sector including healthcare."
Mr Sudhanshu Pandey, Additional Secretary, Ministry of Commerce and Industry, Government of India, said that it is extremely important that the healthcare facilities are affordable as only then more and more people can access quality healthcare. "Our efforts in India have been to reduce the cost of healthcare services, while we take our journey towards universal coverage, we try to offer and share our resources with the global citizens," he added.
He further said that India itself carries a very large disease burden and is trying to come up with programs and policies, latest one being Ayushman Bharat Scheme, where efforts have been made to extend a wide insurance coverage to the Indian citizens numbering over 500 million so that they can have access to better health care facilities.
Ms.Â SangitaÂ Reddy, Vice President, FICCI & Executive Director Apollo Hospitals Group said, "India is unparalleled in delivering quality medical care at one tenth of the global cost, and aims to transform this sector so that India becomes an epicenter of Medical Value Travel." She further added that we will continue to work on better facilities, translation, food, and outstanding medical services for our foreign patients. Our doors are open, our hearts are open, and our facilities are on par with the best.
Dr. Devlina Chakravarty, Co-Chair-FICCI MVT Committee & MD, Artemis Hospitals said that India has more than 1,600 NABH accredited facilities, & 32 JCI accredited hospitals. "Cost is not the only differentiator for India when it comes to medical value travel, we're also known for our talent," she added.
On the occasionÂ 'FICCI-EY Knowledge Paper on Medical TourismÂ in India' was also released by FICCI in association with Ernst and Young.
The dignitaries at the two-day conference and exhibition includedÂ Mr. Dilip Chenoy, Secretary General, FICCI; Dr. Shohani Ramzi, Head International Relation, Health Ministry of Iraq; Mr. Suranjan Gupta, Executive Director, EEPC India; Dr. Harish Pillai, Co-Chair - FICCI MVT Committee & CEO Aster Hospitals & Clinics, India at Aster DM Healthcare.
Advantage Health Care India - 2018 aims to present India as the most preferred healthcare destination for patients from across the globe. The idea behind the summit is to provide an opportunity for India to showcaseÂ its immense pool of medical capabilities as well as help develop opportunities for healthcare collaborations between the participating countries. Visitors and delegates from over 71 countries are participating in the Summit.
'FICCI-EYÂ KnowledgeÂ PaperÂ onÂ MedicalÂ TourismÂ inÂ India':Â KeyÂ takeawaysÂ ofÂ theÂ report:
1. Asia accounts for 58% share of total disease burden, while Africa stands at 24%, indicating the disease burden stress to be highly prominent in the Asian region
2. The largest disease burden comes from cardiovascular diseases which accounts for 14-15% of the total. This is followed by cancers, mental and neurological disorders, new born complications and other NCDs. Diarrhea and other infectious disease also account for 10%
3. MVT is a burgeoning multi-billion dollar industry and likely to grow higher due to many beneï¬ts oï¬€ered to patients
4. 95% of the medical travelers from Africa prefer travelling to Asia for medical treatments. A high-quality treatment at lower healthcare costs coupled with the possibility to travel to exotic places made Asia the preferred region for foreign medical travelers
5. India, Malaysia, Thailand and Singapore are the most preferred countries for medical treatments globally due to advanced quality healthcare and aï¬€ordable healthcare costs
6. Countries like Costa Rica, Mexico, Barbados and Antigua are expanding their services faster thus attracting patients from North America and Europe. The UAE is also developing itself as MVT hub by promoting developments in Dubai. Huge amounts ofÂ investment have been made in Dubai by the government, as it envisages itself as the medical hub in coming years
7. The lowest spending by the government has been observed in countries like Bangladesh and Myanmar indicating inadequate medical infrastructure. Thus, the inadequate infrastructure in source countries and higher prices of healthcare in developed economies like U.S. and Canada, become the high potential region where India can focus for the development of MVT.

Support group meetings play a very important role after any Bariatric Surgery. Support group meetings need to be informative, get people involved and at the same time should create a value and play a role in the weight loss journey of an operated patient. At 'Aastha Health Care', Support Group meetings have been organised month after month to support our patients post Bariatric Surgery. This time, Support group meeting theme was a Trek, an outdoor physical activity, to go through the rough terrains, to go uphill on a Sunday morning. Usually, trek is done by professionals or by those who would like to experience this as a picnic, but for those who could not walk a few steps without being breathless because of obesity, it was a challenge. This challenge was well accepted by almost 125 of our operated Bariatric Surgery patients and accomplished with finesse and determinationÂ .

Obesity is a debilitating disease with much impact on physical, medical and mental status of an individual. Obesity being a disease, has to be treated in stages and these stages are determined by BMI i.e Body Mass Index. Obesity in initial stages can always be controlled with diet and exercise, but when level of obesity increases, treatment options become limited. Higher BMIs more than 30 are candidates for Bariatric Surgery. Bariatric Surgery, unlike any other surgery needs cooperation from patient, family support and more importantly support from the operating Bariatric Surgeon and his team to ensure the best results. This support from Bariatric Surgery team can be in terms of counselling, regular motivation and Support group meetings to ensure patients get the much needed push and motivation to keep doing well forÂ a long period of time.
After the tremendous success of Navratri celebrations as the last Support group, the December meet was on the concept of a Bariatric Support group Trek, a unique initiative of 'Aastha Health Care'. Says Dr Manish Motwani, Bariatric Surgeon at 'Aastha Health Care', "We keep looking out for innovative ideas for our support group meetings so as keep the patient motivated to come and take benefit from these meetings. Sometimes, there are talks on skin, hair, glow, physical training, vitamin requirements and other times, we try to get patients involved in physical activities so that they can get the confidence to perform better and for them to realise their potential."

CHENNAI, December 5, 2018 /PRNewswire/ --
In a major breakthrough, for the first time in Asia,Â Parvathy Hospital, Chennai, successfully performed aÂ Day Surgery for partial knee replacement procedureÂ on aÂ 60-year-old woman. The surgical procedure, 'Unicondylar knee Arthoplasty', performed as outpatient orthopaedic surgery, by Dr. Vetri Kumar, Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon, Parvathy Hospital and his team of orthopaedic surgeons is considered as aÂ major milestone in the history of Orthopaedic surgeries in Asia. Parvathy Hospital has named this milestone as M.I.N.O.R.S - Morning In Night Out Replacement Surgeries.
Where patients once had to spend four to five days in the hospital recovering from the surgery, Parvathy Hospital's day surgery/ambulatory surgery procedure provides quicker recovery options, increased patient comfort with lower infection risk.Â With physiotherapy conducted within the comfort of one's home, recovery time is much quicker and highly effective.
The patient, Ms. Leela Shankar, a homemaker aged 60, started experiencing pain in her left knee and underwent all modalities of treatment, but failed to get reprieve from the pain. When her pain got worse and she was not able to walk on her own, she was recommended consultation at Parvathy Hospital.
After a complete diagnosis, it was found that she had developed Anteromedical Osteoarthritis on her left knee.Â 'Unicondlyar knee Arthoplasty', a surgical treatment for knee also known as partial knee replacement, was suggested for complete cure. Evaluating various parameters and criteria, the patient was found fit for Outpatient surgery, the day surgery, now well established worldwide but still not performed anywhere in Asia.
Dr. S. Muthukumar, Chairman & Chief Orthopaedic, Parvathy Hospital,Â said, "The Outpatient Orthopaedic surgery is a revolutionary step forward in this specialty. It is a proud moment for us, performing Asia's first and successful First Day Surgery for Knee Replacement. We had strictly followed the protocol for performing day surgery. It was also necessary to educate the patients on advantages of day surgery and the pre- and post-op protocols, as that's most important to its success."
On Surgical protocols,Â Dr. Vetri Kumar, Consultant Surgeon, Parvathy Hospital,Â said, "Pain is a big issue. We proactively monitored and addressed them with due pain control protocols, thereby maintaining pain as low as possible. Our treatment to the patient had shown remarkable recovery as she walked out to her home by evening. With our day surgical solutions, we have proved that it is possible to provide good quality day surgery care in orthopaedics and were able to completely reduce complications in immediate postoperative term. Further, it also reduces the stigma attached with treatment and recovery. We look forward to many more remarkable milestones in the future."
The patient said, "Walking had become difficult; I could feel this burning sensation in my leg after every step. I remember when I spoke to Dr. Vetri for the first time about my options.Â He said that you're a candidate for day surgery and I was thinking, 'No way', I don't want to be home managing that pain all by myself.' It was scary to me. After surgery, the same day, I was absolutely excited when I was able to walk after getting a knee replacement. The recovery was as quick as the surgical process with infrequent hospital visits, post-surgery. Adequate discharge instructions were advised, which kept me safe and pain-free at home. Now, I am ready to participate in walkathon, to be held this month."
Post-Surgery and treatment provided effective pain relief and high patient satisfaction to the patient. It also resulted in improved functionality, decreased time and shortened hospitalization.

Vidyashilp Academy celebrated the Fairtrade week with an array of activities to help raise awareness about trade practices that affects the daily choices in life. Being the first Fairtrade school in India, the school joins a huge network of schools internationally.
Â Â Â Â (Logo: https://mma.prnewswire.com/media/766744/Vidyashilp_Academy_Logo.jpg )
Becoming a Fairtrade certified school is a long process which requires bringing together groups of students, educators and parents who form the steering committee along with other knowledgeable members from the communityÂ to ensure that the school practices & activities are influenced. The Fairtrade week is an important time set aside on the school calendar to enlighten students and parents in the hope that they will take the message forward and adopt these practices in their own lives. As a school, Vidyashilp Academy has made commitments to India's farmers by becoming ambassadors of the movement, by taking the idea of Fairtrade to their communities.
In India, Fairtrade works mainly with the farming community in raising awareness and in impacting fairer prices, terms of trade, safe working conditions and local sustainability for farmers and workers in the developing world.
The week was observed with a packed schedule, with a visit to a farm that functions on the concepts of Fairtrade, various in-house activities and a special assembly on the objectives of Fairtrade were also conducted. As an ongoing classroom engagement over the year, the students also put together Fairtrade posters and creative slogans reaffirming their pledge to the movement. A friendly football match was also organised using certified Fairtrade footballs.
Looking back at the year gone by,Â Ms. Kalai Selvi, Head of the School,Â Vidyashilp AcademyÂ said, "The second year of Fairtrade week celebration at our school is indeed offering moments of absolute delight. Our children recognize the importance of considered choices; they understand and value the role of the farmer in their lives.

MUMBAI, December 4, 2018 /PRNewswire/ --
In its new avatar, fairy tales which have been considered 'women's tales' with a moral lesson in the end on how women should behave to find their 'happily ever after', find a new version within the feminist genre by a young author. Ariana Gupta, a 17-year old feminist, has taken the first step in bringing about a thought revolution. Her book 'New Age Fairy Tales' (which she has written and illustrated), holds a powerful message for little girls around the world.
Escaping the damsel in distress plot, in these stories the princesses save themselves. The book comprises of five fairy tales: The Little Mermaid, Snow White, Sleeping Beauty, Beauty and the Beast, and Cinderella.
Each story portrays a traditional character but with a contemporary twist addressing current social issues faced by girls in Indian society. Ariana, the author, says, "Inspiration behind this book was based on an advertisement campaign, titled Fiery Tales, which served to redefine the ideas of beauty using traditional fairy tale characters who weren't strong role models to look up to. I felt the need to educate young minds with something more meaningful and thus started this experiment of retelling stories with fairy tales."
Ariana added that for someone who grew up reading traditional fairy tales, she didn't have the best of role models. "The princesses were always helpless women waiting to be rescued by their knights in shining armours. Thus, it was always my dream to create fairy tales with strong, independent and realistic characters so that other little girls could have role models that I never had. The purpose of the book is to introduce feminism to children at a young age. Even if I am able to impact one little girl's life who can grow up to be an empowered woman, I know that I would have done something right by my art."
Mrs. Avnita Bir (Director- Principal, R.N. Podar School), on the occasion of the book launch of 'New Age Fairy Tales', said, "The young generation is buzzing with ideas of novelty with a touch of freedom. Times are changing and our stories need to evolve too. Ariana, our school's student is an embodiment of what this generation wants to read and learn."
About Ariana Gupta:
Passionate to pursue a career in the creative field, Ariana Gupta got a 98.4% in her 10thÂ boards and stood first in her school (R.N Podar) and is currently studying PCM in the 12th grade.She is a very studious and creative individual. Conversations with her are never not fun. She is outspoken and loves to debate. Apart from being extremely helpful and hardworking, sheâ€™s a voracious reader and a skillful artist. Nothing brings her more happiness than opening the door to discover the amazon delivery guy standing with her book. Along with a fondness for reading she also loves writing and hopes that one day her own book will be published. Ariana can be described as a multipotentialite. With an eye for photography thereâ€™s hardly anything that she canâ€™t do. Her camera takes her to destinations all over the world, to capture sunsets, people and more. She loves Disney movies and has always dreamt of directing one. But for now, she has decided to stick to freelancing as a graphic designer. Her artwork revolves mainly around ideas of femininity and womanhood. When it comes to designing, sheâ€™s done stuff ranging from book illustrations to logo designs. She also handles communicative design for all of her school events. She recently even designed yearbooks for grade 12th. When sheâ€™s not busy studying youâ€™ll find her sketching in a cozy corner.

It is a fallacy that India is becoming digitally literate at all levels. In actuality, it can be seen that the digital divide in India is increasing due to lack of proper training in digital literacy to rural youth which in turn results in improper and unproductive use of the Internet. In simple terms, one can say that it, the Internet, is not being utilised positively in the developmental process of rural India.
Â Â Â Â (Photo: https://mma.prnewswire.com/media/792036/Edimpact_Project_Surya_Kiran.jpg )
Lack of trained professionals, unavailability of electricity coupled with tough terrain of interior villages has always been a major factor in inhibiting digital literacy drive in rural India.
Digital literacy is now taking a whole new meaning in rural India. Edimpact, a company based in Jharkhand and now expanding to many other states in India, is playing a pivotal role in imparting computer skills to the unprivileged rural children through its Project 'Surya Kiran'. Edimpact has developed a mobile computer lab which is powered by solar energy and does not require conventional electric supply. Maruti EECO vans have been redesigned with a 1KVA inverter and battery powered by solar panels on the roof. The interior of the vehicle has been redesigned to power 5 laptops and one demo computer and is equipped with Wi-Fi Internet. 6 to 7 students can sit comfortably and learn basic computer skills. The system has a backup of around 7 hours (when solar energy is not available), which otherwise runs directly on solar energy. This mobile facility is thus a great boon to the schools where students do not have a full-fledged computer lab in their schools or a trained teacher.
According to the Director of Edimpact, Mr. Sanwill Srivastava, the vehicle will have a driver and a trained professional who will go to remote villages and provide training on Computer Basics, Internet, E-mail, Cyber Security, Productivity Programs and Cashless Transactions. According to Mr. Sanwill, the company also has plans to provide basic governmental services to rural citizens like UID registration, PAN registration, certificates applications, printing of results, etc. What is significant is that the mobile centre operates within the village and that the people don't have a problem of commuting to towns to access this knowledge.
The flexibility in design and functionality enables the Project Surya Kiran vehicle to be used as a mobile health centre, cybercafÃ©, an IT classroom and even as a centre to organise community training in. These vehicles, the first of their kind, are also used to impart google apps training to teachers in schools where such facilities don't exist. This aspect is also to be given greater focus in the coming year. Equipping the teacher with advanced computer knowledge and the students with basic and practical computer skills is vision of the future.
Edimpact is an education technology company registered in the USA and India. We devise unique learning programs that use the latest technology to impart knowledge, especially computer knowledge. The objective of the company is to make education accessible to all, by delivering knowledge in a simple and affordable manner. The company is running its projects now in several states in India.

- 9th grader Veer Agrawal raises Rs.14 lacs to fund artificial limb fitment for about 300 physically challenged patients from low income families
Veer Agrawal, a 9th grade student from American School of Bombay, was all smiles on the successful completion of the four-day 'Jaipur Foot' camp for which he had raised funds to the tune of Rs.14 lakhs. The funds raised enabled the 'Jaipur Foot' camp held at Risod in Washim district of Maharashtra from 23rd to 26th November, organised by Seth Bhagwandas J Agrawal Charitable Trust. About 350 physically challenged people from nearby districts visited the camp, out of which about 300 were found fit for the treatment with prosthetic leg and were able to walk again. Over a dozen were also provided with wheel-chairs.
Â Â Â Â (Photo: https://mma.prnewswire.com/media/791504/Jaipur_Foot_Camp.jpg )
Expressing his joy at helping people regain their mobility, Veer Agrawal said, "A road accident some years ago resulted in a thigh bone fracture that left me bedridden for weeks. The agonizing experience always haunted me and motivated me to do something for physically challenged people from financially weak background and help them to experience the joys of walking and running once again. I learnt about the concept of 'Jaipur Foot' camp and decided to set up a crowdfunding campaign on a websiteÂ http://vhelptowalk.org/ created for the same." The camp was organized through Seth Bhagwandas J Agrawal Charitable Trust. His parents supported him in this noble initiative.
Speaking on what drew him to rural India, Veer added, "Through my research on the net, I found that there are many needy people in rural India who did not have access to and could not afford a prosthetic limb. This motivated me to take-up this cause in rural parts. It is fulfilling to see them walk again. I am deeply thankful to all who supported this cause and made this camp so successful."
Fitting amputees with the 'Jaipur Foot' costs about Rs. 5,000 per patient. The artificial limb is customised to fit the patient as per their size and post-fitment, the patient is able to walk normally again. Amputees, because of accidents as well as polio affected persons, were among those who benefitted from the camp.
