Fear and Uncertainty across Borders troubles heart environs: Dr Sushil

Early Times Report

Jammu, Nov 17: Augmenting his resolve to educate the common populace regarding various morbidities associated with the growing burden of cardiovascular diseases and its associated linkage with certain vulnerable groups, Dr. Sushil Sharma conducted a day long camp with the border residents of Ramgarh area in collaboration with Border Welfare Organisation.
At the outset, he maintained that cardiovascular diseases does not discriminates between rich and poor, urban and rural, developed and developing or other like constructs. However, he highlighted that CVD operates harshly on certain age groups, gender, displaced population, border residents, and those with issues of less accessibility, affordability and availability of resources.
He particularly highlighted the plight of border residents, who owing to built environment character suffer undue sufferings due to continuous fear and uncertainty. Besides numerous psycho-social factors responsible for the rapid surge of CVD in this population, the intersectionality of numerous other socio-economic barriers compounds the already deteriorating health profile in concerned areas.
The economic and social implications of premature mortality owed to CVD require the identification and prevention of the elements that precipitate this rising mortality trend. Unfortunately, in many developing countries, risk factor data is limited or is descriptive of the country as a whole or that of a single State. This broad evaluation of risk varies greatly by regions and sometimes doesn't reflect the rates in the community. Therefore, constant evaluation of CVD mortality over time with special focus on border areas needs to be done. However, such studies need to be initiated and executed from multidisciplinary perspective, Dr. Sushil exhorted.
Management Committee of Border Welfare Organisation Avinash Choudhary, Ashish Gupta, Yograj, Kuldeep Jangral, Anil Kumar appreciated the resolve of Dr. Sushil and his team for conducting health camp in their area and educating the people on such important theme.
Others who were part of this health advocacy cum evaluation programme includes Dr. Nasir Ali Choudhary (Cardiologist) and Dr. Dhaneshwar Kapoor. Paramedics and volunteers include Kamal Sharma, Raghav Rajput, Mohd. Altaf, Gourav Heera, Rajinder Singh, Sandeep Kohli, Gourav Sharma, Aman Gupta, Vikas Kumar, Maninder Singh, Vinayak Sharma, Anmol Singh and Raj Kumar.
