The Cabinet today approved a proposal for a comprehensive multi pronged strategy for the prevention and control of Japanese Encephalitis (JE) and Acute Encephalitis Syndrome (AES).

            The proposal of the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare for the implementation of the intervention/activities recommended by the Group of Ministers (GoM) for prevention and control of Japanese Encephalitis (JE) / Acute Encephalitis Syndrome (AES) will be implemented in 60 priority districts for a period of 5 years from 2012-13 to 2016-17 by the Ministries of Health & Family Welfare, Drinking Water & Sanitation, Social Justice & Empowerment, Housing & Urban Poverty Alleviation and Women & Child Development. Focussed interventions will be done in five States namely Assam, Bihar, Tamil Nadu, Uttar Pradesh and West Bengal.

            The major activities include public health interventions, expansion of JE vaccination, improved case management, medical and social rehabilitation, improved provisions of drinking water and sanitation in rural and urban areas and improved nutrition.

            The Cabinet approved the implementation of interventions/activities for JE/AES for the following Ministries out of the budget available during the 12lh Plan. Ministry-wise estimated costs of interventions/activities as approved by the Cabinet are summarized below:

            The implementation of the proposal will substantially reduce the cases of JE through strengthening of JE vaccination and vector control. It will also reduce AES cases by checking the transmission of entero-virus in children through the supply of safe drinking water and enhanced nutritional status of children. This will also reduce burden of disabilities due to AES in young children.

Background:

      With the approval of the Prime Minister of India, a Group of Ministers (GoM) was constituted to evolve a multi-pronged strategy encompassing preventive, case management and rehabilitation measures to address the problems relating to Japanese Encephalitis (JE)/ Acute Encephalitis Syndrome (AES). The members of GoM included Minister of Health and Family Welfare, Minister of Urban Development, Minister of Social Justice & Empowerment, Minister of Rural Development, Minister of Drinking Water & Sanitation and Minister of State (Independent Charge) of the Ministry of Women & Child Development. Vice Chairman, National Disaster Management Authority (NDMA) was included as a Special Invitee.
