 IAP Kerala State President’s Message

001

I place on record my sincere gratitude to all fellow IAPians for the confidence bestowed on me and for the opportunity given to me to serve IAP. My predecessors at the State and National level have put a foot print in the journey of IAP to be remembered and cherished forever.

I put forward the ‘Three Point Agenda’ and seek your blessings and active participation to achieve the same.

  1. Sustain all the old and new National and State Level Programmes like Village adoption, NSSK, Mission Indradhanush, Mission  Kishore  Uday, Nutrition Education Programme, Immunization Card at School entry, D.I.E.T programme, EDP programme, protection against Child abuse, Village adoption in partnership with the respective MPs, HOPE  and so on
  2. Scale up IAP membership to include all medical college faculty, postgraduate students and practicing pediatricians and also to increase voting percentage
  3. Strive hard and attain 3-4 point reduction in IMR from the stagnant 12 to hit single digit

I propose the ‘Three Pronged Approach’ to pledge our commitment to the children of Kerala & India and to ‘hit’ the target through team work.

  1. H- Healthy eating, Healthy Lifestyle & Hygiene,
  2. I- Immunization, Interaction & early Intervention
  3. T- Tame TV & e-media, Tackle alcohol & substance abuse & Terminate child abuse, neglect & child labor

To ‘HIT the bull’s eye, is to hit hard, hit early and hit before it is too late’ and also ensure active participation, celebrate success, take the right path coping up failures if any and converting challenges into opportunities.

IAP shall also bring forth a book for parents in Malayalam entitled ‘ Ponnomanakalkayi Snehapoorvam IAPkuvendi’, discussing the finer aspects in the HIT strategy

IAP Kerala is also planning to make short films on immunization, myths and facts in child care as well.

Please give your views and inputs.

I wish Dr K Shibu and his team a fruitful year ahead. Let us use our IAP website as a platform for creative interaction, learning and dissemination of knowledge

  • Motto* ‘ Team work for success’
  • Vision* ‘Enhancing quality of survival’
  • Mission* ‘Ensuring survival’

Let us join hands together and pledge our commitment to the children of Kerala & children of India at large as ‘Team IAP’

 

“Team = Together Each Achieve More’

Jai  IAP                                                                                                                                                                  Jai Hind
