Japanese Encephalitis/Acute Encephalitis Syndrome (JE/AES) Management in UP
The Progressive Foundation Team worked with UP Government, PATH and Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation to set up an expert group on JE/AES. Focusing on seven most affected districts of Gorakhpur and Basti divisions in UP, the team is working closely with the government and field staff to address the problem of JE/AES. We are focusing on prevention and vaccination on one hand and setting up a remodeled treatment system in the most affected regions. The Foundation is also working with the state government in running public awareness campaign in districts of Gorakhpur and Basti divisions to make communities aware about how to prevent Japanese Encephalitis and how to immediately reach out to the state health system at the first symptoms of the disease. Progressive Foundation has organized many health camps in different parts in the state of UP.
