Further the Government data shows that 50 percent of road traffic deaths in India could have been prevented, had the injured received first aid within the first hour after the accident. However, many accident victims are unable to access timely care and prevent further disability due to the lack of first aid medical care & emergency medical services in many parts of the country especially in rural area of the India .
The primary reason why many people die on the side of the street waiting for help is because the first aid care is not being addressed as effectively According to the World Health Organization (WHO), nearly 5.8 crore people are dying due to heart stroke in the world in a year. In the past decade alone, more than 5 million Indians have been severely injured or are now living with a disability from road traffic accidents.We are also devoted to save the lives of the rural people from any accident or sudden illness by providing first aid and advice through its first aid provider/ rural health advisor as we know. In the past decade alone, more than 5 million Indians have been severely injured or are now living with a disability from road traffic accidents.
Villagers and general public are often the first to respond to a road traffic accident and could play a vital role in supporting accident victims and fill the gap in India’s emergency response system. But many of them lack of the first-aid skills needed to stabilize a patient until an ambulance arrives.
Emergency medical care and first aid care is still evolving in India and there’s still a long way to go. The primary reason why many people die on the side of the street waiting for help is because the first aid care is not being addressed as effectively According to the World Health Organization (WHO), nearly 5.8 crore people are dying due to heart stroke in the world in a year.
Doctors and the public need to acquire knowledge on CPR, a method under first aid medical care and emergency procedure to restore spontaneous blood circulation and breathing for a patient, during cardiac arrest. That could save many lives And in many cases like… heat stoke, snake bite, animal bite, unconsciousness etc. the lives of the general persons can be save if within time first aid care is given to the injured or patient.
It has been seen in rural area of the India that due to lack of awareness the general peoples get infected from many communicable diseases like Kalra, Influenza, Diarrhea, Typhoid, Malaria, Smallpox, measles, and common and seasonal diseases, many misconception amongst people about human health in the society, such as blood donation, family planning, breastfeeding, leprosy, vaccination, pulse polio, superstition etc. which become dangerous to the lives and at most of the time the death occurs due the said simple diseases and misconception, at the end due to improper care and treatment at early stage.
To improve the prevailing situation, the problem of rural health is to be addressed both at macro (national and state) and micro (district and regional) levels. This is to be done in an holistic way, with a genuine effort to bring the poorest of the population to the centre of the fiscal policies. A paradigm shift from the current ‘biomedical model’ to a ‘socio cultural model’, which should bridge the gaps and improve quality of rural life, is the current need.
The Indian Rural Medical Council is continuously trying to the save the lives of the people by providing advice at primary level so as the people get aware about the said disease through its volunteer/ members/ rural health advisor in the rural area of the India.
