'Every child is an asset for the nation'

Parents and guardians take part in the inaugural function of Newborn Children’s Week at the district hospital in Madikeri.

District RCH Officer Dr Nilesh said parents should take special care of their children’s health because each and every child is an asset to the country.

He was speaking at the inaugural function of Newborn Children’s Week organised by Kodagu Institute of Medical Sciences at the maternity and children’s ward at the district hospital.

Healthy children are an integral part of a healthy society, said Dr Nilesh.

District surgeon Dr Jagadish said special care should be taken while feeding newborns. “It is important for the mothers to know the food requirement of children according to their age,” he advised.

District Hospital senior paediatrician Dr Krishnananda felt for a need to take necessary steps to bring down infant mortality rate.

Kodagu Institute of Medical Sciences Paediatrics Department Head Dr Purushottam, Dr Shivraj and Dr Kiran were present at the function.
