Lucknow: India has the largest number of stunted (46.6 million) and wasted (25.5 million) children in the world. Because of this, the crisis of diseases keeps on deepening in the country. National Family Health Survey-4 data shows that even today more than half of the children (51%) are stunted and underweight (49%) in the lowest income group families.

Uttar Pradesh has been considered at the top in increasing these figures in the country. However, by 2022, the target of overcoming malnutrition is also of the state government. Health experts are also worried about this and the neonatal procedure is also very sensitive, which requires a lot of caution. There are many processes in this, regarding which more and more information reaches everywhere, that is why a press conference was organized today.

Dr. Akash Pandita, Associate Director and Head of Neonatology, at Medanta Hospital, Lucknow said that the NICU procedure comes in the neonatal procedure, which has to be done very carefully and during this time many medical problems can also arise. In this workshop, training will be given on these procedures and their different types. We at Medanta do this workshop every year and this year we will have around 40 to 50 health experts from different countries like Australia, UK, and many cities participating.

He said that today we have to move forward together in neonatal care and there cannot be progress in any one center, so we all have to come forward together, We want every small and big center can also get help, they can implement this procedure. So that they can get trained and that's why we have ordered demi equipment so that they can get training in a real experience.
 
In this workshop to be held on the 26th and 27th of August, the lack of awareness of the people in the field of Neonatology and the topics of neonatal medical science, technology, and research will be discussed with training. The conclave will also have health experts, researchers, and several eminent leaders including UP Health Minister Brajesh Pathak and Dr Rakesh Kapoor, Medical Director of Dr Medanta Hospital as chief guests. In this, doctors from every small and big center coming from many places will be given training and various issues will also be discussed.
