Viva health programme will be launched by the Government of Kerala

Kerala will be launching the “Viva Health” programme to tackle anaemia in women. Anaemia is a condition in which the body does not have enough healthy red blood cells to transport oxygen to its tissues. Anaemia is characterised by a low haemoglobin count in the body, which causes an individual to become ill, tired, and weak until the blood is recovered. There are a lot of variants with long-term and short-term defects. Treatment of the same requires several measures to be taken with the proper medical experts. The most common reason for avoiding food, diets, and unhealthy habits is that they can lead to severe, life-threatening illness, as indicated by the symptoms. The symptoms might be things like fatigue, weakness, shortness of breath, chest pain, headaches, etc. Anaemia has more than one cause; if it is found to be rectified, consulting the respective doctors as soon as possible is suggested.

The departments of Health, Women and Child Development, and Local Self-Governance are coordinating accordingly and will be implementing it shortly. The Kerala State Government is to launch a major initiative to focus on women’s health based on the National Family Health Survey report that anaemia is developing as a disease among more women.

The government is preparing to launch “Vilarchayil Ninnu Valarchayilekku” (ViVa) from anaemia to growth, as suggested by the State Planning Board, in the upcoming year 2024. The decision and initiative to implement this programme are to tackle iron deficiency anaemia, an issue that affects a lot of women’s health. A meeting was also held early in this month, chaired by the present Chief Minister of Kerala, Pinarayi Vijayan. The government also considers including the VIVA programme in the next financial budget of the state, which benefits everyone.
