Chandigarh 06th July:- Indian Immunologicals Limited (IIL), the market leader in veterinary biologicals and one of the largest animal & human health players in India today organized free Vaccination Camps in over 100 centres across the country.
IIL is a “One Health” company providing world class vaccines for the control of various zoonotic diseases. Every year 6th of July is observed as “Zoonosis Day” and many Veterinary dispensaries, NGOs and Veterinarians across the country conduct Rabies awareness camps with the help of IIL.

Diseases that transmit from animals to human beings are called Zoonotic diseases. 70%of all emerging diseases that affect humans are zoonotic in nature. In India, occurrence of Rabies is prevalent and accounts formore than 90% of all zoonotic cases reported in the country. India accounts for more a significant number of rabies deaths reported worldwide. The economic cost of dog mediated rabies has been estimated to be $ 8.6 billion. The high incidence of rabies in India is due to large uncontrolled stray dog population in India. Stray dogs account for nearly 80% of the canine population in India. There are several reasons for the high incidence including poor vaccination. Prophylaxis through vaccination is the most cost-effective intervention to reduce incidence of disease. Several countries have been able to reduce the number of rabies related human deaths through vaccination of dogs.
Other Zoonotic diseases such as Brucellosis, Leptospirosis, Swine Flu, Porcine Cysticercosis, Nipah, Zika etc. also affecthuman beings. Awareness, accurate diagnosis, improvement in sanitary conditions, prophylactic vaccination are all measures that need to be taken to restrain/eradicate spread.
Indian Immunologicals Limited (a subsidiary company of National Dairy Development Board) is leading biologicals manufacturer. Through extensive research, the company has delivered affordable vaccines for the consumers in India. IIL continues to be a leading manufacturer of animal rabies vaccine (Raksharab) and human rabies vaccine (Abhayrab) in the country. IIL’s CYSVAX is the world’s first vaccine for Porcine Cysticercosis in Pigs. Cysticercosis is a very important zoonotic disease and it is understood that it is a prime cause of epilepsy in humans. Vaccinating Pigs against Porcine Cysticercosis can help significantly reduce the incidence of epilepsy in humans.
Speaking on the occasion of World Zoonosis Day, Dr. K.Anand Kumar, MD, Indian Immunologicals Limited said that IIL is truly a One Health company, playing a significant role in providing cost effective tools for the control of various zoonotic diseases in the country including the dreaded Rabies. Working with various other stake holders including the common public, IIL is determined to eradicate disease.
IIL wishes to spread the message that preventive vaccinationis a proven and cost-effective means to minimize incidence of zoonotic diseases. Effective implementation of “Swachh Bharat” programme and preventive vaccination would vastly improve the health status of the country.

By Tricitynews

Media and film industry, often known as the mirror of the society, has already commented upon the drug menace. It’s time that the youth stands against the problem and starts a war that brings it to an end. Beant Singh Bhullar, Manjinder Singh Bhullar and Rupinder Singh Bhullar started their journey on 30th of June have finally reached their destination Chandigarh. All three of them, had started the ‘Drug Awareness March’ from Hussainiwala, Ferozpur. They will complete their whole march on foot to the Chief Minister office in Chandigarh in a bid to meet Captain Amrinder Singh. Although, fighting the drug menace was a key point in the ruling party’s manifesto, no step has been taken in the direction yet. And with an increase in fatalities due to overdose, Beant Singh Bhullar started this movement to make people aware of the repercussions of drug usage, not only on the health of the addict but the emotional turmoil his near and dear ones go through.
Talking about ‘Drug Awareness March’, Beant Singh Bhullar said that recently, a video of a kid wailing on his father’s dead body had gone viral. The man had succumbed to drug overdose. It was a heartwrenching spectacle which we all watched on the internet and forgot. But he could not. He wanted the world to realise that this issue needs instant reaction and solution.  He further added that Government had promised that they will fight against drug menace in Punjab, once in power. His war is not against the government. But against the laziness of our officials, who do not even remember their promise.
Rupinder Singh Bhullar shared that it is our way to wake them up and request them to take a stringent step. Punjab has had such a rich history but now it is blotted with this illness. We are marching on foot to the CM house to show our solidarity with the government in waking up the youth of the state. People around Punjab came and joined us against this problem. We are thankful to each and every person who supported us throughout our journey.
At the same time Manjinder Bhullar said that since childhood we have heard about this problem. Everybody is putting blame on someone else. But practically they are not taking any step to eradicate it. This is our small effort to bring the problem of drug addiction in Punjab to a halt.
Beant, Manjinder and Rupinder set out on the paidal yatra across Punjab and received immense support in his movement from the social media users.
