  • National Programme Name: Programme for Prevention and Control of Leptospirosis (PPCL)

Email ID of Programme: ppcl.ncdc@gmail.com

Officer In Charge: Dr. Simmi Tiwari

 

Background:

To address the rising burden of Leptospirosis, the Govt. of India launched a Pilot Project on Prevention and Control of Leptospirosis as a “New Initiative” under XI Five-year Plan. The Strategy adopted in the Pilot Project was found to be feasible and reproducible. With the lessons learnt in the Pilot Project the Govt. of India has launched the Programme for Prevention and Control of Leptospirosis during 12th Five-year plan in the endemic States/UTs (5 States& 1 UT) viz. Gujarat, Kerala, Tamil Nadu, Maharashtra, Karnataka and UT of Andaman & Nicobar Island. SFC approval for the program was obtained on 15.07.2013 with total budget outlay of Rs.3.753 Crores for the plan period.

Based on epidemiological analysis of IDSP data it is evident that cases are being regularly reported from States such as Uttar Pradesh, Assam, Goa and UTs of Dadra Nagar Haveli, Daman & Diu other than programme States which were identified during 12th five-year plan hence programme was expanded to other 3 States and 1 UTS. Currently the programme is being implemented in 10 States/UTs (7 States and 3 UTs) in total 114 district. The programme is now approved under SFC for FY 2021-22 under the Scheme F of NCDC Umbrella Scheme.

Objective:  Reduction of morbidity and mortality due to Leptospirosis.

Strategies:

  1. Development of trained manpower for Leptospirosis diagnosis, case management, prevention &control, and inter-sectoral coordination
  2. Strengthening surveillance of Leptospirosis in human.
  3. Strengthen diagnostic capacity of laboratory in Endemic States.
  4. Create awareness regarding timely detection and appropriate treatment of patients.
  5. Advocacy for strengthening of patient management facilities in States for improving the preparedness at all levels for managing.
  6. Strengthening inter-sectoral coordination at State and district level for outbreak detection, prevention, and control of Leptospirosis

 

Implementation of the Programme:

11 endemic State and District level activities of the program are being implemented through the National Health mission since FY 2019-20.

Activities Include-

  • Procurement of drugs, diagnostic kits, supplies for management of Leptospirosis cases.
  • Development of trained manpower for Leptospirosis diagnosis, case management, prevention and control and inter-sectoral coordination
  • IEC/BCC- Create awareness regarding timely detection and appropriate treatment of patients.

To address the need of dedicated National Programme in India to to estimate incidence, mortality, morbidity, and economic burden due to snakebite envenoming burden and to make snakebite envenoming a notifiable disease, the Mission Steering Group (MSG) of NHM approved the inclusion of activities for Prevention and Control of Snake Bites at District and State level under existing components of NHM in activities i.e., training of medical officer/health workers, surveillance and monitoring, meetings for advocacy and intersectoral coordination and IEC activities per existing PIP matrix under NHM. Also, a separate FMR code SI. No. 200 in current year 2023-24 have been issued by NHM for undertaking dedicated activities for snakebite prevention and control. Further strengthening of surveillance for snakebite envenoming is being done through IHIP. Subsequently appointment of state nodal officers for prevention and control of snakebite envenoming has been initiated and so far, nineteen State Nodal officers have been nominated from different states and UTs.

 

The major initiatives proposed to be undertaken for mitigating the challenges of Snakebite envenoming in India are as follows –

 

  1. Strengthening of Surveillance of Snakebite through Integrated Health Information Platform (IHIP)
  2. Capacity building of medical professionals
  • Development of Regional venom centers based on prevalent snake species to assure quality Anti Snake Venom across all regions.
  1. Addressing the legislative issues of anti-snake venom collection
  2. Digital Mapping and Monitoring of facilities with availability of anti-snake venom for ensuring prompt and effective management of snakebite cases.
  3. Community outreach activities to spread awareness about snakebite prevention and management.

 

  • Function as WHO Collaborative Center Rabies Epidemiology with following objectives:

 

  • To provide training in the fields of Rabies epidemiology and to collect and analyze rabies surveillance data and to distribute the information to collaborating institutes.
