Partnering Mediker through this effort is School Health Annual Report Programme (SHARP), committed to safeguarding the health of school children. Thus, SHARP is conducting hygiene and lice checks in every school in Haryana so as to ensure that every girl child in Haryana is declared free of lice. 55 schools have been covered so far and Ryan International School, Faridabad is the 56th.

In the pursuance of Health awareness programmes in school children we got an opportunity to make our operations in Haryana in collaboration with Marico Industries Ltd, Mumbai to conduct free Hygiene Check-up Programme in school children between the age group of 5 to 12 years (Classes III to VIII). During hygiene check-up, the following things are inspected for:
i) Hair Hygiene ii) Dental Hygiene iii) Nail Hygiene iv) Nape Hygiene v) Ear Hygiene. The survey report of all these parameters will be made available after the completion of Ist Phase of the programme. During the survey it has been found that very few children are conscious about the good personal hygiene, which is the basic of leading a good healthy life.

To inculcate good Hygiene habits amongst children in Haryana, we have chosen Hisar, Faridabad & Panipat in our Phase-I Programme wherein we are conducting free Hygiene Check-up Programme in schools of Hisar, Faridabad & Panipat District. Later on all the districts of Haryana will be covered under this. We have already completed our programme in schools of Hisar and the programme is still going on in schools of Faridabad and Panipat.

An important aspect of first aid, besides knowing what to do for a victim, is also knowing what not to do. The objective of the training is to familiarize the school children with basic first aid techniques in some common emergencies. They learn what first aid is, what it can accomplish and measures to take for the treatment of shock, bleeding, burns, and fractures; methods of resuscitation; and methods of moving injured persons.

Objectives of First Aid

The knowledge of first aid measures and their proper application may mean the difference between life and death, between rapid recovery and long hospitalization, or between temporary disability or permanent injury.

The objectives of first aid are to save lives and prevent further injury. However, first aid is not a substitute for proper medical treatment.
