Health card mission for migrant labour fails

Kozhikode: When diseases, which we had eradicated, made their comeback, the health department attributed it to migrant labour as carriers. A comprehensive health card after a rigorous medical inspection was recommended by healthcare professionals, since this segment was increasingly prone to diseases. This mission needed the combined efforts of the ministries of Labour, Health, Local Self Government and Home. But lack of coordination among the departments and paucity of funds led to the project falling through halfway. Corporation health Standing Committee chairperson Janamma Kunjunni laments that there is no system in place to monitor the living conditions of this wretched lot.
