Health check-ups of all 1.6 lakh students

GOA: Health check-ups of all 1.6 lakh students, from classes I to VIII, were carried out in schools across Goa during the 2019-20 academic year, the state government has told the central government. The check-ups are carried out under the national school helth programme.

Under the programme, the directorate of health services (DHS) must also provide micro- nutrients, vitamin A, iron and folic acid tablets and de-worming medicine to children. It is also required to record parameters like height and weight of all the school students.

The state government has told the centre that under the Rashtriya Bal Swathaya Karyakram all the 1.6 lakh students have been provided deworming tablets. Another 1.3 lakh students were provided iron and folic acid tablets and 949 students were provided with spectacles. None of the students were given the Vitamin A supplements.
