A study of oro-dental disorder in the area of Rural Health Training Centre, Naila (Jaipur).
DC Jain
October-December 1989, 33(4):183-8
A door to door survey on oro-dental disorders was carried out in four villages of the field practice area of Rural Health Training Centre, Naila (Jaipur), covering a population of 1384 in the age group of 6 years and above. A total of 81 (5.85 per cent) of the examined population had malocclusion, and its relationship with age was found to be significant (P less than 0.01). A highly significant (P less than 0.001) increase was observed in oral-mucosal and dental disorder with advance in age. Among the dental disorders, dental caries was most common, affecting 15.32 per cent of the total population followed by fluorosis (1.66 per cent), attrition of teeth (0.94) per cent) and supernumerary (0.58 per cent). A statistically highly significant (p less than 0.001) difference was observed in prevalence of attrition, dental fluorosis and caries with age. The facts accumulated during the survey bring out vividly the need to apply the growing knowledge on orodental health. The need is not only for treatment, but also prevention and education about oral hygiene.

A study of social health and physical function of government retirees in Delhi.
DK Taneja, AS Nalwa
October-December 1989, 33(4):170-5
Education and income-wise retirees were better than an average Indian. However they had still to fulfil certain financial obligations involving heavy expenditures. Family setting continued to play important part in their daily lives. Their perceived level of utility towards society (95.32%) was high and drug habits were not a problem. Functionally majority had productive capacity. As a strategy to keep dependent population at low levels, it was very much possible to utilise their services as not only they were functionally capable but they were also educated and had work experience. The existing family set up should be encouraged and maintained by all possible means and trends seen in developed countries prevented so as to keep our elderly socially, psychologically and emotionally healthy. This will reduce the need for geriatric institutions.

SP Mukhopadhyay
October-December 1989, 33(4):195-7
Indices of child health status were compared for 2 British areas with similar population structure but different history of health education. Croydon in the south has had a health education unit since 1958, and has 5 times the health education expenditures currently. In contrast St. Helens began its health education services in 1975. Expenditures per capita average 9.6 P in Croydon, va 2.0 P in St. Helens (1974). The health status indices reported by the 2 areas were: live birth rate 12.9 in Croydon, va. 14.7 for St. Helens;, nervous system birth defects 3.9 vs 8.3; congenital birth defect rate 32.7 vs 33.8; stillbirth rate 10.5 vs. 13.2; low birth weight 65.9 vs. 71.2; infant mortality rate 16.2 vs. 21.3; polio and DPT immunization 80% vs. 40%.
