Taming the killer Acute Encephalitis outbreaks: Challenges and ideas

Each year as monsoon-bearing clouds arrive over eastern Uttar Pradesh, so does a pestilence. Hundreds, mostly children, fall ill with fever, convulsions, and disorientation. So familiar are people with these symptoms that at the first signs they rush their children to BRD Medical College Hospital, Gorakhpur. Few other hospitals in the eastern Uttar Pradesh region either have the doctors or the equipment to handle this affliction. And so, the journey of children from nearly 15 districts around Gorakhpur ends at the biggest hospital in these parts.The biggest problem, however, isn’t lack of beds, doctors or ventilators. It is the lack of diagnosis. Nobody at the hospital knows what causes the outbreak year after year.

  • Can information systems contribute to the solution?
  • Why did the State Government and CDC turn to HISP/DHI2 for support/solution?
  • How do DHIS2 functionalities become part of the solution?
