1cr people carry Hepatitis B virus

About one crore people in Bangladesh are the carriers of chronic
Hepatitis B virus that causes serious liver problem.
Patients who carry HBsAg for more than six months are vulnerable to
liver cirrhosis and cancer.

This was disclosed by experts at a motivation and awareness workshop
on ' Chronic Hepatitis B is a curse' in the city on Thursday.

Bangladesh Association for Prevention and Treatment of Liver Diseases
(BAPTRELD) organised the workshop.

Presided over by Al Amin, president of BAPTRELD, the workshop was
conducted by Consultant Pathologist Dr Bandana Chakravarty.

Eminent Liver specialist Dr Mahbub H Khan presented a keynote paper at
the workshop.

He said symptoms of liver disease might not be visible in most of the
infected people. So everyone should get his blood tested for taking
necessary vaccine.

"It is a good news that 15 to 65 per cent of chronic Hepatitis B
patients could be cured as a result of the test", he added.

Al Amin said number of liver disease patients in our country is
gradually increasing. This killer virus should be resisted

Personal hygiene can prevent liver diseases: physicians

A significant proportion of liver diseases are preventable by
improving personal hygiene and sanitation, physicians told a symposium
on Thursday.

'To increase people's awareness is very important to improve the
personal hygiene and sanitation which can help to combat some liver
diseases,' said the health and family welfare adviser, Sufia Rahman,
while addressing the inaugural ceremony as the chief guest.

About 7.5 per cent of people in Bangladesh carries Hepatitis-B
virus which is one of common causes for liver disease, she said adding
that about 150,000 newborn children are infected with Hepatitis-B
every year and at least 20,000 die of the infections.

Sufia said the government had introduced vaccination programme from
April 2003 against Hepatitis-B virus for the children under one with
the assistance of the Global Alliance for Vaccination and

Hepatitis B and C can be transmitted through blood transfusion so
safe blood transfusion is very essential to prevent the viruses. The
Association for Study of the Liver, Bangladesh organised the daylong
symposium on 'liver diseases' at Sheraton Hotel. About 1,500 local and
foreign physicians attended.

Chaired by the association president, Professor Mobin Khan, the
function was addressed, among others, by BSMMU vice-chancellor
Professor MA Hadi, BMA secretary general AZM Zahid Hossain and ASLB
secretary general Nooruddin Ahmad.

One lakh children die of diarrhoea a year

Over one lakh children die of diarrhoeal diseases in the country every
year and children under five are the most vulnerable to diarrhoea,
said the experts and physicians at a function in the port city

They said in the backdrop of such a situation, the new medicine 'Baby
Zinc Tablet' has come as a great relief to millions of parents that
works as magic to the treatment of diarrhoea in addition to ORS (oral
saline) and to the prevention of its frequency.

The function was organised by The Acme Laboratories Ltd at a local
hotel to launch the tablet in Chittagong Division on Sunday night.

The speakers said when diarrhoea sucks out from body water, salt, zinc
and other minerals, ORS fills up the dehydration and baby zinc treats
the diarrhoea effectively.

"Following researches at ICDDR,B and other international reputed labs,
the health ministry as per recommendations of World Health
Organisation (WHO) and UNICEF, has approved the use of baby zinc as an
addition to ORS during the treatment of children aged between six
months and five years," they added.

Some experts suggested inclusion of vitamin A with ORS and baby zinc
in the treatment of diarrhoea to get optimal result.

Head of paediatrics department of Chittagong Medical College and
Hospital (CMCH) Prof Dr Chowdhury B Mahmud was present as chief at the
launching ceremony chaired by Md Rafiqul Islam, director (marketing
and sales) of the Acme Laboratories Ltd.

Dr Azharul Islam Khan of ICDDR,B, Prof Dr Nurul Islam Khan of
Chittagong Maa-O-Shishu General Hospital and Medical College, Dr Abdul
Jalil, civil surgeon of Chittagong, Dr Moin Uddin Ahmed, associate
professor of CMCH paediatrics department, and noted TV personality

House, addressed the ceremony.

70,000 die of TB a year - Speakers tell workshop
Bss, Rangpur

Speakers at a daylong workshop said about 70,000 people die of
tuberculosis (TB) a year --one in every 10 minutes -- and one gets
infected in every two minutes in the country.

They said tuberculosis is a completely curable disease and the number
of both the death and the patients could be reduced to a great extent
by ensuring proper awareness about the disease among the people.

The workshop was held at the office of Rangpur-Dinajpur Rural Service
(RDRS) at Hatibandha in Lalmonirhat on Thursday. RDRS organised the
workshop under its Social Health Project to create mass awareness
about tuberculosis and the latest treatment method adopted for
controlling the disease.

RDRS Trainer (TB-Leprosy) Moshiur Rahman presided over the workshop
with Upazila Health and Family Planning Officer Dr Noim Uddin as chief

Medical Officer Dr Ramzan Ali, UP Chairman Abdus Sattar, Osman Goni
and Bahar Uddin, RDRS Assistant Manager (Health) Mohon Barman, UP
members, local elite, professionals, imams, purohits, journalists and
community leaders were present in the workshop, among others.

The speakers at the discussion introduced the participants about the
Direct Observation and Treatment on Spot (DOTS) method, recently
adopted at national level, and pointed out different reasons behind
the infection of tuberculosis disease.

The sources said, under the DOTS programme, the voluntary medical
teams will visit home to detect TB patients and will provide them with
free treatments if they were detected as TB patient. The people can
also get the treatment at different TB treatment and testing centres
set up at several parts of the country. United Nations is assisting
the programme, the sources said.

The speakers also stressed the need for cooperation from all quarters
of the society to make the people aware of the treatment of the
disease for eradicating the disease from the country within the
shortest possible time.

screen vulgar films through TV sets. Many customers throng these
stalls to enjoy these films.

Deep at night x-rated films are shown by the stall owners realising
extra money from the customers. They include students, drivers of
mechanised transports, rickshaw pullers and day labours.

headquarters and village markets across the district. Cassettes of
obscene and blue films are readily available at these shops.

Tea export drops by 47pc
By Nurul Alam . Chittagong

Bangladesh's tea exports dropped by 47 per cent with a loss in
earnings by 273 million taka in 2006 compared with previous year,
official reports said.

Bangladesh's tea output also declined by about 12 per cent in 2006
due to a severe draught that hit most of its tea plantations, the
official reports added.

In 2006 Bangladesh, a traditional tea growing country, fetched
469.59 million taka by exporting 4.79 million kilograms of tea as
against 742.62 million taka by exporting 9 million kilograms in 2005,
according to official reports received here.

A senior official of state owned Bangladesh Tea Board said, 'Our
tea exports fell due to shortage in production, high demand for
internal consumption and price hike'.

'Export buyers could not compete with internal buyers who paid
higher price in the auction markets,' he said adding that supply of
tea to the auction markets slumped as the production declined by 7
million kilograms in 2006.

He informed that in 2006 the tea output was recorded at 53 million
kilograms, down from 60 million kilograms produced in 2005.

Auction market sources said that price of tea jumped to Tk 104 per
kilogram on average in 2006, from Tk 78 per kilogram on average a year

Some good quality tea varieties were sold in the auctions in 2006
between Tk 130 to Tk 150 per kilogram, market sources added.

Former chairman of Tea Traders Association of Bangladesh, a body of
tea exporters, Feroz Ahmed, said, 'Our exports were hampered in 2006
due to fall in production. We could not get enough tea as the draught
hit the tea gardens'.

'Even we failed to meet the demand of our big buyer Pakistan with
which we signed a special agreement for duty-free access in 2002 to
supply 10 million kilograms of tea,' he added.
