Seasonal febrile illnesses have a high prevalence in India. One of the major challenges in this area is the delay in diagnosis and treatment which can further lead to severe complications. Raising awareness among the general public about timely management can help in averting complications.
Speaking about this, Mr. Bhavesh Kumar Vaishnav, Marketing Manager, Alkem Laboratories, said, “We are happy to undertake this landmark initiative with support from the IJCP Group. Apart from trying to enter the Limca Book of World Records, the idea is also to raise awareness on the causes and symptoms of fever and what can be done. Seasonal febrile illnesses are one of the major causes of hospital admissions in India. This programme will help people undertake timely diagnosis and management.”
Adding further, Mr. Nilesh Aggarwal, CEO, IJCP Group & Founder Medtalks.in, said, “We tend to dismiss fever as something very normal and many people indulge in self-medication. However, it is important to understand that a fever may have underlying causes and further health implications if not diagnosed and treated appropriately. We are happy to support Alkem Laboratories in this initiative to create a new record in training patients as also generating awareness on seasonal febrile illnesses.”
The scheduled date for the record attempt is July 25th, 2019.
