BtoBs New Hope Marketing Services

first_imgHowever, most smaller publishers don’t have the war chest for six marketing acquisitions (or spending $350 million on a digital agency the way Hearst did for iCrossing). For them, entering marketing services requires a mix of in-house development and strategic partnering. Northstar Travel Media last month announced a marketing solutions division based around two internal staffers (a VP of marketing solutions in former TravelAge West publisher Michelle Rosenberg and a dedicated project manager), and a strategic tech partner in Decision Counsel to execute programs. The Northstar Marketing Solutions group will focus on five key areas of client support: technology platforms, events, research, creative services and social media management. “In the middle of last year, the executive team at Northstar looked at how we were handling marketing services within each individual brand,” says Rosenberg. “We found some synergies and opportunities to expand the range of services. That combined with investments we made in different assets—content, tech or research—allows us to look for cross-brand opportunities and delve into areas outside traditional media and marketing.” The Marketing Solutions Group has the potential to be a $2 million to $3 million business within two to three years, according to Rosenberg. Like Northstar, many publishers are taking services they’ve historically offered as standalones (custom publishing, Web site development, lead gen) to the next level under the umbrella of a dedicated group. While publishers can tap existing resources and brand-related salespeople can funnel prospects to marketing services, it’s a different enough business in terms of sales cycles, lead times and tech development that a separate approach is warranted. “Because it’s so heavily custom, we don’t walk in with a line card,” says Rosenberg “We say, here are our capabilities, what needs do you have? The biggest difference between pitching product advertising is a much longer cycle. These are complicated products.”Summit Media Group also debuted a new dedicated custom media group (“custom publishing” is increasingly becoming a description that marketers can’t relate to—hence the rise of “marketing solutions”) with seven full-time people and multiple freelancers. Summit is looking at an investment of several hundred thousand dollars “to move from where we are to where we want to be in the next six months to a year,” says vice president and group publisher Joe Angel. Summit takes a minimum quarterly retainer of $2,200 (which can go up to $7,000 or $8,000), but prices vary widely for its turnkey content creation services.Many of the services now falling under the umbrella of “marketing solutions” have previously been offered as value-added. “We need to change the nature of free with things like copywriting, consulting, white papers and surveys,” says Dave Newcorn, vice president of digital and custom media at Summit Media Group. “We charged one client $7,500 to put together a survey and send it. In any other kind of work, that’s consulting.” Summit came up with a price calculator that deducts hard costs but also incentivizes salespeople to sell high. Part of getting the new custom group off the ground was a “lunch & learn” campaign in which Newcorn and his group visited 108 customers in 15 cities, explaining the concept of lead nurturing. The publisher also did research identifying four stages of the buying process and what solutions to offer. They include: Stage 1: Status quo—No projects. Customers should be addressed with best practices and industry trends. Stage 2: Discovery—The customer knows they need a project but isn’t sure what to do. Here, white papers and Webinars are applicable. Stage 3: Vendor selection. Here Summit presents customer testimonials, assessment tools in which prospects can enter data and increasing use of video. “For our market, they want to see the machines in action,” says Newcorn. Stage 4: Short list. Vendor comparison charts. “Here, they need something downloadable,” says Newcorn. “A chart indicates they’re pretty far down the path. A boardroom PowerPoint is something junior execs can show to more senior, maybe less tech-savvy execs.”The Summit proposal package includes a kick-off meeting with the content creators, written analysis and recommendations and a 12-month road map. “Now that we have the infrastructure to produce custom packages, we have to look at how we sell it,” says Newcorn.With so many publishers competing with each other (and with agencies) over marketing services, real commitment from both management and staff is required. “I believe success will be defined by a commitment of resources and consistent commitment of the initiative from the top management of the organization,” says Northstar CEO Tom Kemp. Marketing services may be more successful in organizations that focus on specific sectors and have leadership brands within those sectors, Kemp notes. “Sector focus provides much more leverage of content, databases, domain expertise and relationships with major suppliers,” he adds. “Sector concentration may be a reason that the early success has been with publishers such as IDG, Hanley Wood, and UBM.”NetWorld Alliance has been doing custom publications for so long (at least 12 years) that they’ve become part of 70 percent of all client sales, according to president Tom Harper. “Special reports, case studies and white papers are part of our core business, whereas video, research and Web development are truly ‘custom’ for us because they require different people to deliver them,” he adds. “We are formally adding these new custom services after a year or so of testing them. And I don’t mean just testing their effectiveness for our clients—but determining whether we can handle the new types of projects with current staff, and finding out which outsources are reliable.”The publisher is looking to partner with an agency. “Our goal is to find a single agency we can trust who becomes a pseudo-division of our company without having to buy them out,” says Harper. “We have to be smart about partnerships and margins. When you’re our size, the outsource is the key to making the whole custom thing work.”Are Marketing Services Viable?  At the ABM Annual Conference, Andy Goodenough, CEO of Summit Business Media and Scott Vaughan, chief marketing officer of UBM TechWeb, debated the viability of marketing services. Goodenough was representative of most of the b-to-b publishing world today—a company that’s seen dramatic changes to its business over the last few years (Summit Business Media just emerged from Chapter 11 bankruptcy)  and is taking stock of where to go next.UBM TechWeb, on the other hand, has embraced marketing services and undergone a major internal shift to provide those services.According to Goodenough, the original model for marketing services included these things:• Sell advertising• Track bingo card responses• Offer up surveys• List rental• PR opportunities• Reprint services• Ad Plaques• Sponsored supplementsAnd all the while, the sales executive is the principal entry point into the advertiser relationship. Now, however, the new model looks like this:• Digital advertising• Print advertising• Events• Webinars• Lead tracking• Research• Marketing data• E-mail messages• Custom marketingAnd the sales executive is still the principal entry point to the marketer relationship. “The new model,” Goodenough said, “looks a lot like the old model, except that the products are a little different.” Going forward, a key question is this, Goodenough said: “Are we media companies or marketing services agencies, and is there an orderly progression?”In his case study, Vaughan described his approach, which he calls “Marketing-as-a-Service.” In b-to-b media, he said, marketers now have a whole new array of ways to listen, engage and connect, and the challenge for media companies is to align with these shifts. Marketers expect performance with guaranteed metrics, he said. They want deeper integration of their media spend with ROI and revenue. They want a single point of accountability and they want expertise and efficiency.In 2011 and beyond, Vaughan said, b-to-b means no longer chasing customers and moving toward creating the next customer. Equally important, he said, is that media companies need to understand that it’s not about their own cool internal innovation, but rather, “what business my customers demand me to be in?”The way UBM TechWeb handles it, he said, is by looking at its business as two distinct units. The business information unit fuels insights into technology decision making. This includes education and conferences, research and analytics, Web sites, newsletters, magazines and the like. Marketing-as-a-service plays off the strength of the business information side and offers content development, communities, lead services and performance marketing. It guides buyers through a lead lifecycle and quantifies who makes which decisions. MaaS, Vaughan said, is not custom publishing, it’s not custom media, and it’s not integrated marketing. Instead, it’s a cluster of services built around four service areas and four distinct platforms. “For a fee, we’ll make your content perform better,” Vaughan said. “We call it MaaS because it keeps us focused on what business we’re in.”SIDEBARThe Return of ContentContent creation, long viewed as a cost center within traditional publishing, took some hard lumps in recent years, as the means of paying for that content—advertising dollars—eroded. The early days of digital media weren’t any better, as media companies quickly realized the revenue online just wasn’t enough to pay for content creation on any real scale. Aggregation, social media, user-generated content and licensing were looked at as ways to fill the content gap without breaking the bank (and still are). However, the rise of marketing services has made publishers once again realize the need for original, quality content—both in serving marketing clients and attracting those clients in the first place through the publisher’s core brands. “What’s interesting is [clients] want our expertise as content producers, not our audience,” says Dave Newcorn, vice president of digital and custom media at Summit Media.While publishers scramble to hire salespeople with an agency understanding of account management, agencies are looking for content experts. “You can’t have a social strategy without a content strategy,” says Tom Stein, president and founder of b-to-b agency Stein Rogan + Partners. “You can’t have a CRM strategy without a content strategy. Some days in my agency I feel as much like an editor as anything  else.” American Business Media’s Annual Meeting, held in early May, took a single theme approach around the topic of marketing services. While the core of marketing services is based on many things publishers already offer (content, data, lead gen), it’s also a different business with longer sales cycles, sometimes lower margins, and a different sales and editorial mentality. It’s the latest example of publishers “chasing new money in a hurry,” according to Mitch Rouda, president of e-media at Farm Journal Media. But publishers need to be wary of not just chasing yet another “answer” to the problem of crumbling traditional revenue models. In response to a FOLIO: article about content marketing last month [“The Content Marketing Revolution,” April 2011], Dan O’Connell president of agency Foodmix Marketing Communications said, “Publishers entering the agency world happens every decade with a different spin. It failed in the 80s, 90s and it will again. Why enter a business you don’t understand when your core business is bleeding? Wouldn’t a more powerful combination be for agencies and publishers to partner to meet the evolving needs of advertisers and their brands?”Entering the Marketing Services WorldFor some publishers, acquiring their way into marketing services (in March, Penton bought online marketing firm EyeTraffic Media) may be the best option. Referencing the development of Meredith Integrated Marketing, Tom Stein, president and founder of b-to-b agency Stein Rogan + Partners, said it was based on six acquisitions and that former Meredith National Media group president Jack Griffin told him, “If we decided to do this in-house, we’d still be just talking about it.” last_img read more

Infosys Top Executives See 170210 Hike in Compensation but CEO Vishal Sikka

first_imgTop executives at India’s second largest IT firm, Infosys, saw their compensation packages rise by a whopping 170-210% in FY15, however, CEO Vishal Sikka is not the highest paid in the company.The compensation details submitted by Infosys to US Securities and Exchange Commission showed that Chief Operating Officer UB Pravin Rao was the highest paid top executive in the company during the fiscal year 2014-15, The Financial Express reported.Rao, who took over as COO of Infosys in June 2014, saw a 204% increase in his total compensation standing at $9,70,646 or ₹5.82 crore compared to the $3,18,954 he received in FY14.Since joining Infosys in 1986, Rao has held a number of senior leadership roles in the company.Same is the case with Rajiv Bansal, the chief financial officer, whose total compensation rose by 174% in FY15. Bansal was the second highest paid executive in the company.Srikantan Moorthy, who was the head of HR department until recently, also received a 211% increase in his compensation to $6,42,628 in FY15 compared to $2,06,958 in FY15.However, the compensation of CEO Sikka stood at $7,16,539 or ₹4.3 crore, less than that of COO’s, as he did not receive any bonus or incentive in the financial year ending March 2015.Sikka, the first non-founder head of the company, took charge as the chief executive of the company from 1 August 2014.Rise in compensation for top executives comes in the wake of many senior-level executives leaving the company in the past two fiscal years. However, the attrition rate came under check after Sikka got appointed as CEO.The Bengaluru-based company recently announced an average salary hike of 6.5% as it faces the highest attrition rate among domestic IT firms.While announcing its results for March quarter, CEO Sikka said the company aims at boosting revenues to $20 billion from current $8.7 billion over the next five years.last_img read more

More Charges Against Oaks

first_imgAlready facing several charges including wire fraud and bribery, embattled Baltimore Sen. Nathaniel Oaks (D-41), is facing additional federal charges. According to the U.S. Attorney for the District of Maryland, a federal grand jury returned an indictment Nov. 15, charging Oaks, 71, with obstruction of justice.In this Feb. 6, 2009 photo, Maryland Del. Nathaniel T. Oaks, , Democrat, District 41, Baltimore City, glances toward fellow delegates as he questions then Baltimore Mayor Sheila Dixon during a hearing in the House of Delegates, Baltimore Delegation, in Annapolis, Md. Oaks, who used the word “lollipop” as a code word for every $1,000 he expected to be paid has been charged with accepting illegal payments in exchange for using his position to facilitate business deals, the U.S attorney’s office announced Friday, April 7, 2017. (Glenn Fawcett /The Baltimore Sun via AP)According to the U.S. Attorney’s Office, Oaks agreed to cooperate in an FBI investigation for possible violation of federal laws. Oaks was directed by the FBI to record phone conversations and wear a hidden recording device during in-person conversations with the specific target of the investigation. The conversations between Oaks and the target of the FBI investigation allegedly took place between January 2017 and March 2017.However, according to federal officials Oaks tipped off the target of the investigation at an Annapolis bar when Oaks allegedly said, “What we talked about, just say no.” The indictment also alleges Oaks told the target of the investigation, “I’m going to ask you for something, just say no,” during a conversation at a State government building in Annapolis. Both conversations allegedly took place in March 2017.According to the original indictment, Oaks, who was appointed to the Senate in February 2017, committed fraud and took more than $15,000 in bribes in 2015 and 2016. Oaks faces a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison for each count of wire fraud and honest services wire fraud, and five years in prison for each count of the Travel Act. He also faces 20 years in prison for the latest charge of obstruction of justice. An appearance for Oaks on the obstruction of justice charge has not been scheduled yet.last_img read more

Tomorrows tomography today Simultaneous 3D imaging of vascular and neuronal networks in

first_img More information: Simultaneous submicrometric 3D imaging of the micro-vascular network and the neuronal system in a mouse spinal cord, Scientific Reports (2015) 5:8514, doi:10.1038/srep08514 Citation: Tomorrow’s tomography today: Simultaneous 3D imaging of vascular and neuronal networks in mouse spinal cord tissue (2015, March 6) retrieved 18 August 2019 from Exploring X-ray phase tomography with synchrotron radiation This document is subject to copyright. Apart from any fair dealing for the purpose of private study or research, no part may be reproduced without the written permission. The content is provided for information purposes only. Dr. Alessia Cedola discussed the paper that she, Dr. Michela Fratini and their co-authors published in Scientific Reports. The scientists had to address two related challenges, Cedola tells, these being (1) showing that X-ray high-resolution phase-contrast tomography allows the simultaneous visualization of three-dimensional vascular and neuronal networks of ex vivo mouse spinal cord at scales spanning from millimeters to hundreds of nanometers without using contrast agent, sectioning, or destructive sample preparation; and (2) imaging single elements of these networks, such as microcapillaries and micrometric nerve fibers, axon-bundles and neuron soma. “Due to its potential ability to reveal the structures that generate poor contrast by common x-ray absorption techniques, we used SXrPCμT to simultaneously obtain 3D images of microvascularization and spinal cord neurology in a healthy mouse,” she explains. In fact, she notes that SXrPCμT is roughly 1,000 more sensitive to hydrogen, carbon, nitrogen, and oxygen than absorption-contrast X-ray imaging – and moreover has several additional advantages derived from its ability to provide high-resolution images that allow 3D reconstruction without damaging tissue samples.Cedola points out that better contrast can be achieved by imaging the phase modulation induced by an object in a coherent or partially coherent beam. “Different techniques have been developed to exploit phase contrast in the X-ray regime. A simple yet effective phase contrast method for hard X-rays is based upon inline imaging after free space propagation: When synchrotron X-rays illuminate the sample, variations in optical path length produce slight local deviations of the X-ray beam. In absorption radiography the detector is generally placed close enough to the sample that these variations are unnoticed – but on the contrary, when a free space propagation distance is allowed between sample and detector, the recorded image contains the information on the sample structure in the form of a pattern of interference fringes. Therefore, specific algorithms have to be used to retrieve from this pattern the morphological distribution of absorption and phase within the object.””This makes it possible image spinal cord microarchitecture and its 3D distribution – a hopeless task with conventional X-ray techniques,” Cedola continues. “In particular, the results reported in our paper are unique in that they simultaneously provide a detailed three-dimensional analysis of the microvascular network,” or μVN, “as well as the relevant interactions with neural cells in the healthy mouse’s spinal cord – and to do so without any contrast agent. Our resolution allows us to discriminate the smallest capillaries and neuronal morphology with neither invasive contrast agents nor aggressive sample preparations, thus minimizing the possibility of data misinterpretation.” The scientists then compare these results with conventional histological sections of the same sample and region. In order to unequivocally identify the microvascular network, similar samples are measured with and without a prepared contrast agent called Microfill – a lead-containing radiopaque (that is, opaque to X-rays or similar radiation) silicone rubber. When the contrast agent is not used, the μVN can be imaged with great accuracy, which in turn lets the researchers investigate its spatial distribution. Journal information: Scientific Reports (—Given that blood supply to the brain and spinal cord is fundamental to central nervous system (CNS) physiology and pathology, it’s not surprising that trauma and disease in spinal cord blood vessels and neurons lead to a range of neurodegenerative pathologies and other serious consequences. However, current imaging tools do not generate sufficient dimensionality, resolution, contrast and other factors critical to investigating neurodegenerative pathologies and spinal-cord-injuries, as well as to understanding the relationship between vascular and neuronal systems.

Specifically,Micrometric-scale imaging of brain tissue such as Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM) provide 2D images of neurons or vessels, and moreover require invasive sample preparationPost-mortem techniques also use SEM, but cannot be used to perform quantitative analyses Two-photon microscopy and other more recently-introduced methods provide 3D information but have limited penetration depth and target area sizeMagnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) or Positron Emission Tomography (PET) allow for both structural and functional imaging, but cannot investigate microvascular networks due to spatial resolution limitationsMR angiography and volumetric-computed tomography are robust 3D imaging techniques but cannot visualize small vessels Conventional X-ray angiography also has a detection limit preventing it from imaging micrometric vessels and capillariesHigh-resolution X-ray synchrotron phase contrast tomography (XSPCT) can achieve 3D imaging of microvascular networks, but to date has required a contrast agent to visualize both microcapillaries and neuron morphologyHowever, in a recent interdisciplinary multisite study conducted at the Italian National Research Council, Enrico Fermi Centre, and other sites in Italy; European Synchrotron Radiation Facility, France; Paul Scherrer Institut, Switzerland; and other research facilities, scientists demonstrated that Synchrotron X-Ray Phase Contrast Microtomography (SXrPCμT) – a combination of high-resolution X-ray Phase Contrast Tomography and the coherence of a Synchrotron X-ray source – achieves high image contrast and enables high-resolution 3D visualization of ex vivo mouse spinal cord microvascular and neuronal in the same image. (Synchrotron X-ray tomography employs phase contrast imaging to exploit a difference in the refractive index between a detail and its surroundings, which causes a phase shift between the light that travels through the sample; ex vivo refers to experimentation or measurements done in or on tissue from an organism in an external environment with the minimum alteration of natural conditions.) Moreover, SXrPCμT accomplishes this without contrast agents (thereby increasing accuracy), sectioning or destructive sample-preparation. In addition to CNS disorders and traumatic spinal cord injuries, the researchers say that their experimental approach has significant potential in the investigation of a large number of ex vivo pre-clinical studies; might benefit biomedical, pre-clinical and clinical applications; and, perhaps unexpectedly, can be applied to the study of cultural heritage, where applications could include multiscale 3D imaging of morphology of fossils, opaque amber, prehistoric bones, and the virtual unrolling of unpublished ancient fragile papyrus writings. “Thanks to the collaboration between CNR, Centro Fermi and European advanced synchrotron radiation facilities, like ID 17 at ESRF (France) and Tomcat at PSI (Switzerland), it was possible to obtain high-quality phase contrast images,” Cedola says, adding that the use of advanced techniques with synchrotron X-rays was complemented by state-of-the-art image reconstruction algorithms. “Our work focuses on an interdisciplinary research,” Cedola tells “We engage biomedical science and physics with the intent to focus on the translation of modern X-ray physics concepts to pre-clinical applications. In addition, we believe that our paper demonstrates the potentialities of the synchrotron X-ray phase contrast microtomography technique, showing that it can be applied to a large number of ex vivo pre-clinical studies.”In their paper, the scientists describe their approach as being very well-suited for pre-clinical investigation of neurodegenerative pathologies and spinal-cord-injuries. “Neurodegenerative diseases, such as Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, multiple sclerosis, and Huntington’s disease, represent a most prevalent health problem worldwide,” Cedola notes. “The main goal of this project is to develop a solid method for pre-clinical research in this field,” pointing out that there is growing interest in high-resolution imaging techniques for the investigation of several pathological markers. “Our framework allows for a direct, quantitative estimation of the most important morphological and topological parameters characterizing the vascular and neuronal networks in the spinal cord. In particular, the 3D spinal cord geometry obtained using SXrPCμT will provide an innovative framework aiding the regular application in the pre-clinical practice to, for example, select the best treatment.”The paper also addresses the various ways in which their approach can be applied to resolve the entangled relationship between vascular and neuronal systems. “Neurons, astrocytes, glia, and microvessels seem to constitute an integrated functional unit, whose primary purpose is to maintain the homeostasis of the brain’s microenvironment,” Cedola says. “Furthermore, it was found that alterations of the CNS vascular regulatory mechanisms lead to brain dysfunction and diseases, including cancer, ischemia” – in which insufficient blood flow to the brain leads to cerebral hypoxia (insufficient oxygen supply) and, in turn, neuronal cell death or stroke – “edema, damage to white matter, and other neurodegenerative pathologies. Thanks to these high-resolution techniques making it possible to simultaneously visualize the distribution and interactions of vascular and neuronal networks in various tissue types, we may finally resolve the relationship between the microvascular and neuronal systems. This promises significant progress in understanding the neuronal and vascular physiology of neurodegenerative diseases, leading advances in regenerative medicine for the treatment of traumatic spinal cord diseases.”Moving forward, Cedola tells that the study of central nervous system disorders and traumatic spinal cord injuries are the most significant examples of the next steps we plan to take in our research. “In addition,” she continues, “the study of the spinal cord system can be of immediate and fruitful application in the medical field and in particular in the investigation and treatment of neuro-degenerative diseases, such as multiple sclerosis, and spinal cord injuries. Recently, for example,” she illustrates, “traumatic diseases of the spinal cord have been treated with regeneration methods, making evident the utility of a tool able to verify the effectiveness of treatments during the testing phase.”Looking further into the future, when asked how their research might contribute to the effort to create an integrated structural/function connectome of the entire brain, Cedola replies that “the possibility to obtain 3D quantification of the vascular and neural networks and, by means of their characteristic and real geometry using SXrPCμT and specific algorithms, will be employed to refine current vascular and neuronal models. “That said, while we’re not directly involved with efforts such as the NIH Human Connectome Project or the Harvard/MGH-UCLA consortium Human Connectome Project, we’ve used their data and collaborate with several of their members.” © 2015 VN investigation: a) X-ray Phase Contrast Tomography reconstructed volume of lumbar-sacral region of the spinal cord. The image, obtained with a pixel size of 0.64 mm without contrast agent at TOMCAT beamline, was segmented to show the capillaries and the nerve fibers. b) Magnified region of a): the vessels are red and the nerve fibers are green. c) Immunohistochemical analysis of laminin, a marker of blood vessels, in the lumbar-sacral spinal cord showing a coronal section of the vascular system. d) Immunohistochemical analysis of myelin basic protein (MBP), a marker of the myelin sheath of nerve fibers in the spinal cord.

Govt to invest Rs 107 cr to check river bank erosion

first_imgKolkata: With continuous apathy of the Centre in addressing the problem of river bank erosion in Bengal, the Mamata Banerjee government has decided to invest Rs 107 crore to check erosion at vulnerable areas along Ganga and Padma rivers. Rajib Banerjee, the state Irrigation minister, said: “We will be investing Rs 107 crore to check erosion of the banks of river Ganga and Padma.”The work that will be carried out by investing the money, will be completed by the end of March 2019. Hundreds of people will get relieved as they would no longer have to worry about their houses getting washed away by strong currents. Also Read – Heavy rain hits traffic, flightsIt may be mentioned that in 2017-18, the state Irrigation department had invested Rs 72.1 crore to check erosion at different points along the rivers and with the investment of another Rs 107 crore, a stretch of 15 km will be concretised, so that the soil does not get eroded any more.It may be recalled that around 37 spots were identified, where erosion of river banks is a serious problem and hampers the normal lives of people.The most vulnerable points out of these spots have been identified, where the work will be carried out initially so that it doesn’t cause further loss to property as agricultural land was also washed away at many places due to erosion of river banks. Also Read – Speeding Jaguar crashes into Merc, 2 B’deshi bystanders killedAfter completion of the concretisation and strengthening of the river banks at such vulnerable locations, the same task will also be gradually taken up elsewhere in due course of time, so the problem is ironed out at all the spots.It may be mentioned that Padma river divides Murshidabad in Bengal and Bangladesh. So, the erosion of river bank also leads to threat to national security as there have been instances when river bank close to Border Out Post (BOP) of Border Security Force was washed away. BSF jawans maintain vigil on Bangladesh on the other side of the river from the BOP. On the other hand, a stretch of river Ganga divides Malda with the neighbouring states on its west. So, erosion of river bank has come up as a serious issue, causing inconvenience to the local residents.Banerjee said: “We had approached the state government several times. But it fell on deaf ears. So, the state government has taken up the responsibility to ensure safety of the people who reside along the river, by checking possibilities of erosion.”last_img read more

continue fighting for ppl of Delhi (sic)The administration of Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi of Enugu State has approved the monthly contribution of N85 million as counterpart fund for the Free Maternal and Child Health programme designed to provide primary healthcare to pregnant women at the grassroots and children under the age of five years The programme which has been in existence since the past government according to the Commissioner for Health Dr Fintan Ekochin who briefed newsmen after the meeting of the State Executive Council (EXCO) was being funded by the local governments in Enugu State through a monthly contribution of N85 million Dr Ekochin said that the council noted that the amount being contributed by local governments to fund the programme was not sufficient to provide treatment to all the pregnant women and children under five years at the primary health centres and decided to approve additional N85 million monthly totaling N17 million every month for effective and efficient healthcare services in the rural areas Describing the council’s N85 million approval as “one of the greatest approvals in the history of Enugu State” the Health Commissioner disclosed that the counterpart fund will provide succor to “our teeming young mothers who were unable to afford better healthcare services when pregnant and also all the children in the rural areas who are under five with a lot of childhood challenges in the health area” He stated that the new approved funding was a prelude to better things to come in the primary healthcare delivery in the state saying: “With this funding approved the Enugu State Primary Healthcare Development Agency in line with federal guidelines is going to commence repositioning refurbishing and reactivation of primary healthcare centres” Dr Ekochin further stated that the programme implementation will come in three phases explaining that the first phase will be the establishment of flagship primary health centres in the three senatorial districts of the state while the second and third phases will be focused on having one and two healthcare centres in ten local governments respectively “Now with all these primary healthcare centres repositioned you can imagine the ease and comfort women who are pregnant and children under five will have accessing the free maternal and child health programme “This is why EXCO approval of counterpart funding is really a big deal This funding puts Enugu State in a very big position to fulfill the World Health mandate of universal health coverage and kudos must therefore go to His Excellency our dear Governor Rt Hon Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi for this positive step towards qualitative and affordable healthcare delivery in Enugu State” the Health Commissioner said In a related development Dr Ekochin also told newsmen that following the mandate given to the Federal Ministry of Health to set up a National Steering Committee to evaluate the implementation of the Regional Disease Surveillance (REDIS) Project Enugu State was selected to represent the South East geo-political zone in the committee He equally added that accreditation has been granted and restored to the School of Basic Midwifery Awgu Awgu LGA and School of Nursing and Midwifery Bishop Shanahan Hospital Nsukka Nsukka LGA respectively by the Nursing and Midwifery Council The commissioner explained that Gov Ugwuanyi’s administration in its concerted effort to ensure that the midwifery school in Awgu was accredited approved the sum of N35 million in the third quarter of 2017 for the accreditation exercise Dr Ekochin also disclosed that the state government has been regular in the payment of counterpart bill for the Bishop Shanahan Hospital Nsukka which contributed highly to the restoration of accreditation to the health institution’s School of Nursing and Midwifery Highlighting the significance of the achievement the commissioner stated that it will increase the number of skilled birth
