Harbinger of Hope for Kala Azar Victims of Bihar

Patna: Landless labourers of a Bihar village affected by Kala Azar, will soon have a decent house, thanks to the government's plan// to check the spread of the deadly disease.

Dream of a pucca house made of brick and mortar is all set to become a reality for these landless labourers of Naubatpur village near Patna, affected badly by Kala Azar, a parasitic disease transmitted by the tiny sand fly.

The official record estimated that 25,000 people, mostly poor in 31 of the state's 38 districts, are in its grip. The disease is characterised by fever, weight loss, swelling of the spleen and liver and leads to cardiovascular complications resulting in death.

According to former union health minister C.P. Thakur, an expert on Kala Azar, more than 50,000 people are s
