BANGALORE: While health minister B Sriramulu gives blank statements on free treatment for H1N1 and dengue patients in private hospitals, here is a group of youngsters who have vaccinated slum children to prevent them from swine flu.

Members of NGO Naavu, who have belief in the concept "Prevention is better than cure", conducted a free H1N1 vaccination programme on Tuesday in Sajjan Rao School.

"We did not get the required support in government school. That is when we chose slum-dwelling children, who are studying in private schools. About 175 children from Parvathipura slum, who are studying in this school, were vaccinated," said N Krsihna Kumar, founder, Naavu.

The vaccine costs Rs 250 per student. With the help of donors and pharmaceutical companies, the NGO could bring down the cost per student to Rs 150.

It was conducted with the help of a team of doctors, comprising Dr Keshav Murthy, Dr N Nagalakshmi, Dr Leela. Medical students from KIMS also joined the event.
