District level workshop on child oral health for nurses was held on April 28 at DC Hill Prayer Fellowship building, Zunheboto. DC Zunheboto, Kiheto Jimo speaking as chief guest said people should make full use of technology which had come till the doorstep. DC exhorted the nurses that wherever they were posted, they should try to educate the people about oral health care not only in the hospital or medical centre but also in the Church or any other gathering. State programme officer Dr. Hotokhu Chishi while giving the keynote address said tobacco was the gateway to drug and oral cancer was acquired from tobacco consumption. He said as per the survey of Government of India, 48% of the people in Nagaland were tobacco users, adding that equipment worth 10 lakhs had been provided to community health centers (CHC) so that the patient could get treated in nearest CHC. Around 120 nurses posted under Zunheboto district attended the programme. The programme was sponsored by Department of Health & Family Welfare Nagaland.
