Reproductive health education to be taught at Karachi colleges
Karachi: The government has decided to introduce reproductive health education programmes at colleges from this academic year.
The Sindh Assembly's Public Accounts Committee was informed about the decision, which had been approved by the prime minister, at a meeting held at Committee Room No 1 of the Sindh Assembly Building on Tuesday.
Presided over by its chairman Sardar Jam Tamachi, the public accounts committee meeting examined the planning and development department's three draft paras of audited accounts report 2004-05 and three paras of the population welfare department's audit report 2005-2006.
The meeting also took notice of the appointment of chief economist Noorul Haq Siddiqi in Sindh, who has a PhD in physics instead of economics, in violation of the rules. It was noticed that the chief minister, who was the competent authority to approve the rules, had not relaxed the relevant rule so far.
Of the total three paras under scrutiny, the discussion on the first para, which pertains to irregular expenditure of Rs5.139 million, was deferred to the next meeting, while the third para about a misclassified expenditure of Rs245,564 was settled with a warning.
While examining the second draft para about an irregular refund of a security deposit of Rs253,008, Mr Tamachi directed the PAC secretary to write to the chief minister and the chief secretary to carry out an inquiry.
The PAC chairman directed Planning and Development Secretary Javed Ishrat to produce relevant record and give reasons for variation in amounts specified in tender and expenditures to the audit team by holding a pre-PAC meeting with the Sindh audit director-general.
Mr Ishrat assured the PAC chairman that he would ensure holding not only pre-PAC meetings but also departmental accounts committee meetings every three months to streamline the record which would help in removing anomalies.
After the planning and development department's report, the public accounts committee examined the draft paras of the population welfare department of the audit report 2005-2006.
In all, there were three paras related to misclassification expenditures of Rs1.25 million, unjustified expenditure on purchase of machinery, furniture and medicines of Rs669,153 million and unverified expenditures of Rs45.43 million.
Sindh Audit DG Nazeer Ahmad Sehar informed the committee that the department had held three pre-PAC meetings where all required documents had been produced. The record had also been verified by an audit team during these meetings, he said.
Population and Welfare Department Secretary Siddique Memon informed the meeting about five initiatives, including the introduction of reproductive health education programme at colleges, whose approval was given by Prime Minister Yusuf Raza Gilani in July. The health education programme was planned to raise health awareness at colleges so that students could learn about biological changes through trained lecturers rather than through unwarranted sources.
He said the other four initiatives were revival of village-based family workers whose number would be 10,000; seeking support from religious leaders for which committees were being formed at the taluka level; setting up of family welfare centres at the UC level in Sindh; and introduction of nutrition supplement programme for parents in six districts initially.
The PAC chairman settled the paras, suggesting the department secretary adopt innovative methods to popularise the population welfare programme. Dawn
