The Indian Medical Association (IMA) has recently announced its plans to open 1,700 adolescent clinics in India in a bid to educate the girl child on lifestyle and on reproductive and mental health, according to a IANS report.

As per the latest figures, nearly two lakh children die of diarrhoea and three lakh due to pneumonia every year, which is not acceptable to the medical profession, IMA secretary general K.K. Aggrawal said.

"No child should die of diarrhoea and pneumonia. The IMA will sensitise over 2.5 lakh doctors on the subject," he said at the annual conference of the Indian Academy of Pediatrics.

Established in 1928, IMA is the national organisation of 'Doctors of Modern Scientific System of Medicine', and currently has around 250,000 members belonging to different branches of medical profession and function through a network of more than 1700 local branches, located in different part of India.
