- Desert Medicine research Centre (DMRC), is one of the permanent institutes of the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR), a Government of India’s apex autonomous organization for bio-medical research in the country. Realizing the importance of research needs of existing and emerging health problems of desert, ICMR decided to establish a Centre in Rajasthan with a definite mandate to undertake and promote research on health problems specific to desert areas, study the changing patterns of health problems especially in view of various developmental activities taking place in the region and strengthen the scientific and technical expertise of state as well as local health agencies.
- The Centre, established on 27th June, 1984, started functioning in the form of three co-ordinating units located at Jodhpur, Bikaner, and Jaipur. The positioning of the three units in three areas of Rajasthan, represented a desert health study unit at Jodhpur, a unit representing desert area with developmental activity (Indira Gandhi Nahar Priyojna) at Bikaner and a non-desert area represented by the Jaipur unit. A comprehensive baseline health survey in three units was undertaken to have scientifically generated observations on the health profile of the region and factors associated with the morbidity pattern. With the completion of baseline health survey, all the units of the Centre were merged to form a unified research Centre at Jodhpur in the year 1992.
- During two decades of its existence, DMRC has contributed to generate baseline data on nutritional problems faced by the population of desert areas, understanding of transmission dynamics of vector borne diseases (malaria & dengue) in the changing ecology of desert areas, other health problems like silicosis, hypertension, renal stones, specific maternal-child health issues, elimination of guinea worm disease, etc. The Centre has several ongoing programmes on dengue, malaria, vector bionomics, insecticide resistance, novel herbs with potential as insecticides as well as anti-infective agents, hypertension, and various nutritional deficiencies in vulnerable populations aiming to establish itself as centre of excellence on these problems with special reference to desert ecology. With its transformation into a research, teaching and training centre (e.g. already recognized for a PhD programme), DMRC has now grown up to undertake opportunities and challenges in human health research with more vigour and enthuse to fulfill its overall mandate of the new charter of duties meeting national and international goals in this area.
- Two decades of R & D effort, a journey towards technical excellence in desert health management has led DMRC to emerge as a nodal centre undertaking research activities of a National Institute on Desert Health. Centre’s programmes in areas like human physiology, geographical genomics, nutritional diseases, operational research, vector-borne diseases, medicinal and insecticidal plants, infectious diseases, non-communicable diseases, advanced functional biomaterials, non-communicable diseases, nano-bio interface, health problems associated with desert environment, famine, floods, opium addiction, dehydration, water borne diseases, radio isotopic applications, NBC threats and post disaster management provide DMRC the plate form for leadership both at national and international level as arid zones constitute about one-seventh of the earth’s land surface. In India, the desert encompasses 8.7% of the total land area.
- To study maintenance mechanism of dengue virus in nature, determine regional risk factors of Dengue & DHF and develop surveillance design capable of forecasting impending epidemic situations for their prevention and management in Rajasthan.
- To study vector bionomics and transmission dynamics of desert malaria, identifying local risk factors to develop a strategic action plan for its prevention and control.
- To study magnitude and distribution of nutritional deficiencies and develop locally sustainable intervention programme for their management.
- To undertake longitudinal studies for estimation of burden of communicable and non- communicable diseases and their transition across time and space for policy planning.
- To study epidemiology of life-style diseases, identify local risk factors and demonstrate intervention measures for their effectiveness.
- As enshrined in its Vision Document, DMRC strive to serve as a Centre of Excellence in medical research to address health problems of the desert population. In continuation of the Centre’s past contributions to the field of health development research, the Centre’s future role has been defined with a focus on the desert as the guiding principle.
- In today’s changing environment, no institute can work in isolation. The challenge for the Centre includes establishment of problem-based linkages with other ICMR research institutes and develop well-planned new links between different research organizations such as the Indian Council of Agricultural Research (ICAR) and its agencies, regional universities, medical colleges, defence organizations, Council of Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR), oil and natural gas organizations located in the region. These linkages with national as well as local institutions should get priority in the evolution of the Centre so that it establishes itself as a leader to address the health problems of the desert region. Knowledge in the fields of geography, medicine and health issues, linked with defence-related areas need careful consideration for various strategic reasons. There is a need to develop linkages with other researchers and begin working towards a common research agenda for optimum utilization of infrastructure and resources.
