The campaign termed 3T (test, treat and talk) was inaugurated in the lawn of Lokseba Bhawan in the presence of Secretary Women and Child Development Subha Sharma and other senior officers. Replying to a media query on the occasion, Mahapatra said that anemia is seen as a health concern across various social categories. One of the reasons for prevalence of anemia might be the malady generally going undiagnosed and symptoms ignored. He directed the departments of women & child development, and health & family welfare to intensify hemoglobin testing and counseling throughout the State. Mahapatra also advised all officers and employees of Lokseba Bhawan to get themselves tested and take necessary medicines in interest of their own health.  Sharma appraised that six stalls for testing of anemic level with awareness materials were set up in lawn of the Lokseba Bhawan. Blood test reports could be given within two minutes.  Medicines were also being given free of cost in these stalls after testing. Nutrition experts were present to provide nutritional counseling. The stalls would remain open till December 2. With this facility around 5000 officers and employees of Lokseba Bhawan would get this facility. The stalls would operate from 11 AM to 4.30 PM daily from November 28 to December 2.
