Captive Elephant (Transfer or Transport) Rules, 2024

The Captive Elephant (Transfer or Transport) Rules, 2024, recently notified by the Union Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change, outline the procedure for transferring captive elephants within or between states. These rules authorize the Chief Wildlife Warden (CWW) of states and Union Territories to approve or reject such transfers. The transfer is allowed if the owner cannot maintain the elephant or if the animal's welfare improves with the transfer. However, transfers are only permitted if the elephant's genetic profile is registered in the Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change's electronic monitoring application. The application for transfer must be made to the Deputy Conservator of Forests (DCF) in charge of the area where the elephant is registered. The DCF conducts an inquiry and verifies the facilities where the elephant is currently housed and where it will be housed next. A veterinary practitioner's certificate is also required before forwarding the details to the CWW for final approval or rejection within seven days.

Post-Vaccination Immunity : Study

A recent study on post-vaccination immunity revealed that only a few vaccines offer long-lasting protection exceeding 20 years. The study explains the immunological process where memory B cells are produced in lymph nodes after vaccination, providing long-term protection against diseases. These B cells recognize antigens delivered by the vaccine, triggering the production of antibodies to fight off infections. However, T cell support is necessary for memory B cells, and not all vaccines stimulate T cells effectively. Some vaccines require frequent boosters to maintain immunity, while others generate long-lasting plasma cells (LLPCs) in the bone marrow for lifelong protection. The report emphasizes the need for vaccines to stimulate both memory B cells and LLPCs for sustained immunity.

Fair Share for Health And Care Report : WHO

The World Health Organization (WHO) released the Fair Share for Health and Care report, addressing gender disparities in global healthcare. The report highlights that women make up a significant portion of the paid global health and care workforce, along with performing most unpaid care activities. Despite their contributions, women face gender gaps in pay, representation in leadership roles, and experience higher levels of gender-based violence in the healthcare sector.

Cinematograph (Certification) Rules, 2024

The Ministry of Information and Broadcasting introduced the Cinematograph (Certification) Rules, 2024, replacing outdated rules to align with technological advancements in the film industry. These rules streamline the certification process, incorporate accessibility features for disabled persons, and introduce age-based categories for film suitability. They also emphasize greater representation of women in certification boards and expedite the certification process for filmmakers.
