Aug 16, 2010 4:25:21 AM - itnnews.lk

The National Dengue Eradication Week begins today. It will cover the entire island. Minister Maithripala Sirisena has instructed the officials to launch several Dengue Eradication Programmes during this month.

The programmes are intended to eliminate Dengue mosquito breeding grounds in home gardens, private institutions and public organizations.

Committees of the Dengue Eradication Task Force have been set up at provincial level to enhance the efficiency of the Dengue eradication programmes.

Each Ministry will have a special day allocated for the implementation of Dengue eradication programmes. The Armed Forces, the Special Task Force, Police and Civil Defence Force have also joined in the effort.
