A three-day public awareness campaign to accelerate vector control measures got underway in Delhi today.
The campaign aims to sensitize and mobilise the community on measures for prevention and control of Vector-Borne Diseases like Malaria, Dengue and Chikungunya.
Health Minister Dr Harsh Vardhan today visited the Hauz Khas area, including schools and RWAs, and inspected domestic breeding of mosquitoes.
He said it is going to be a people's movement through their active involvement and also from the officers of Central government, Delhi government, all three Delhi Municipal Corporations, New Delhi Municipal Council, Railways and other stakeholders.
The Minister said this is for the first time that three governments-national, state and local bodies will converge in their efforts to mobilise the community for a public health activity.
Our correspondent reports that the campaign is aimed at making the community a partner for checking vector and mosquito breeding across Delhi. (AIR NEWS)
