ALLOWANCES owed to volunteers mobilised to distribute filariasis tablets in the north will be paid tomorrow.

Ministry of Health acting permanent secretary Doctor Josefa Koroivueta confirmed this, adding they had just received the list of volunteers' names yesterday.

"Volunteers will be paid according to certain criteria set by the ministry and this includes the registration of workers during the tablet distribution phase and the amount of citizens that volunteers had successfully distributed the tablets to."

It was reported that in some areas the ministry was able to reach an estimated 86 per cent of the population who responded and complied with the tablet administration process, with other areas in the country recording coverage of up to 95 per cent.
