FIJI National University's Lautoka campus has joined the authorities in the campaign to eradicate mosquito breeding grounds.

Students and lecturers joined hands on Saturday to clean up the campus which houses hundreds of students.

FNU West spokeswoman Ana Niumataiwalu said the campaign was a proactive approach to prevent the spread of dengue.

"The campaign was initiated by the College of Education under a directive of the school dean," she said.

"Because of the increase in dengue fever in the country, FNU wanted to do this campaign as a proactive approach to the spread of dengue."

Ms Niumataiwalu said the Lautoka and Raiwai campus in Suva were part of the campaign.

"For Lautoka, all of our hostel students and staff were part of the clean-up and with this campaign we also were able to clean up debris left behind by the heavy rain we experienced over the past few days."

West health inspector West Rakesh Kumar said campaigns such as those done by FNU were encouraged by the Health Ministry.

"People and organisations are all responsible for their own compounds and clean-up campaigns are something that we would like to see more of," he said.
