Fighting dengue

Friday, February 14, 2014

THE four major provinces in the Central Division have stood up for the fight against dengue fever.

The fight against this deadly epidemic will top the respective district meetings agendas for Tailevu, Naitasiri, Serua and Namosi in the coming weeks.

Roko tui Serua Jese Volau said a health team had started the campaign and was already at the Nuku district in the Serua highlands and would move to the other three districts.

He said health officials presented draft programs which they would work with in the 24 villages within the province.

Roko Tui Tailevu Semisi Saukawa said their meeting at the end of the month would address this issue.

He said they would also approach health officials to help provide gloves and other equipment for villagers to use during the clean- up.

Roko tui Naitasiri Ratu Waisake Tuisese said they had had discussions with the health inspector in Vunidawa who would provide them with programs to be distributed at the upcoming districts meetings.
