WORLD Health Day is all about various communities in the country working together to advocate a critical health issue which has been affecting Fiji this year.

The World Health Day theme for this year "Small Bite, Big Threat" focuses on vector-borne diseases such as dengue to be eradicated.

World Health Organization director Pacific technical support and representative Dr Yunguo Liu said the theme was a timely reminder for everyone that Fiji was still experiencing a major outbreak of dengue.

"The World Health Organization and the Ministry of Health are committed to working together with health partners in the containment of vector-borne diseases in Fiji and in improving the health of all people in the country," Dr Liu said.

About 200 people turned up for the clean-up campaign, which was part of the World Health Day celebrations yesterday.
