Vector Control Program to fight dengue Updated On 0000-00-00
A pilot project is initiated in Trivandrum Corporation to contain the dengue outbreak. Project is being implemented with the convergence of Trivandrum Corporation, Health Department, and NRHM. The aim is to create a team of Kudumbashree volunteers in each ward. The team will conduct house visits, will inspect houses and premises for identifying potential sources of mosquito breeding and will do all the source reduction activities. 5000 volunteers are selected from all wards (approximately one volunteer to take care of 50 houses) for conducting house visit. In each ward, 3 master trainers were selected (One representative of ADS, JHI and JPHN). They imparted training to the volunteers of each ward. Also the volunteers were provided with brochures and leaflets. Volunteers visited each house, and checked the premises for presence of mosquito sources. Also, a survey form was filled. The activity will be repeated once in every month.
