Mass Awareness Campaign : Prevention of Vector Borne Diseases
True is the saying, “Health is wealth."
“Good health and good sense are two of life’s greatest blessings”. Health education is essential for the control of diseases such as dengue, ensuring that community members understand the mechanisms of infection and the key behaviors or activities that need to be addressed to prevent transmission, reduce severe disease and avoid fatalities.
Bringing about community involvement to counter all kinds of vector diseases, Prudence school Dwarka 22 conducted an Orientation programmer on Dengue Awareness on September 18, 2019.
As the Nodal school with ten reputed institutions as participative representatives, the host educational organization strived to recommend that school-based educational programmes and social mobilizations should be implemented in order to raise the awareness, to translate knowledge into sound practice within all schools and to control dengue disease epidemics.
Many activities were conducted like speeches, slogans and a vibrant presentation of Nukkad Natak spreading the knowledge about “symptoms & patient care” and “control & prevention practices” for the dengue awareness programme. The level of awareness was increased significantly after the programme through constructive discussions based on the personal and professional front.
