Awareness camps on JE organised

DOLLUNGMUKH, Jul 23: The Kamle District Health Society organised a series of awareness camps on Japanese encephalitis (JE), along with health screenings under the RBSK, at schools and anganwadi centres across Dollungmukh circle on Monday.
Leading the campaign, DRCHO Dr Kapu Sopin said since Dollungmukh shares boundaries with Assam, where JE cases have been detected, all stakeholders should make concerted efforts to create awareness about JE and its prevention.
In Upper Kamle, Puchigeko MO (in-charge) Dr Jullion Gongo launched the campaign at the JNV in Megdong. Upper Kamle area, which covers Ligu, Liruk, Baja, Niji, Dong, etc, is a high-risk area, owing to the presence of vast paddy fields.
Goan buras, ASHAs and anganwadi workers, along with RBSK members and teachers took part in the awareness programmes. (DIPRO)
