Anti-Dengue Month: Workshop on Dengue Awareness and Prevention

 

July is observed as the anti-dengue month to raise awareness on Dengue- a mosquito-borne viral infection, found in tropical and sub-tropical climates worldwide, mostly in urban and semi-urban areas. To mark the occasion, AIPH University organized a workshop in collaboration with Molbio Diagnostics. Dr B N Nagpal, Scientist WHO SEARO, delivered a talk titled ‘Bioecology of Dengue Vector Aedes and Implications on its Control’. 



“There is no medicine or vaccine for Dengue. Prevention is the best tool to control this vector borne disease. The Dengue cases are increasing because there is no vector control. We all must know the breeding places of mosquito and keep our surroundings clean to stop the dengue menace”, says Dr B N Nagpal, Scientist WHO, SEARO, New Delhi.  
      
In the technical session, a team from Molbio Diagnostics demonstrated and explained the uses of TruNat machine. The students got hands on training on TruNat machines. "Dengue poses a significant threat to public health. Unless we have a vaccine, we need cutting edge technology to control Dengue", said Dr Pradeep Kumar Panda, Dean School of Public 



Health, AIPH University. Dr Panda also flagged off an awareness vehicle which moved across various places in the city to draw attention to Dengue prevention. Dr Nagpal, students and faculty visited Bilipara village Sarkana GP of Balianta block in Bhubaneswar. The students sensitized the community members on symptoms, causes and prevention of Dengue.
