The Divisional Medical Officer – Western Division, Dr Susana Nakalevu, believes the fight against dengue fever is everyone’s responsibility.

She made the statement after the Clyde Equipment- Reddy Group in Lautoka donated two mist blowers worth $3000 each on Tuesday to the Ministry of Health.

Clyde Equipment’s general manager, Praful Dhokai, hopes the equipment will help the ministry’s campaign against dengue fever.

“We want to help the health ministry fight dengue. These machines will help wipe out the breeding places for mosquitoes,” he said.

The mist blower is a device for spraying insecticides or fungicides in the form of a mist.

Dr Nakalevu was grateful for the corporate support saying: “We need to strengthen partnership with other stakeholders, corporate bodies, families, communities and indeed the fight against dengue should be a collaborative effort.

“The Ministry acknowledges this sponsorship and we hope to broaden our partnership with many more stakeholders to address dengue in Fiji.”
