Actions Against Dengue

The global prevalence of dengue fever (DF) has grown dramatically in recent decades. Frequent heavy monsoon rains in Punjab, have provided ideal conditions for dengue-carrying mosquitoes to breed in stagnant/still waters. Environment Protection Organization has been entrusted with responsibilities to make its contribution in the Anti-Dengue Campaign launched by the Government of Punjab.
