The Disease Control Program includes both the communicable and non-communicable diseases. The communicable diseases include food and water-borne diseases, immunisable diseases, AIDS / HIV, vector-borne diseases and other communicable diseases.

Dengue fever poses as a major problem in our district. However with the co-operation from other agencies, we managed to control the problem.

  • Fogging is done whenever there is dengue case in a locality.
