NHF SPONSORS MAJOR EDUCATION CAMPAIGN TO PROMOTE GOOD ENVIRONMENTAL HEALTH

The National Health Fund is sponsoring a major mass media and education campaign to promote good environmental health practices and the use of safe water in order to support the Ministry of Health?s programme to stave off water and vector borne diseases in the aftermath of Hurricane Ivan.

The programme is aimed at intensifying information on making water safe and the importance of using safe water, eliminating mosquito breeding sites around the home, preventing gastroenteritis and what to do when children are affected. There will also be a focus on food safety and general sanitation in the face of environmental health concerns caused by Hurricane Ivan.

A series of radio and print advertisements have started and brochures and posters will be widely distributed across the island especially in the worst affected areas to inform residents what to do to prevent diseases and protect their health.

Mr. Rae Barrett, Chief Executive Officer of the NHF says ?The support by the NHF is in keeping with the priority environmental health needs identified by the Ministry of Health and with the mandate of the Fund to reduce the burden on health care in Jamaica.?
