On this World Mosquito Day, Malaria No More India launched its flagship campaign 'India Against Mosquito' which aims at building mass awareness and promoting innovative solutions for controlling the mosquitoes.
Every year on 20 August, World Mosquito Day is observed to commemorate British doctor Sir Ronald Ross' discovery that female mosquitoes spread malaria among human beings.
The workshop was inaugurated by Dr Neeraj Dhingra, Director of the National Vector Borne Disease Control Programme. He focused on Malaria No More India's efforts to increase awareness and promote community action against the mosquito. An increase in mass awareness and practical approaches to manage the vector can go a long way in eliminating the mosquito-borne diseases from the country.
