The first two brigades of mosquito control were constituted in the Popular Council of Abel Santamaría with the participation of several factors involved in neighborhood fight against this dangerous vector that spreads Dengue virus.

The main mission of these working groups is to clear up home by home how to fight against the proliferation of the mosquito Aedes aegypti, as well as planning the work around this battle.

Low levels of perceived risk, the lack of systematization in the vector control and lack of awareness about the issue were the main issues during the debate carried out in this district.

Several interventions of authoritative voices gave an overview of the current situation of the Popular Council, one of the most affected and in which an offensive is developed.

Likewise, the concept of “constantly struggle” given by Fidel in 1981, when the dengue epidemic, took the life of 158 people and 101 of them were children, was retaken once again.

After the meeting a representation of workers in the Vector Control Unit delivered educational materials to increase population’s awareness about confronting this danger.

The Isle of Youth is one of the eight regions of the country which have infestation levels above accepted levels, so further efforts on all fronts to reverse this reality, that’s why it’s important to create more brigades in 166 areas before September 27.
