The Virgin Islands is receiving assistance from the Caribbean Public Health Agency (CARPHA) to build capacity to enhance vector control.
The BVI Environmental Health Division seeks to strengthen measures to prevent and respond to mosquito borne diseases.
The Government of the Virgin Islands has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with Green VI to strengthen vector control and increase community engagement by way of BugOut.
Vector control surveillance in the Territory was further strengthened with the hosting of a training workshop for the staff at the Environmental Health Division.
The Pan American Health Organization (PAHO) continues to support the BVI health sector by donating two much-needed trucks to support vector control.
Residents of the Virgin Islands are urged to support efforts to minimise mosquito breeding in the Territory.
