The Sawla-Tuna-Kalba district service is to embark on a mass drug administration on the 19th to 30th of May, 2021, to eradicate both onchocerciasis (River blindness) and lymphatic filariasis (Elephantiasis) in the district as the district is one of the few to have its residents harboring the worms causing the above mentioned neglected tropical diseases.
Training of field officials to embark on this exercise took place on Saturday, the 17th of May, 2021. The district disease control officer, Mr Mutala, encouraged the volunteers to work extra hard for the betterment of the district in fighting these two neglected tropical diseases to reduce the existing cases in the district.
Field officials were entreated to work with apathy as it will enable them to carry out their duties to the fullest as they will put themselves into the shoes of the carriers of the diseases.
