The City Health Office in partnership with the Department of Health (DOH) Region 1 and the Provincial Government of La Union led the anti-dengue drive last Wednesday, June 7 in Barangay Catbangen as part of the series of activities for the National Dengue Awareness Month.
As part of the awareness campaign, recyclable materials such as disposed rubber tires, plastic containers, and glass bottles were collected from residents in exchange for a kilo of rice. Common places with stagnant water were also cleaned up to prevent dengue mosquito habitation that further leads to the spread of the disease.
