PAHO donates a Vehicle with 2 fogging machines to government, to help prevent a Zika-Virus invasion. The Ministry of Health says its goal in reducing mosquito breeding sites on island has gotten a bit easier because of that donation.
Last week, the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO) presented the Health Ministry with a $138,000 Nissan Frontier Van with the 2 fogging machines attached.
PAHO Country Representative Shirley Augustine presented the keys to the Parliamentary Secretary in the Ministry of Health Ivor Stephenson.
Augustine says PAHO recognized the need for a vehicle to assist the Ministry of Health in its vector control activities.
