Small bites, BIG THREATS: protect yourself and your environment from mosquito borne dieses

7 April 2014 is WHO’s 67th birthday and as every year PAHO/WHO highlights a specific health concern.  As Non- Communicable Diseases now dominate the global health agenda, receiving increased attention and resources, we tend to forget that the fight against communicable and infectious diseases is not won, as yet. 

We cannot become complacent about diseases we can prevent and eradicate especially in changing climate, environments and conditions that favor the transmission of several infectious diseases. 

Malaria, dengue, Chagas disease, leishmaniasis, lymphatic filariasis, schistosomiasis, and trachoma continue to have a significant impact in the Americas.  These are vector-borne diseases and that is the reason for this year’s Works Health Day theme: “Small bites, big threats, protect yourself and your environments from vector-borne diseases”
