 Combating dengue the Combi way

THE Communication for Behavioural Impact (Combi) campaign to combat dengue in Taman Sri Nibong (TSN), Penang, has received the thumbs up from the residents.This was proven by the overwhelming turnout at the launch of the event.

TSN Combi team leader Wong Chow Jeng said the team, established over a month ago with 23 members, would cover several areas in TSN including the Mawar, Melati and Lavinia apartments.

“The Combi team members will visit houses around the area to educate the residents on the importance of checking and removing stagnant water to prevent the breeding of Aedes mosquitoes.

Besides, we will also monitor the drains as they are one of the main breeding grounds,” he told reporters during the launching at the TSN Residents Association (RA) re- cently.

Also present were Deputy Chief Minister I Mohd Rashid Hasnon, who is also Pantai Jerejak assemblyman, and TSN RA president Jeffery Ho.

In his speech, Mohd Rashid urged the people to work together to ensure their residential areas and the state were always cleaner, greener and healthier.

He later presented five Combi vests and kit to the team as a symbolic gesture to mark the official launching of the TSN team.

During a briefing session, Penang south-west district Health Department officer Dr Mohamad Iqbal Hamzah said there were approximately 28 Combi teams in the southwest district.

There were also exhibitions and free blood tests at the launching.

Combi is an approach to influence the community behaviour as part of the dengue prevention campaign.
