Inauguration of the national Dengue prevention programme for 2020 was held at the Fisheries Harbour premises, Galle on the 7th of January 2020. Hon Minister of Health and Indigenous Medicine and other dignitaries graced occasion.

This inauguration marks the initiation of an island-wide Dengue Prevention Campaign, targeting high risk MOH areas in 8 districts from 7th to 9th January. This fisheries harbour was the epicenter of a Dengue outbreak in 2018, where extensive efforts were put in place by the health and harbour authorities to mitigate the situation. This demonstrates the complexity of responding to Dengue outbreaks where contributions from groups like fisheries community are of vital importance.
