LASSA FEVER PREVENTION: Ilesa East LG Health Officers Take Campaign to Monday Market

As part of ongoing efforts aimed at curtailing the spread of Lassa fever, the Ilesa East Local Government under the administration of Hon. (Otunba) Akeem Adesoji Olowoopejobori has taken the sensitization to the market men and women on the prevention of lassa fever and other communicable diseases.

Over the past few days, the Health Officers of the Council have been used in an attempt to affect various health behaviours of the people. Such campaigns have most notably been aimed at killing of rats, protecting food items from their reach and many other health-related issues.
