GX launches vector-borne disease prevention programme in Bolikhamxay

GX launched its vector-borne disease prevention and education programme at Bolikhamxay Provincial Hospital and Hongxay Community Health Centre, located in central Laos. The health centre provides basic check up, vaccination and outreach services. Only basic level screening and eye drops are provided at the health centre, while the hospital accommodates patients who need surgery. In the rainy climate of the area, water leaking and stagnant water are persistent issues at the health centre.

We hope the donation of mosquito lamps and knowledge sharing will eliminate the numbers of vectors in clinics causing disease and discomfort to the patients and health workers.
