covered by Rural Health Unit III (RHU-3).

mosquito larvae when directly applied to stagnant water.

commitment to help combat dengue, a mosquito-borne disease that has become
highly prevalent not only in the province but also in most parts of the country.
Signatories of the pact were City Councilors Angie Hizon and Nelson Lingat;
Barangay Captains Herman Quiwa, Rosemary Calimlim, Jerry Canlas and
EdselMiranda; City Health Officer Dr. Eloisa Aquino and RHU-3 Physician Dr. Elma
In her remarks, Aquino stressed the importance of unity and diligence in fighting
dengue within the grassroots.
The CHO will also conduct the drive in the rest of San Fernando’s 35 barangays
before the end of this year.
