Dabbawallahs joined hands with WHO

To eradicate vector borne diseases.

The World Health Organisation (WHO) has joined hands with Mumbai’s Dabbawallahs to spread awareness about the ill-effects of the vector borne diseases by using lunch-boxes.

On the occasion of World Health Day, 7th April, WHO, the Nutan Mumbai Tiffin Box Suppliers’ Charity Trust (NMTBSCT) and the Maharashtra Government would kick-start the awareness programme which is aimed at the prevention and control of vector-borne diseases in the state.

Speaking to the media, Dr Nata Menabde, India Representative, WHO, said, “One of the reasons for the rise in vector-borne diseases in the country is the weak collaboration between agencies, sectors and levels of government including the regulatory mechanism.”

Raghunath Medge, President, NMTBSCT, said, “We would be reaching out to a large number of Mumbaikars, and this certainly would have a multiplier effect on spreading the message on prevention measures, especially sanitisation. We are very happy to join hands with WHO for a good cause.”
