The Lions International has launched a project, funded by the Global Fund to fight Aids, Tuberculosis and Malaria (GFATM), to supply free mosquito nets to low income families in the Northeast Province. Under this scheme the distribution of 16,000 mosquito nets began in Trincomalee district Sunday to control the spread of malaria in resettled villages where sanitation facilities are poor, sources said

Three have died due to brain fever, one at Nilaveli refugee camp and others at Morawewa and Uppuveli in the past two months, medical sources said.

As the rainy season has started, the outbreak of dengue fever is expected in low-lying areas due to water stagnation, which is the breeding ground for mosquitoes, health authorities have warned.
