Manpower And Maintenance Services Limited To Host Seminar On Dengue Fever

Manpower And Maintenance Services Limited To Host Seminar On Dengue Fever

To show its appreciation for the partnership forged with its clients, Manpower held its annual Client Seminar in February 2019. The theme of the event was “Mosquito Borne Diseases: Dengue Fever: Impact on the Workforce Productivity and Communities.

The Seminar which is also sponsored by and H&L Agro, will be opened by Minister of Health Dr. the Honourable Christopher Tufton and is accessible to both clients of the Company as well as members of the public. It will seek to heighten awareness about the diseases associated with the mosquito, with a focus on dengue fever.

According to Chairman and CEO of MMS, Audrey Hinchcliffe, “Given the nature of our business we see it as part of our responsibility to help to spread the word and change attitudes and behavior concerning these diseases which are directly related to how we dispose of waste and manage the environment in which we live.” Mrs. Hinchcliffe said, “Because we have become accustomed to having mosquitoes around, and despite our experience with Chik V and the Zika virus, many persons still do not understand that mosquitoes are deadly pests and that we can and should do much more to control their numbers in our homes and communities.” This is an effort, she added, “to provide vital information on the impact of these diseases on our workforce and by extension our communities and country and provide strategies for control.”

The Seminar will include presentations from several experts representing a wide cross section of areas on topics such as: The Epidemiology of Dengue Fever; Diagnosis and Treatment Protocols; Infection Control; Decreasing Exposure: Pest Management and Control; Impact on Worker and Community Productivity; Mitigation Strategies and Resource Requirements. A panel discussion will explore the impact on communities and sectors of the economy, including tourism.
