CLIMATE CHANGE AND DISEASES: AWARENESS-RAISING WORKSHOPS

Nepal is one of many countries which are affected by climate change. Previously the high-altitude Himalayan country never had to worry about mosquitoes, unlike other Asian countries. However, due to climate change, Nepal became hospitable to disease-carrying mosquitoes.
Most recently, there has been an unprecedented outbreak of dengue, a disease transmitted by mosquitoes. Since August 2019, more than 9.000 people across Nepal have been diagnosed with dengue.
CPCS Alliance hosts several awareness-raising workshops to inform about the disease and how people can protect themselves.
