Manhattan, New York - March 13, 2018 - NeoDocto Foundation continues to support the State Governments of India to eradicate malaria disease. Mr. Babanrao Lonikar, Honourable Minister for Water Supply and Sanitation, Government of Maharashtra, India collaborated with NeoDocto Foundation, USA to stop malaria in the state. Madhukar Sanneerappa, Global President and CEO of NeoDocto Inc. informed that "The water management and sanitation will play a key role in controlling malaria disease".
Malaria outbreaks often followed by stagnant water and poor sanitation. The ecology of the disease is associated with the availability of water, as the larval stage of mosquitoes develops in different kinds of water bodies. The mosquito species differ significantly in their water-ecological requirements (stagnant water, brackish water). The construction of sewage and drainage systems in urban areas and irrigation systems including reservoirs in rural areas can have a great impact on malaria and its intensity of transmission.
The Government of Maharashtra’s (GoM’s) Water Supply and Sanitation Department (WSSD) is responsible for both urban and rural water supply and sanitation in the state. GoM declared its vision for the sector through 'Sujal Nirmal Maharashtra' – (clean water, clean Maharashtra) which aims to increase access to safe drinking water and sanitation services to rural communities at an affordable cost in an environmentally sustainable manner. Specific focus will be given to ensuring convergence of various sanitation initiatives -solid waste management, sullage management, providing access to toilets and so on - through the preparation of ‘Village Environmental Sanitation Plans’.
