Tutaka time again

Saturday December 05, 2015 Written by Published in Health

The Ministry of Health will conduct its end of year Tutaka programme in Rarotonga, starting next week.


The 10-day health inspection programme which starts on Monday, will see health inspectors visiting homes to ensure the surroundings are well maintained.

Following the rainy spell, there is a high chances of a rise in mosquito breeding sites and the ministry is requesting public to clean and destroy mosquito breeding and “resting” places.

Health officials are hoping that there will not be a repeat of the situation last year, when the mosquito-borne virus Chikungunya hit Rarotonga, making hundreds of people extremely ill.
