Community Organization Guide

It is a tool that guides the community leadership, to motivate / involve the community in the implementation of the plan that will help to control the sources and hatcheries of the mosquito Aedes aegypti of the houses and common spaces.

This Guide is distributed in the final phase of the Project, with the purpose that the Community / family take responsibility for good practices, to keep mosquito-free Aedes aegypti, transmitter of Zika, Dengue and Chikungunya.

The methodology is participatory. Its distribution is done through social networks (WhatsApp), as part of an environmental practice (paper cost and accumulation of waste, which constitute one of the potential sources of Aedes aeypti breeding sites).

Because of the methodology, it is a guide that can guide any health issue.
