Striving together for a Puerto Rico free from mosquito-borne disease

One bite is enough!

In 2016, Puerto Rico registered 38,058 confirmed cases of Zika, dengue, and chikungunya.

Aedes aegypti is the vector that transmits those diseases.

This mosquito needs containers with accumulated water to complete its life cycle.

One of the easiest ways to reduce diseases carried by Aedes aegypti is by reducing mosquito breeding sites.

AFTER THE HURRICANE…

Say NO to the Aedes aegypti mosquitoes!
