National Vector Borne Disease Control Programme – Directorate of National Vector Borne Disease Control Program-NVBDCP which was the focal nodal organization for the anticipation and control of vector-borne maladies i.e. Intestinal sickness, Dengue, Lymphatic Filariasis, Kala-azar, Japanese Encephalitis and Chikungunya in India. One of the Technical Departments with the Directorate General of Health Services which is formed by Government of India.

At the season of autonomy, there were an evaluated 75 million instances of jungle fever and 0.8 million passing’s because of intestinal sickness were being accounted for yearly.

Thusly, the rate of wilderness fever cases slid from 75 million cases in 1953 to 2 million cases in 1958 in India. In 1958 this control program was traded over to National Malaria Eradication Program (NMEP), under which at first every house in the State was to be showered with DDT twice every year. Later on, showering was with-drawn however perception practices were finished overwhelmingly. This went on however dynamically wilderness fever event began to rise. In Punjab State, the number of intestinal ailment cases went from 321 of each 1966 to 5 lacs in 1977.

About National Vector Borne Disease Control Programme

Because of this set back to the program, a changed procedure was begun called “Adjusted Plan of Operation” (MPO) w.e.f. 1.4.1977. Under this, all the rustic populace and towns having under 40,000 populaces were under dynamic reconnaissance. Out of 10 Units, 9.65 zones went into upkeep and rest of the region of 0.35 Units in mix arrange in the midst of 1967.

On the proposal of Government, the arrangement was introduced in the Punjab State and starting now and into the foreseeable future the arrangement is in nearness in the State on 50:50 sharing the reason. Under this arrangement, simply those sub-focal points of the squares will be secured for sprinkle, who having Annual Parasitic Index(API) is no less than 2 than 2. Under this arrangement, the Govt. of India gave the products (in kind) i.e. DDT half, Tab. Chloroquine, Primaquine 2.5mg and Primaquine 7.5 mg., and so on as its half offer.
