Tata Steel BSL launches massive drive against Dengue and Malaria in Dhenkanal


 About 33,000 villagers from 25 periphery villages to benefit
 Fogging, anti-larval spray, awareness sessions on symptoms, causes and treatment of the
disease are part of the drive
 The drive is continuing for last 3 years
Narendrapur, July 4, 2021:Tata Steel BSL, located at Narendrapur in Dhenkanal district of Odisha, has
proactively launched a massive 3- month long drive against Dengue and Malaria in 25 villages around its
plant. It will benefit around 33,000 villagers from these villages of Dhekanal and Angul districts. The
programme was formally  launched by Mr Chakradhar Parida, Sarapancha, Nuagaon  in the presence of Ms
Renuka Singh, Senior Manager, CSR, Tata Steel BSL and villagers at Raghunathpur village.
The activities include fogging, anti-larval spray and building awareness on symptoms, causes and treatment
of vector borne diseases like dengue and malaria among the villagers. The peripheral villages around the
plant are dengue and malaria prone area and with the onset of rainy season the risk of the disease goes up.
To address this issue, Tata Steel BSL as part of its CSR health programme has been undertaking this drive
for the community since last 3 years.
As part of its health-care initiatives, last month a 100-bed COVID hospital with 10-bed ICU facility developed
by the steel major at Kharagprasad in Dhenkanal was dedicated for the community.
