The Department of Health Recife (PE) met on Wednesday (13) with the Archbishop of Olinda and Recife, Dom Fernando Saburido to discuss strategies that will be used in parishes to raise awareness of communities in dengue prevention. Among the immediate initiatives will be mobilized about 200 priests for the campaign began.

According to the director of health surveillance director of the city, Adeildo Ferraz, the idea is that the priests at the end of Mass, guide the public about oral hydration, asking the faithful to consume plenty of fluids daily - an average of four liters of water , juice, milk, tea - so that those cases already diagnosed are not concerned with major complications by going to the most severe form of the disease, dengue hemorrhagic fever that is said.

The campaign will last three months (June, July and August). The Archbishop Fernando Saburido will summon the clergy of the Catholic Church to begin the operation to combat dengue. Already arranged a meeting with the clergy, which will gather between 150 and 200 priests working in the archdiocese, which the secretariat will also participate by providing guidance for the priests to share with communities.

The Health Department will also operate in other segments such as religious evangelical churches. We need civil society organizations. The more people join, the better, said Adeildo Ferraz.
