News From PremiumTimesNg: The European Union has pledged to assist Nigeria with N32 million humanitarian aid to curb the spread of Lassa fever.

This pledge was announced in a press statement made available to PREMIUM TIMES on Thursday on fight against Lassa Fever.

The union said the funds will be used to assist families affected by the current Lassa Fever outbreak in Nigeria.

The allocation will go towards supporting the Nigerian Red Cross in promoting hygiene practices and disease transmission control, contributing to the identification of suspected cases, supporting contact tracing, and providing psychosocial support.

According to the statement, the humanitarian aid will directly benefit communities in areas most affected by the outbreak.

The funding forms part of the EU’s overall contribution to the Disaster Relief Emergency Fund (DREF) of the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC).

“In the two most affected states, Ondo and Edo, the main actions will focus on health education on signs and symptoms, prevention measure and behavioral change in food storage and handling; pest control activities, such as the distribution of rat traps/rat glues; and psychosocial support to affected people and their families.

“In another four states (Bauchi, Ebonyi, Taraba, and Kano), awareness-raising initiatives will be launched for the general public, including the distribution of educational material and informative radio messages,” it said.

There was a time in the industry not too long ago when it seemed that the high fashion world was using plus size models as a headline-grabbing gimmick to see the groundbreaking cover.
