The Environmental Sanitation Office in Zliten announced the launch of a campaign to reduce the incidence of leishmaniasis in the municipality.

"The campaign will involve several stages, including the awareness-raising aspect, in addition to controlling the disease-transmitting vector -the sandfly- in cooperation with the Public Utilities Company of Zliten," the office clarified on Facebook.

It also noted that the National Center for Disease Control Zlitan had provided therapeutic drugs for patients with leishmaniasis skin to alleviate the suffering of the injured.
