Mumbai, Apr 27 (UNI) In a bid to promote wellness in society, three leading companies have joined hands for a common objective to fight against malaria by spreading awareness about the diseases among the masses.
Metropolis Health Services, Ipca Laboratories and Pest Control India have taken up the mission to provide anti-malarial solutions across three different areas to provide leading pest management, expert diagnostics and anti-malarial drugs.
Metropolis Health Services Chairman Sushil Shah said in a statement here today, ''We have decided to form an association exclusively for malaria, which will not only help to save lives, but it will also promote wellness in our society. Through the foundation, we wish to enhance awareness about cause, prevention and treatment among the target communities and healthcare service providers through information, communication and education.'' Malaria has become a global problem resulting to over one million deaths each year. Malaria touches a serious toll of illness and death amongst pregnant women and children who are largely affected with the problem, he added.
