The Ministry of Health would like to update the public on the current dengue outbreak situation in Port Vila. From 4th February 2022, two dengue cases were confirmed at Vila Central Hospital. These cases had no recent history of travel outside of Vanuatu so the dengue was locally acquired and were identified in the areas of Efate’s peri- urban areas of Erakor and Salili. No suspected or confirmed cases have been reported in other provinces or islands.

Port Vila, Vanuatu - On Tuesday, February 1, the Ministry of Health in partnership with Peace Corps Vanuatu and the Australian Government delivered a Training of Trainers to over 30 participants from non-government organisations about the Vanuatu Outbreak Alert System (VOAS). The partners also launched a mascot design contest to raise awareness of the VOAS and create a logo. The VOAS was launched in August 2021 by Minister of Health, Hon. Silas Bule Melve.
