AGARTALA, Feb 10 (TIWN): Along with the whole nation Tripura also has celebrated National Deworming day.

Across schools Deworming tablets were provided to the children. Teachers took an active participation in this mission.

The Ministry of Health and Family Welfare (MoHFW) Government of India is implementing the National Deworming Day in schools and preschools (anganwadis) across India on 10 February 2016. 
 
To combat parasitic worm infections among preschool (anganwadi) and school-age children, albendezole 400 mg chewable tablets will be administered to children at government, government-aided, and private schools, and anganwadis. Out-of-school children will be administered the deworming tablet at anganwadis.
 
The National Deworming Day will be followed by a mop-up day on February 15, 2017 to administer the deworming tablet to children who were absent from the school or anganwadi on 10 February.
