The National Vector Borne Disease Control Programme (NVBDCP) is an umbrella programme for prevention and control of malaria and other vector borne diseases viz., Lymphatic Filariasis, Kala-azar, Japanese Encephalitis, Chikungunya and Dengue with special focus on the vulnerable groups of the society namely, children, women, scheduled castes (SC) and scheduled tribes (ST). Under the programme, it is ensured that the disadvantaged and marginalised sections benefit from the delivery of services so that the desired National Health Policy and Rural Health Mission goals are achieved.
The Directorate of NVBDCP under the Directorate General of Health Services, Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, Government of India, is the nodal agency responsible for planning, coordination, implementation, monitoring and evaluation of NVBDCP programme at all levels.
In its endeavour to provide a central resource centre for all the IEC and BCC materials concerning the above mentioned six vector borne diseases, the Directorate of NVBDCP envisaged the creation of this web-based repository. The repository contains IEC and BCC materials developed under NVBDCP programme at national and state levels.
