Health

​Mass Deworming Exercise

Because of growing concerns over the surge of intestinal worm infection, NLNG went into a partnership with Glaxo SmithKline and Rivers State Ministry of Health to look at abating the rate of infection and the associated health and educational problems among the children within the communities. This resulted in a Mass Deworming Exercise targeted at school-age children (6-15 years).  In 2013, 80,000 children were dewormed. 2,399 teachers were trained to administer the drugs and provide health education messages to the children in accordance to World Health Organisation's guide on deworming. 272 Public and Private Primary and Junior Secondary Schools in Bonny and the GTS Communities participated in this exercise.

Roll Back Malaria Campaign

In support of the programme launched by both the Federal and Rivers State governments to roll back malaria through improved sanitation habits and use of insecticide treated bed nets, NLNG launched the Roll Back Malaria Campaign in all its host local government areas in Rivers State.

In 2013, during the World Malaria Day Celebration, a total of 3,500 Long Lasting Insecticide Treated Nets (LLIN) were distributed in Bonny while 6,000 pieces of Rapid Diagnostic Test (RDT) Kits for malaria diagnosis were given to Rivers State Ministry of Health as our contribution towards the World Malaria Day celebrations in the state.

HIV/AIDS

As a responsible corporate citizen, NLNG has put in place several programmes to check the spread of the HIV-AIDS virus in Bonny. A significant pointer to this effort is the launch of the Ibanise HIV/AIDS Initiative which is an outfit established by the JIC in 2006 to respond to the growing prevalence of HIV/AIDS in Bonny kingdom.
