The Environmental Health Division delivers a host of environmental health services through five existing programmes:

  • Food Hygiene
  • Water Quality and Institutional Hygiene
  • Vector Control
  • Wastewater and General Environmental Sanitation
  • Port Health

The activities of the specific programmes are carried out by trained Environmental Health Officers who are assigned to the Public Health District and in some cases special duties under a programme.  The Vector Control Unit is staffed with eight Vector Control Officers who visit all premises around the territory to conduct surveillance for mosquito breeding.
