An open sewer clogged with trash is a perfect breeding ground for disease-carrying mosquitoes in Recife, Brazil.

Basic sanitation is the first line of defense against mosquito-borne infections. World Vision and local authorities are rallying school children and parents, community leaders, and churches to encourage everyone to protect themselves from mosquito bites and eliminate standing water where mosquitoes can breed.

The peak time for mosquito-borne infections occurs in the rainy season. During the months of April and May, the neighborhoods with open sewers and poor housing will be the target of clean-up campaigns to prevent Zika and other diseases.
