source of water supply..
mosquito breeding places
anti mosquito measures done there..
sanitation..
source of medical health care if someone gets ill...
members presently ill...their symptoms...

anyone who is chronicly ill..
the cases(which brought us there)we took their snaps...and called the cases to college for treatment..
