Dengue is the most rapidly spreading mosquito-borne viral disease in the world and Cambodia has one of the highest per-capita incidence rates in the region. Without a widely available vaccine or therapeutics, vector control is the most effective way to fight dengue in Cambodia. This trial explored the community’s perceptions and acceptability of, as well as willingness to pay for, vector control tools such as guppy fish and pyriproxyfen after communication for behavioural impact activities had taken place through a qualitative assessment.
This presentation was delivered at the 67th annual meeting of the American Society of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene in New Orleans in October 2018.
