An estimated 390 million dengue infections arise annually, with most outbreaks in Southeast Asia. Transmission is mainly by Aedes aegypti. With no vaccine or drug treatment available, vector control is the primary means to reduce dengue outbreaks. We worked with the Cambodian Ministries of Health, Education, Youth and Sport, and others to test whether a package of community-implemented self-help tools delivered alongside social and behaviour change interventions could successfully reduce dengue vector populations.
This poster was presented at the 69th annual meeting of the American Society of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene.
