Dengue is a priority disease in Myanmar, which has experienced an average of more than 17,000 dengue cases each year since 2010, most of which occur in children under 10. With therapeutic and preventive drugs not yet available — and a vaccine that remains mostly unused due to side-effects — effective vector control is the best way to fight the disease. This requires community involvement and context-specific interventions. The My School project in Myanmar aims to assess the impact of integrated vector control and community-based participatory interventions in schools.
