Dengue Prevention


Dhaka is the highest risk prone area for dengue transmission in Bangladesh. Awareness is the first step in prevention. People should make sure they are aware of whether there is a risk of dengue infection and be ready to protect themselves if they are travelling to a region where infection is common. Despite having moderate knowledge of dengue transmission vectors and symptoms, the preventive practices are not well executed. We conducted an awareness program through miking to make people aware of the causes, symptoms, prevention, necessary steps to take after being infected etc. in association with ADAB (Association of Development Agencies in Bangladesh).
