Campaign Against Dengue

Implementing Organisation : National Environment Agency

Type : Public Health, Awareness

Overview :

NEA believes that active community involvement is the key to keep the mosquito breedings low in homes. To engage the community, NEA adopts a two-pronged communication approach that incorporates a national publicity strategy and a series of target-group specific (e.g. residents, foreign workers/ domestic workers and outbound travelers) outreach programmes. Educational materials such as posters, pamphlets, video/ VCD and booklets are published and distributed to the public. With the strong continual support from our partners like the “Dengue Prevention Volunteer Groups”, grassroots organizations, educational institutions and various government agencies, many outreach initiatives are rolled-out successfully to the community. 

Objectives :

* To educate the public on the dangers of Dengue Fever and Dengue Hemorrhagic Fever 

* To educate Singaporeans on the need to check for stagnant water in their homes and common areas, to prevent the breeding of Aedes mosquito. 

Duration : Ongoing
