SEACO in Sinar Harian – 28 November 2016

This article focused on the mDengue application which was launched by the Minister of Health, Datuk Seri Dr S. Subramaniam at Batu Anam on 20 November 2016. SEACO had started to develop the mobile application & website in November 2015 and began field trials in April 2016 with the District Health Office and a team of community volunteers. This application aims to become a tool for the community to take pictures before and after taking actions to eliminate potential and confirmed mosquito breeding sites. By using this application, the District Health Office will be able to monitor these activities. They can also inform the community about the necessary actions which can be taken to control dengue transmission in an effective way.
