Why is Dengue Still a Problem?

Dr Shreema Rasiah, Public Health Physician & Gombak District Health Officer | Dr Tharani Loganathan, Public Health Specialist, Department of Social and Preventive Medicine, University Malaya

Why

Dengue continues to be a serious problem in Malaysia. In the first half of this year (Jan-May 2019), we had more than 46,000 dengue cases, with 74 deaths reported. Why aren’t we getting anywhere with dengue prevention and Aedes control efforts? Is the world’s first dengue vaccine safe, especially after what happened in the Philippines? We find out more from Dr Shreema Rasiah, Public Health Physician & Gombak District Health Officer, as well as Dr Tharani Loganathan, Public Health Specialist from the Department of Social and Preventive Medicine, University Malaya.
