ASEAN Dengue Day on June 15

The region will be celebrating the ASEAN Dengue Day on June 15 at Bastida Elementary School here which is part of Talomo District where the highest number of dengue cases was posted in 2010.
Apart from observing every month of June as Dengue Awareness Month being the peak period of the mosquito-borne viral disease, the Department of Health will also be spearheading for the first time the commemoration of the ASEAN Dengue Day in the country.

DOH said the ASEAN health ministers have set the event on June 15 and every year thereafter in a bid to “foster more awareness” about the disease.

In the region, the DOH-Center for Health Development together with the inter-agency Regional Anti-Dengue Task Force, will start the celebration with a motorcade from its regional office going to Bastida Elementary School in Dumoy, Talomo District, where a short program will highlight the 4-S campaign against dengue.
