What is Dengue?
Dengue is a viral infection carried by mosquitoes. It causes flu-like illness, and occasionally develops into a potentially deadly complication called severe dengue.
The number of people infected with dengue has grown dramatically and approximately half the world's population is at risk.
Preventing and controlling dengue depends on effective control of mosquito breeding sites and personal protection to avoid being bitten by mosquitoes.
It is vital to achieve positive behavioural changes through effective public engagement and education.
Dengue Game is designed to educate those people at risk of dengue. It helps them to identify and remove man-made mosquito breeding sites and also offers advice on personal protection to avoid mosquito bites. It is based on a very successful digital game designed to increase the uptake of the flu vaccine.
