The Acting Director of Dong Nai Department of Science and Technology Huynh Minh Hau and Chairman of the Council addressed the meeting.


The overall objective of the project is to evaluate the effectiveness of the dengue fever prevention and control model through schools. In particular, the specific goal is to improve both public knowledge and practice on dengue fever prevention in households; increase the percentage of people in exemplary commune (An Phuoc commune) with their correct knowledge of and correct practice on dengue fever prevention up to at least 30% compared to when the model was implemented; reduce the rate of dengue fever per 100,000 population to less than 201; reduce 50% of dengue fever patients compared to the average of 3 years ago; reduce 30% of dengue outbreaks according to the regulations of the Ministry of Health compared to the average rate 3 years ago and when there was no epidemic spread. Through the eradication of mosquito larva in households and of students and communication measures in exemplary communes, there were active activities held like killing mosquito larva.


At the meeting, the members of the Council evaluated the contents of the explanation of the research project as highly feasible and essential for the community and in line with the actual situation because at present there is no vaccine for dengue fever. Also, the members of the Council basically agreed with the contents of the project’s explanation and voted for it. However, it is necessary to revise and add some contents accordingly.
