Model Development

Model development for dengue control through a community participation approach should be initiated in order to define potential prime movers in the communities and to study ways to persuade them to participate in vector control activities. Social, economic and cultural factors that promote or discourage the participation of these groups should be intensively studied in order to gain more participation from the community. Model development focusing on school children has been studied in several countries and this strategy should be modified and introduced into each country.
