EntoGenex believes that diseases like dengue are a social issue as much as they are a health issue, and that the success of even the most effective of technologies are restricted by the corresponding level of community engagement.
As such we have developed a revolutionary and holistic approach in fighting such diseases, encapsulated by a methodology known as REAP:
REDUCE incidences of mosquito borne diseases by eradicating the problem at the source through effective biolarviciding
EDUCATE the public to inform and empower them with the knowledge required to eradicate mosquito borne diseases.
ACTIVATE the local community by engaging families and stakeholders to proactively participate in fighting the disease.
PREVENT mosquito borne disease through measures that ensure communities are protected sustainably.
In Malaysia, the REAP philosophy has been implemented in a National Programme to Fight Dengue. The collaborative agenda is directed by MOSTI and supported by Local Government Authorities.
Through the usage of this methodology, Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovation’s Komuniti Bebas Denggi Program has managed to reduce dengue cases in treated hotspots by an average of 54.7 percent over a 3 month implementation period.
