  1. Hi Ms. Sana,

    I found your project on Dengue Fever in the Philipines very informative and educational! I like how you discussed the three phases and how the Hemorrhagic Fever is divided into four grades. You were also very thorough when you discussed environmental management, biological control and chemical control. Nice job!

    Thanks,

  2. Hi Camille:

    Considering the political climate in the Philippines what do you think would be the best public health approach to reduce the prevalence of this disease in this country? Aside from what you have discussed in your presentation?

  4. Hi!

    True. we need to make our community aware on the danger of the disease (dengue). But the problem is, even when people are aware, we are continue to ignore those possible habitat in our own backyard. hayyy… very discouraging.
