Saving Future Lives from Dengue Fever, an Infectious Disease Spread by Mosquitoes

GUARD OUR FUTURE project logo

In Southeast Asia, Dengue fever, an infectious disease spread by mosquito bites, is a social problem that threatens the lives of people, particularly children.
Kao has therefore developed a new repellent technology that alters the skin's surface to give it properties disliked by mosquitoes so preventing them from staying on the skin.
In addition to setting up a system to deliver this technology to those who need it, we have launched initiatives to reduce the damage caused by Dengue fever, initially in Thailand, in collaboration with government, industry, and academia.
To make their lives mosquito bite free, we are promoting these initiatives to protect future lives from Dengue fever under the name of "GUARD OUR FUTURE" project.
