The project is being piloted in ten schools across different districts. Over 7,900 participating students will learn more about the disease and practical guidance to prevent Dengue at home and in their communities. Schools with outstanding ‘Dengue-zero’ practices, measured by the extent to which larval breeding habitats have been eliminated, will be awarded trophies, certificates, and scholarship funding of up to Baht 30,000.
To pilot the project, a series of workshop will be organized for over 7,900 participants, consisting of students and teachers from ten piloting schools across ten districts of Bangkok. The workshop session will teach about Dengue, how to suppress the population of Aedes mosquitoes and their larvae, and, most importantly, how to prevent and control the spread of infection sustainably in their respective communities. In a later stage of the project, an award recognition for "The Best Dengue-zero School" and "The Best Dengue-zero Student" of their outstanding ‘Dengue-Zero’ practices.
