"Project 3: Factors Affecting the Acceptability of an Innovative Auto-Dissemination of Insecticides for Reducing Dengue Incidence in the Philippines" under the program "HORIZONTAL AUTO-DISSEMINATION OF PYRIPROXIFEN LARVICIDE (AD-PPF) FOR DENGUE MOSQUITO CONTROL TRIALS IN THE PHILIPPINES"

The project aims provide information on the acceptability or non-acceptability of an intervention, including factors for the success of any campaign on reducing the rate of new dengue cases, among potential victims.

 

Specifically, it aims:

 

  1. To gather data on the socio-demographic characteristics of the subjects in the intervention versus the control group;
  2. To determine the socio-economic condition of the subjects and of the community as benchmark data prior to intervention;
  3. To find out various dengue prevention beliefs and practices in the selected communities;
  4. To identify cultural factors that affect the acceptance or adoption of a new technology or innovation, including their practices in the control and prevention of dengue;
  5. To find out the communities’ attitudes and values and skills in maintaining a healthy community.
