Over many decades, the effect of Dengue has been prevalent in many poor countries. There have been many charities and organizations that have been working very hard to raise awareness among people regarding healthy environment and precautions that ought to be undertaken. Dengue fever is an infectious tropical disease caused by the dengue virus. The symptoms include fever, headache, muscle and joint pains, and a characteristic skin rash that is similar to measles.
Despite various measures taken by the World Health Organization (WHO), the number of cases regarding dengue has increased substantially in Southeast Asian countries. According to the statement made by the Western Pacific Regional Office of WHO, "Dengue remains a serious public health threat with the Asia-Pacific region bearing 75% of the current global disease burden. Dengue cannot be defeated by the health sector alone. It needs the involvement of both private and public sector stakeholders".
In order to make sure that the number of cases of dengue are brought down and the situation is curtailed in the South East Asian countries, WHO have urged all the members of the Association of South-East Asian Nations (ASEAN) to come together and find out ways to tackle this disease.
