Every year since 2011, June 15 has been designated ASEAN Dengue Day in the 10 member-states of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations. This annual advocacy campaign day for dengue prevention and control provides countries in the region with a common platform for promoting cooperation and exchange among stakeholders on raising dengue awareness and prevention. Dengue has an immense social, economic and human impact on the countries of Southeast Asia. Of the estimated 2.5 billion people at risk of dengue throughout the world, 1.8 billion live in the Asia Pacific region.
The activities planned in different countries include seminars, public information sessions, educational games, exhibitions, videos, a painting contest, parades and even a dengue dance competition.
