About the session
The Intervention for Dengue Epidemiology in Malaysia (iDEM) program aims to reduce the threat to public health and global economies caused by dengue. iDEM focuses on reassessing a traditionally reactive approach to treating dengue and other vector-borne diseases, while at the same time demonstrating the effectiveness of ongoing management programs that are grounded in prevention.
