  2. 2. Dengue fever has become the most important mosquito-borne viral disease affecting humans in nearly 100 tropical countries. The global distribution of vector mosquitoes and viruses is comparable to that of malaria. An estimated 2.5 billion people are currently living in areas at risk of localized and widespread epidemics. In view of the persistence of dengue in Malaysia and the countries of the Asia and Pacific Region, MAEH in its capacity as Chairman of the International Federation of Environmental Health (IFEH) Asia and the Pacific Regional Group, in partnership with PETRONAS University of Technology (UTP) advocates an integrated and systematic approach to address this problem. The aim of this conference is to bring together the collective experiences of operational and field research personnel and formulate innovative strategies and best practices for a sustainable approach towards the prevention and control of dengue. Through this approach the global distribution of both vector mosquitoes and the viruses can be controlled to a level which will reduce the risk of cross introduction between countries in this region and elsewhere. HOTEL ACCOMMODATION Recommended accommodations: INTRODUCTION OBJECTIVES • To encourage the World Health Organization (WHO) to emphasize the need to strengthen and upgrade existing Environmental Health Services in each member country. • To formulate an Environmental Health Management strategic plan for Local Governments to adopt cost-effective measures for sustainable prevention and control of dengue in urban centers as part of Local Agenda 21. • To propose the re-assessment, design and re-engineering of urban water supply, drainage, solid waste and sewerage disposal systems. • To integrate existing networks between Government agencies and NGOs for continued research in vector control both locally and abroad. • To promote the establishment and maintenance of local bio-diversity and prevent the introduction of invasive species for the preservation and natural recovery of urban ecosystems.
