Malaysian Prince Helps Philippine Anti-Dengue Campaign with Mosquito Larvae KillerMalaysian Prince Tunku Naquiyuddin Inbi Jaafar launches a drive against dengue in the Philippines with the support of a company which has developed a larvicide.
Last October 15, Malaysian Prince Tunku Naquiyuddin Inbi Jaafar delivered a speech during his visit to Makati regarding how the Philippines could help prevent the escalating incidences of malaria and dengue.
A former diplomat and a passionate environmentalist, Tunku founded a global non-profit foundation in 1995 called the Yayasan Tunku Naquiyuddin (YTN) focusing on specific concerns, including sports, wellness and the environment. He’s also a member of the World Wide Fund for Nature in Malaysia.ADVERTISEMENT - CONTINUE READING BELOW
In 2010 alone, some 46,171 cases of dengue (resulting in 143 deaths) were recorded in Malaysia, pushing Tunku to start a program called the “Stop Dengue Mission”. The program helps promote awareness about dengue prevention to students and the general public through online means. The said program was comprised of four components, which he collectively called R.E.A.P. (Reduction, Education, Awareness, Bite Protection).CONTINUE READING BELOWRecommended Videos
The status of dengue cases in Malaysia were so severe that their government even resorted to making use of genetically modified mosquitoes earlier this year in order to help bring down the number of the mosquito population. The said genetically modified mosquitoes were created in order to produce offspring with a shorter lifespan.
Only the female Aedes Aegypti mosquito carries dengue, and it normally lays five clutches of eggs during its 30-day life. The project was eventually ended due to the public’s fears that it might potentially breed even more harmful mosquitoes.ADVERTISEMENT - CONTINUE READING BELOW1 of 2 NEXT
