    With the same objective in mind, and as a response to the World Health Organization (WHO)’s call for a more active response to dengue, Tunku launched a localized anti-dengue campaign, “CounterStrike Lamok”. This campaign enlists the support and involvement of the government, local communities and the business sector.

    In a press conference at Crowne Plaza Hotel in Ortigas, Tunku presented a non-toxic, biodegradable material that kills the larvae of mosquitoes, created by a company called EntoGenex Industries. Called Mousticide Biolarvicide, this substance has been approved by the Philippine Food and Drug Administration. 

    Designed to attack the digestive system of dengue-carrying mosquito larvae, the product has been tested in Malaysia, Africa and other tropical countries.
