Break Dengue Community Action Prize to be awarded at ISNTD Festival!
The Break Dengue €10,000 Community Action Prize is an initiative aimed at finding and awarding pilot initiatives or simply ideas to design and test new approaches to integrating a dengue vaccine as part of a holistic plan to combat dengue. The application period closed on December 20th, 2016.
67 submissions from NGOs, healthcare professionals, vector control specialists or simply active community members entered the competition. All of them proposed ideas on how to educate communities on the dengue risk, help implement prevention measures and address community-level drivers and barriers for dengue vaccine integration.
An expert jury is currently carefully analysing all the initiatives and the winner will be announced during the ISNTD Festival’s award ceremony. The winner will receive €10,000 to increase the impact of their idea.
