Abstract

The Department of Health, Region VIII Office, along with Oxford for Families conducted a program on the installation of Long Lasting Insecticide Treated Nets combined with barangay surveillance activities around six identified elementary schools and surrounding communities in Tacloban City, Leyte, Philippines. The purpose of this paper was to mirror issues on the installation activities and to forge solutions as direct community interventions in the fight against dengue-causing mosquitoes. Some of the issues forwarded were difficulty in the installation procedure, lack of proper communication as a mobilization campaign between the school principals and carpenters thereby reducing the efficacy of installed nets, and the absence of evaluation of the program that would identify short-term and long-term solutions. Lastly, the importance of theory illuminated through intricate applications provided a robust scrutiny of the prevailing issues in the overall health campaign.
