The Dengue Free Malaysia Movement (DFMM) had an excellent event today at the Mines International Exhibition & Convention Centre, Near Kuala Lumpur.
With Keynote speech by Duli Yang Teramat Mulia Raja Muda Selangor Tengku Amir Shah ibin Sultan Sharafuddin Idris Shah AlHaj, and speeches by YBhg Tan Sri Lee Kim Yew, the initiator of DFMM, and YB Tan Sri Datuk Seri Panglima Joseph Kurup, Minister in Prime Minister’s Department.
The event promoted unity in Malaysia to fight against dengue to try to reduce the number of cases, which so far this year alone has resulted in 34,237 cases and 101 deaths in Malaysia.
It is good to see the private sector joining with the Ministry of Health, putting in so much time and effort, to encourage the public to get involved with the fight.
Amongst the initiatives DFMM were offering fogging machines to public groups to empower them to help their own communities.
It was great to be there representing the MosquitoBite App which received a lot of enthusiasm for those present. We hope it can be used as a valuable tool to make Malaysia dengue free.
