Planning Social Mobilization and Communication for Dengue Fever Prevention and Control: A Step-by-Step Guide
A major obstacle to effective implementation of selective, integrated mosquito control has been the inability of ministries of public health to mobilize and coordinate the resources needed to achieve and sustain behavioural impact among populations at risk of dengue fever and dengue hemorrhagic fever (DF/DHF). This guide offers a comprehensive and innovative managerial insight to planning social mobilization and communication for behavioural impact (COMBI strategy). This page offers access to an abstract, executive summary, and the full-text guide complete with tools.

Risk Perception and Strategies for Mass Communication on Dengue in the Americas
The general strategy for preventing and controlling dengue and dengue hemorrhagic fever is based on promoting behavior changes that lead to incorporating the community in controlling the disease, particularly the vector. In order to achieve this, mass communication programs on dengue should have two primary aims: converting information into practice and encouraging the community to take over prevention and control measures, based on local sanitation structure, community organizations, the roles of different family members, and PAHO's decalogue of key practices. This page offers the abstract of the article with a link to the Pan American Journal of Public Health, where it was published.

Drains & You: A Manual for Drainage Maintenance Workers
This manual is useful not only for drainage workers engaged in cleaning and repairing secondary drains, working for ministries and local governments, but also for the general public in making them aware of the role drains play in public health and safety. In the latter sense, it serves as a social-communication tool to raise community awareness of the general public of domestic-sanitation issues and their effect on public health. This page offers the entire manual for field use, with chapters downloadable in PDF.
