Despite the city's low dengue attack rate, Taguig's local government held a Dengue Summit from July 17-19 to raise awareness of the disease and how to stop it from spreading throughout the society.

The three-day planning workshop was held in the midst of a national dengue alert Department of Health statement. Themed "End Dengue: Starts With Me," the summit also took place as of June 30 even with a low attack rate of 3.29 percent and zero deaths as of the same period.

Barangay District 1 and 2 officials and representatives of the DepEd Division of Taguig City and Pateros learned more specifically about the roles of Aksyon Barangay Kontra Dengue (ABKD) in the society, the significance of ovicidal and larvicidal traps, and integrated vector management.

The attendees also learned to practice the enhanced 4S in dealing with dengue--Search and destroy all mosquito breeding sites, Self protection measures, Seek early consultation and Say "YES" to space spraying and residual spraying in areas with dengue clustering--from highly qualified and known personalities in the medical and academic fields.

These included University of the Philippines-Manila's College of Public Health Prof. Myra Mistica,  DOH-National Capital Region Entomologist Mr. Dominic Sotto and DOH-NCR's Ms. Chimmy Dawn Aquino.

Also in attendance during the event were DILG-Taguig City Director Gemma Dancil and Barangay Affairs Office officer-in-charge Ms. Evelyn Arago.

"Even before DOH's declaration of a national dengue alert on Monday, the city has long been planning for this Dengue Summit to gather all barangays officials because you have a crucial role in fighting this viral disease in the community," Mayor Lino Cayetano said during the last day of the summit in Antipolo, Rizal.

Mayor Lino challenged every barangay to aim for the lowest Dengue attack rate or have a significantly lower attack rate for the disease in their respective areas.

According to a presentation during the summit, the city's target was an attack rate of less than 5 percent and a fatality rate of less than one percent.

The mayor also highlighted that with the help of the barangays, the city will be able to ensure that Taguig will remain a healthy city ensuring healthy lives and well-being for all.

Taguig has long been proactive with its fight against dengue with its year-round misting and larviciding operations and cleanup drives to eliminate mosquito breeding sites. Larvitraps are also distributed and set up in various barangays in the city. Aside from these measures, dengue lectures and trainings are conducted in schools and in the 28 barangays to raise awareness on the viral illness and how it can be prevented.
