Children are individuals who are extremely vulnerable to be infected with dengue. Thus, it is important for us, especially, the allied health professionals to-be, to take the initiatives to raise health awareness about dengue. This can be done by educating and assisting the communities around us in preventing dengue. Cases and deaths due to the dengue infection are increasing every year, thus prevention from this disease can provide a way out, instead of a temporary solution.

We believe nobody should be left behind in educating the public, thus, a team of PPSK students prepared a theatre drama performance on dengue and its prevention techniques. The theatre script and the performance were specially crafted for children and were made informative and entertaining while engaging the children to the knowledge that was intended to be delivered in an understandable way. Apart from that, there were also games and activities for kindergarten children to participate in and to strengthen their understanding towards the knowledge of dengue.
