Integrated research framework approaches to the control of dengue diseases for achieving sustainable development goals in Malaysia

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Integrated research framework approaches are designed to create smart strategies to control dengue diseases in Malaysia. These approaches combine ecosystem approaches to health, or Eco-health, adaptive management and community participation in decision-making process. The processes may look somewhat complex, but each approach has its strength when it comes to control dengue diseases. A review of the collaboration between the various approaches can improve ecosystem services, encourage socio-cultural empowerment, improve health awareness and foster economic growth with less impact on human beings and the environment. Informative knowledge regarding Eco-health is essential for providing an understanding of the ecosystem from measurement in adaptive management. The adaptive management from all expertise will lead good governance and guaranteed community rights with regard to ensure their participation in decision-making process. Therefore, we carried out a survey on 399 respondents in Klang Valley, Malaysia to evaluate their attitudes by looking their participation on developing their trust in key actors and informed consent in terms of implementation on dengue’s control techniques. The justification for this study is that we really need an integrated research approaches to make sure the informative knowledge about dengue diseases, that the correct methods for prevention are well known, that safe products with regard to prevention are ready to apply, that health management with regard to dengue is effective, that good governance exists in terms of policy, and the most important is high level of community participation. Consequently, it is necessary to look at the real situation of dengue cases in Malaysia by giving space to all stakeholders involved to choose the best way to preserve environment without dengue, to ensure healthy lives and to help the nation achieve its sustainable development goals.
