Abstract

It has been more than a hundred years since the very first dengue cases in Malaysia is being reported. Over the last three decades, the dengue epidemic has been increasing terrifically. Nowadays, dengue is one of the major public health problems in our country. More than 80% of the cases are reported in urban area as compare to the rest for rural area. As the dengue cases is increasing inline with more urbanization done in ourMalaysia, we can simply state that there's something wrong with the urbanization. Usually the dengue cases is said to be closely related with the human faults and lack of their concern to the surroundings cleanliness and therefore, they are eventually providing the Aedes mosquito breeding environment which is the particular mosquito acting as the vector of dengue virus transmission to human. Thisproject focuses on the contribution of the engineering structures that can retain water which potentially contribute to the Aedes breeding environment. The study is concerning three common engineering structures which are the septic tank, box for waterdistribution chamber and box for fire hydrant maintenance. The government has done lots of campaign and control measures to overcome the dengue problems. However, as the controlling measures increase, the dengue cases have also increase and this simply indicates that the current measures taken is not going to eliminate or at least control the dengue problems in our county. Hence, alternatives solutions are necessary and this project proposes the biological control of the Aedes mosquito to be promoted and applied nationwide.
