Dengue Awareness Month

June is designated as Dengue Awareness Month by Proclamation No. 1204  (DILG). Dengue fever remains a significant health concern in the Philippines. Dengue mosquitoes are active throughout the day, with peak biting times between 6AM-8AM and 4PM-6PM. These mosquitoes breed in stagnant water found in various containers like storage tanks, flower pots, and discarded items.
