Dengue, Malaria, Chikungunya and the Zika virus are just some of the infections mosquitoes transfer to humans.

According to the World Mosquito Program, it is estimated that 700 million cases are recorded annually all over the globe from mosquito-borne diseases, leading to more than 700,000 deaths per year. WHO also believes that mosquito-borne diseases such as malaria are preventable when prevention and control measures are in place.
With Moskeet, Komunidad will be able to help in capturing data on mosquito species and activity to help in information dissemination on curbing the spread of dengue and other related diseases.
