The Break Dengue Community Action Prize offers €10,000 for projects that maximize the impact of public health interventions by integrating the new vaccine into the anti-dengue arsenal.

Dengue causes nearly 400 million infections annually, impacting half of the world’s population. It is an enormous public health challenge that demands a collective effort.
That’s why we need your participation.

New tools, including the world’s first vaccine, innovative vector control measures and smarter surveillance systems could be game-changers. But only if we use them.

For these technologies to improve public health, community-based programs will play a key role. The scope for behavioral changing interventions is considerable.

We are looking for pilot initiatives or simply ideas to design and test new approaches to integrating a dengue vaccine as part of a holistic plan to combat dengue. These ideas or initiatives should ideally identify, understand and address community-level drivers and barriers for dengue vaccine integration, its sustained uptake and/or compliance.

Do you have an initiative or campaign that could help to combat dengue fever in your community through behavioral change? Share your project with us and be in with a chance to win €10,000 to expand the impact of your campaign.

Proposals should:
- Have SMART goals (Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant, Time-bound)
- Show scalability potential
- Demonstrate potential sustainability
- Arise from understanding and insights to community’s needs, drivers, barriers, priorities and strengths
- Consider monitoring & ongoing evaluation
