Deadline: 30 November 2016
Do you have an initiative or campaign that could help to combat dengue fever in your community through behavioral change? Share your project and be in with a chance to win €10,000 to expand the impact of your campaign.
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.
The Synergist is 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.
Perhaps applicants are an expert in vector control, prevention, surveillance, or other relevant fields. Applicants might be a healthcare professional in a country impacted by dengue. Or perhaps an active member of a community involved in the fight against dengue.

- Show scalability potential
- Demonstrate potential sustainability
- Arise from understanding and insights to community’s needs, drivers, barriers, priorities and strengths
