2019 Core Values Awards Case Study | Dengue Out Program Northern Peninsula Area Cape York Qld
Working Visions with World Mosquito Program, Northern Peninsula Area Regional Council and Tropical Public Health Service | Indigenous Project winner
Working Visions led the Community Engagement and Communications Strategy planning and delivery for the Tropical Public Health Service (TPHS) Cairns, on the Dengue Out Program. The Dengue Out Program is a collaboration between Tropical Public Health Service Cairns, the World Mosquito Program (WMP) and the Northern Peninsula Area Council (NPARC).
This ground-breaking program was carried out on the Northern Peninsula Area (NPA) of Cape York, which is made up of three Aboriginal communities – Umagico, Injinoo and New Mapoon; and two Torres Strait Islander communities – Seisia and Bamaga. The NPA region is approximately 1,000 kilometres north-west of Cairns by road.
