Dengue fever, also known as breakbone fever, is an infectious tropical disease caused by the dengue virus.
"The Department of Science and Technology (DOST) through its Science and Technology Information Institute (STII) in collaboration with the Philippine Council for Health Research and Development (PCHRD) launched an anti-dengue comics using the mother tongue in Eastern Visayas.
Aristotle P. Carandang of DOST-STII said that the OL Trap comics written in Filipino and in various dialects including Ilocano, Pampango, Bicol, Waray-waray, Hiligaynon, and Cebuano were distributed to the regions to raise the knowledge and awareness of community folks on dengue and the OL Trap."
Visual storytelling through sequential art, still relying primarly on print for mass distribution and older than #transmedia stories built on multi-platform technology, is still effective at altering behavior and creating social good. It's vital to consider the audience and how to reach them in simple and effective methods, rather than a "technology first" approach.
