Dengue fever is a serious, sometimes fatal illness, which has been increasing in recent years in Indonesia. It is spread by a type of mosquito which can breeds in very small amounts of water - including rainwater captured by litter, such as discarded plastic bags.

This project has addressed this problem in a village outside Yogyakarta, Central Java, Indonesia, through an ambitious waste management and recycling program, including changing people's habits in discarding rubbish.

Current status

Very sadly, the village was mostly destroyed in the May 2006 earthquake. Dr Iswanto is continuing to work with villages, and providing email updates to supporters in Australia.
