The World Health Organisation says 2019 so far has been a bad year for dengue fever across the Pacific Region.

The Health Cluster Pacific Co-ordinator says the WHO is currently helping countries like the Marshall Islands in the North and others such as the Cook Islands in the South.

Sean Casey told Jenny Meyer the region's health ministries are tackling dengue outbreaks aggressively but they need help from communities for effective prevention.
