on April 25, 2014. Melinda and I devote a lot of money and time to finding new and innovative ways to combat deadly diseases. But during a recent visit to Indonesia, I was asked to give something more—my blood.
Given the cause, I happily complied.
I got the request during a stop at Gadjah Mada University in Yogyakarta to check in on an amazing project to control the spread of dengue. Watch this video about my visit:
A mosquito-borne virus that causes serious illness and sometimes death, especially among children, dengue has spread dramatically in recent decades because of population growth and rapid urbanization in tropical and subtropical countries. About half of the world is now at risk of the disease. Last year, dengue cases were even discovered in Florida.Researchers at the university are part of a global effort exploring whether a bacterium called Wolbachia can be used to control dengue. Wolbachia occurs naturally in 70 percent of all insects, and it is harmless to humans. But it can block the transmission of dengue by mosquitoes. Unfortunately, the type of mosquito that carries dengue, Aedes aegypti, doesn’t naturally get Wolbachia, but one group of scientists discovered a way to infect them with it. Now, in partnership with other researchers around the world, they’re raising a colony of Wolbachia mosquitoes to be released in hopes that they will breed with wild mosquitoes and curb the spread of dengue. (The work in Indonesia is being funded by the Tahija Foundation of Indonesia.)Working with local communities, researchers first released Wolbachia mosquitoes in Australia in 2011. In January, with the support of the government and residents, the Indonesian team began releasing Wolbachia mosquitoes in neighborhoods around Yogyakarta. During my visit, I had a chance to release dozens of the Wolbachia mosquitoes into the wild.
I also had an opportunity to speak with members of one neighborhood where the mosquitoes are now breeding. Several people told me about family members who became severely ill from dengue in recent years. One man had lost two family members to the disease. Now, they are optimistic that these mosquitoes will bring relief to the dengue burden in their city.

HRIDAY (Health Related Information Dissemination Amongst Youth) and Visakhapatnam-based Visakha HRIDAY-SHAN in partnership with Public Health Foundation of India will host the 3rd Global Youth Meet from November 19-21, 2014 in Vishakhapatnam, Andhra Pradesh on the theme of Youth, Health and Development. GYM 2014 will enable the youth to deliberate upon and identify their health priorities in the 21st century, particularly in the wake of NCDs. GYM 2014 will also focus on suggesting innovative strategies and techniques to advocate for supportive health policies, nationally and globally, that facilitate a sustainable and healthy future. GYM 2014 hopes to provide a platform that encourages ideas and innovation guided by the methods identified by young people, particularly in low-and middle income countries. It is envisioned that GYM 2014 will help in contextualizing the growing complexities in global public health and their rising social, political and economic implications.
