Dengue was epidemic in Pakistan previously but now it has become endemic in disease-affected areas like Punjab. This cross-sectional was planned to determine that why dengue fever has been decreasing in southern Punjab, Pakistan and to highlight the positive effects of the dengue control programs launched in southern Punjab. The majority (76%) of the respondents were educated. Most of them (88%) were familiar with mosquitoes’ involvement in the dissemination of diseases like dengue fever. Approximately 52% of respondents reported that media was the main source of awareness, while 32% dealt with mosquitoes by themselves. About 41% and 28% surveyed people used oil and net as a preventive measure against mosquitoes, respectively. While the 23.2% of graduates use the net as a preventive measure against mosquitoes. Concluding, disease management programs are more successful when people are educated as they adopt preventive measures more efficiently.
