Abstract

The morbidity and mortality rate of Dengue Hemorrhagic Fever (DHF) causes social and economic impacts. Dengue prevention efforts have not been effective in reducing the incidence of DHF. This research aims to design and develop a prototype early warning system for DHF. This prototype is designed to determine the potential risk of DHF in Padang City. Method: System development in this research uses the Systems Development Life Cycle (SDLC) method of rapid application development with a choice of prototyping system models. Result: Information system development is done by the surveillance of puskesmas and health cadres who perform system input. Presentation of the information is in the form of tables, charts, and maps showing the situational risk of DHF in the work area of Padang. This information system can be accessed online via smartphone or computer. In conclusion, the development of the DHF awareness information system can facilitate decision making and planning in the Padang City Health Office.
