Phase 2 was to develop and draft a model based on literature review and the first phase results, then validated by a panel of experts. The data were analysed using percentage. Phase 3 was to study the model’s effectiveness. A total of 68 community leaders were recruited from sub-districts with purposive sampling. The tools used were collaboration model and a participation questionnaire. Data were analysed using descriptive statistics and paired t-test. Results revealed as follows:

  1. 1. The collaboration factors influencing community leaders to participate in DHF prevention had shown statistically significant at .001 (p = .001) with 51.0% (adj.R2 = .510, p < .001).
