Knowledge, Attitudes and Practice (KAP) survey on infectious diseases among general population in Brunei

Studies on the awareness on infectious diseases among the general population are currently lacking in Brunei. Conducting KAP surveys on specific diseases will help public health stakeholders to understand the level of awareness among the general public, thus helping to plan better strategies or educational campaigns for awareness and prevention. A KAP study on Zika virus is currently on-going.

Developing non-conventional surveillance systems for infectious diseases in Brunei

Traditional infectious disease surveillance systems involve rigorous sample collection in selected sites and diagnostic testing, which involve a significant amount of resources (both human and monetary). To help address this issue, other countries have started using other forms of surveillance systems which uses existing datasets. Students who are interested in this topic would have the opportunity to work with people outside the health sector (such as in education, meteorological and IT sectors).

Assessing burden and risk factors of infectious disease among specific population

Studies on the burden of infectious diseases are lacking in Brunei. This is a pressing issue, especially for mosquito-borne diseases. To address this, field studies can be implemented to calculate the incidence rate of a disease and determine any risk factors of getting the disease. Understand both burden and risk factors would help to highlight any impact of an infectious disease that could be under-recognised.
