Dengue Hemorrhagic Fever (DHF) is still become one of the major public health problems in Indonesia. The number of sufferers and the extent of their spreading areas is increasing as much as increasing mobility and population density. According to data from the Health Office of Malang, there are 298 cases of dengue fever in 2015. Furthermore in 2016, dengue fever (DHF) in Malang increased fivefold in the last two months or even death. Therefore, dengue fever death rate (DHF) can be used as a indicator of community welfare, especially indicator of infectious diseases (Communicable Desease). The three-year cycle of Dengue Hemorrhagic Fever (DBD) in Malang City needs to be aware for society in Malang City.
