Data was collected between 13th to 31st January 2023. Data analysis was performed by descriptive and inferential statistics at a significant level of 0.05. The results showed that the overall administrative factors and the performance of dengue hemorrhagic fever prevention and control were at a high level with averages of 2.46 (S.D. = 0.37) and 2.55 (S.D. = 0.25) respectively.
