Dengue in the Americas


Dengue in the Americas



Dengue Bulletin 26: 44-61



Dengue has been present in the Americas for centuries, but the current situation is dynamic, and is worsening. The main vector, Aedes aegypti, infests most countries. Vector control efforts have been largely inadequate. Population growth, especially in urban, low latitude areas, has resulted in a greater risk for contact with a competent vector. An increasing number of cities have reached a size that can support ongoing circulation of dengue viruses.
