Webinar Outline:

Dengue is the fastest spreading mosquito-borne viral disease; a distinction the WHO recognized when naming it a Top 10 threat to global health. Dengue is mainly spread by Aedes aegypti mosquitoes and, to a lesser extent, Aedes albopictus mosquitoes. It is caused by one of the four dengue serotypes, each of which can cause dengue fever or severe dengue. Dengue is pandemic-prone, and outbreaks are generally observed in tropical and subtropical areas. However, recent outbreaks have affected the continental United States and Europe. An estimated 40% of the world is at risk now lives with this threat. There has been a significant increase in number of dengue cases over the years, despite improvements in case management and a reduction in the Case Fatality Rate. Increased surveillance, better case management, innovative vector control, and diagnostics may improve control efforts globally.
