GUIDELINES FOR DENGUE SURVEILLANCE AND MOSQUITO CONTROL

These guidelines provide practical information for preventing and controlling outbreaks of dengue haemorrhagic fever. Timely action by health personnel and members of the community can prevent serious illness and death, especially among infants and children. A comprehensive control approach emphasizes the prevention and elimination of mosquitos breeding in water storage containers, community participation, personal protection, legislation and space spraying to kill infected mosquitos during epidemics. The detailed descriptions of various control measures should be a valuable source of information for medical officers of health in cities and provinces, vector control personnel, schoolteachers, community nurses, health inspectors and related staff involved in dengue surveillance and mosquito control. Annex topics include laboratory and clinical diagnosis of dengue haemorrhagic fever, procedures for treating mosquito nets and curtains, space spraying techniques and larval collection with enforced legislation. Also included are illustrations on community action in vector control.
