Summary
The main objective of these guidelines is to provide practical information on the steps for preventing and controlling outbreaks of dengue haemorrhagic fever. The main emphasis is on vector surveillance and control, and priority is given to simple environmental measures which individuals and communities can take to eliminate larval breeding. The strategy used to control adult Aedes mosquitos before and during outbreaks is given within the framework of a comprehensive control approach which includes personal protection measures, space spraying, legislation, and the early recognition and treatment of dengue haemorrhagic fever cases.
These guidelines should be a valuable source of information for those engaged in controlling dengue haemorrhagic fever.
