|Abstract:||Description: Dengue is one of the most rapidly spreading vector-borne communicable diseases in the WHO South-East Asia Region. Transmitted by the Aedes mosquito, dengue can be fatal, and it does not have a vaccine or cure, so the emphasis is on prevention. This booklet answers some common questions, and is for the general public as well as health care providers. More information on dengue and other vector-borne disease is available from the Communicable Diseases Department web site: http://www.searo.who.int/entity/world_health_day_2014|
