    Abstract : Background: Dengue is a viral infectious disease that is transmitted by mosquitoes. The disease causes a significant health burden in tropical countries, and has been a public health burden in Singapore for several decades. Severe complications such as hemorrhage can develop and lead to fatal outcomes. READ MORE

    Abstract : Background Climate change, global travel and trade have facilitated the spread of Aedes mosquitoes and have consequently enabled the diseases they transmit (dengue fever, Chikungunya, Zika and yellow fever) to emerge and re-emerge in uninfected areas. Large dengue outbreaks occurred in Athens in 1927 and in Portuguese island, Madeira in 2012, but there are almost no recent reports of Aedes aegypti, the principal vector, in Europe. READ MORE

  5. 5. The Influence of Climate and Public Health Interventions on Aedes Vectors and Dengue in Sri Lanka

    Author : Prasad Liyanage; Joacim Rocklöv; Yesim Tozan; Hasitha Tissera; Flemming Konradsen; Umeå universitet; []

    Abstract : Introduction: Dengue, a viral infection transmitted by Aedes mosquitos, flourishes in urban tropical environments by a complex process. Interactions among susceptible humans, dengue viruses, and Aedes mosquitoes determine dengue transmission patterns, and these interactions are modified by driving factors related to weather, the environment, and human behaviour, including mobility.
