Kathy Maru Tabulao Abrajano Alwin Sidney Estil Velasquez Sofia Marie Dael Ranoco Fatima Manadong Odon James Ernie Lumagbas Dengue is a major public-health concern throughout tropical and sub-tropical regions of the world. It is the most rapidly spreading mosquito-borne viral disease, with a 30-fold increase in global incidence over the past 50 years. The World Health Organization (WHO) estimates that 50–100 million dengue infections occur each year and that almost half the world’s population lives in countries where dengue is endemic. While dengue is a global concern, with a steady increase in the number of countries reporting the disease, currently close to 75% of the global population exposed to dengue are in the Asia-Pacific region. Epidemics of dengue result in human suffering, strained health services and massive economic losses. In some countries, the burden of dengue is comparable to that of tuberculosis and other communicable diseases with high disease burdens; unexpected surges in cases and the challenge to health systems of triaging thousands of cases without knowing which severe cases will require hospital care are additional challenges. There has not, however, been concerted action against dengue, and the 1995 WHO strategy1 warrants revision in the light of new advances.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
