TEIXEIRA, Maria da Glória; BARRETO, Maurício Lima  e  GUERRA, Zouraide. Epidemiology and preventive measures of Dengue. Inf. Epidemiol. Sus [online]. 1999, vol.8, n.4, pp.5-33. ISSN 0104-1673.

In the past years dengue has been present in epidemic or endemic form in a large number of urban centers worldwide. The epidemiologic and entomological situation found in those centers, the technical difficulties or the lack of political determination to change the situation as well as the gaps in the knowledge to predict on scientifical basis new epidemics of the severe form of dengue, are evidences of the potential to increase the occurence of dengue and, in special, the hemorragic dengue fever in the near future. The surveillance of the occurrence and spread of each of the four serotypes of the dengue virus, the problems related with its control and the potential risks to the population are fundamental to generate informations to increase the competence of professionals and managers of the health network of the Unified Health System (SUS) to discuss and take positions towards the strategies of intervention to tackle this problem. The aim of this article is present a commented review of the determinant factors of those infections and to discuss the available preventive measures calling attention to some useful reflections for debate.
