Abstract

The ongoing resurgence of Aedes aegypti in the Americas--abetted by poor mosquito control, urbanization, and increased air travel--has led to dengue hyperendemicity, more frequent dengue epidemics, and the emergence of dengue hemorrhagic fever (DHF). This article describes a program developed to cope with this situation that emphasizes disease prevention rather than general mosquito control measures.
