PAHO urges strengthening dengue prevention in the Caribbean

The Pan American Health Organisation has urged countries in Central America, Mexico, and the Caribbean to strengthen preventive measures against dengue.
 
In an epidemiological alert issued over the weekend, PAHO pointed out the importance of strengthening surveillance, diagnosis, and vector control actions, as well as preparing health services for the proper management of patients.  
 
As of mid-May 2024, PAHO said the Americas region, including the Caribbean, has reported more than 8.1 million suspected cases of dengue, marking a 3.3f old increase compared with the same period last year.
