[Methodology]. The current new edition of the IMS-Dengue (2017) is based on the IMS-Dengue developed in 2003, which already included epidemiology, integrated vector management, laboratory, patient care, and social communication components. In this edition, new components are incorporated (environment, vaccines, and management), and social communication for behavioral change is redefined as a cross-cutting theme, along with operational research. For the first time, this new edition includes implementation-facilitating factors (advocacy, resource mobilization, strategic partnerships, capacity-building, and monitoring and evaluation). The inclusion of these factors are based on recommendations from various monitoring and evaluation processes of IMS-Dengue at the country level, developed by the GT-Dengue International Task Force; the WHO Global Strategy for Dengue Prevention and Control, 2012-2020; and recommendations presented by academia, the private sector, PAHO/ WHO collaborating centers, countries and territories, and non-governmental organizations during a meeting on the latest technical advances in dengue prevention and control in the Region of the Americas (State of the art in the prevention and control of dengue in the Americas), held in May 2014 at the PAHO/WHO Headquarters in Washington, DC. Subsequently, the latest developments were discussed, reviewed, and analyzed with the countries during the IMS-Dengue Regional Meeting held in Santiago del Estero, Argentina, in October 2014. Once consensus on which new elements would be included in the document was established with the countries, the PAHO/WHO technical staff was tasked with consolidating the information and carrying out final revision and editing of the document.
