MetadataShow full item record
[Introduction]. The Integrated Management Strategy for Dengue Prevention and Control in the Region of the Americas (IMS-Dengue) updates the methodological working model that the countries of the Region have been deploying and strengthening over the last 10 years. Its integrated and multidisciplinary nature has proven very useful in management at the country level, to prevent and organize national responses to outbreaks, epidemics, and inter-epidemic periods. IMS-Dengue 2017 is also the result of the experience acquired and the lessons learned since IMS-Dengue was first deployed in 2003, and draws on the best practices developed by the countries. Its purpose is to contribute to a reduction of the social and economic burden caused by dengue in the Americas. The foundations of this material are the various technical documents, strategies, action plans, and resolutions adopted by the countries of the Region, both globally and regionally/subregionally...IMS-Dengue 2017 proposes a new functional integration model. A systematic review of the different IMS-Dengue components, undertaken during the last five years, led to the incorporation of updates whose practical application has been positive. IMS-Dengue 2017 provides for integrated action on six technical components, two cross-cutting themes, and five facilitating factors as inputs for the prevention and control of dengue in the Americas.
