National Guidelines on Prevention, Management and Control of Dengue in Nepal
PDF File Size: 1.47 MB | Download   
Dengue is a mosquito-borne viral disease that has rapidly spread in many countries worldwide in recent years. In Nepal, dengue is a rapidly emerging disease. Endemic across most provinces, dengue incidence has increased in recent years largely due to expansion of the vector Aedes aegypti and Aedes albopictus, as well as the movement of people and the introduction of imported cases. All 4 dengue serotypes exist in Nepal, with DENV-1 historically contributing the highest burden. Prevention, clinical case management, surveillance, vector control and management and outbreak response are ongoing in Nepal, however there is a need to strengthen these especially at a time of national decentralization towards a federalized system. National dengue guidelines was first developed in Nepal in 2008 based on the World Health Organization (WHO) guidelines 1997 which was revised in 2011. This revised national guidelines on dengue prevention, management and control, 2019 aims to provide a technical ‘gold-standard’ advice on all aspects of dengue using the latest internationally adopted definitions, protocols and guidelines. It also provides simple, and easy to reference content, which can be printed and displayed on the walls of doctor’s rooms, wards or simply held in the hands of health workers who are spreading awareness on dengue within their local communities.
This guideline aims to provide current and robust guidelines for each of the core areas of seasonal and epidemic dengue prevention, management and control in Nepal.
