Dengue control

Monitoring and evaluation of programmes

Monitoring refers to a continuous tracking of a programme’s process or performance. The aim is to estimate the spread and burden of the disease over different periods of time. A sound and thorough monitoring and evaluation strategy allows decision makers to asses the effectiveness of various strategies on dengue transmission.

Methods of surveillance include:

Disease surveillance

Tracking the number of infected human cases.

Vector surveillance

Tracking mosquito populations in areas of potential risk.

Monitoring behavioural impact

Observing whether behaviours aimed to reduce dengue transmission are adopted and sustained by the community.
