The prevailing local situation of Dengue in Bangladesh has been announced by WHO as ‘alarming’.

A systematic course of action that ensures early detection of the cases, treatment, and referral when necessary will reduce Dengue mortality and the key component of this process is the delivery of optimal clinical services at all levels of healthcare by skilled healthcare personnel to prevent regrettable mortality and to create awareness for appropriate prevention and control.
