Dengue Fever and Aedes aegypti in indigenous Brazilians: seroprevalence, risk factors, knowledge and practices

Abstract: We present the first seroepidemiological survey of dengue conducted among indigenous populations in Brazil. This lack of studies is likely due to the great bureaucratic challenge of working with indigenous populations, which may lead to greater negligence in the health of these populations.

“…The seroprevalence was high in both Colombian children and adults, indicating that DENV infections affect all age groups equally, as reported in other parts of the world (Martins-Melo et al, 2018;Sacramento et al, 2018), and in Medellín, Colombia, where 34% of the subjects under 15 years old and 82.8% over 51 years old were positive for indirect IgG (Carabali et al, 2017). This can be explained by the periods of prolonged residences and, therefore, a greater probability of exposure to the vector.…”

“…No Aedes aegypti and Aedes albopictus specimens were identified in the entomological collections in this study. This is in contrast with the study of Sacramento et al 43 , in which they performed seroprevalence tests for arboviruses and entomological surveillance in a village in the state of Ceará and identified the presence of mosquitoes in all the houses of the village under study. This fact reinforces the hypothesis that the infections recorded in our study occurred outside the riverine communities, more specifically in urban areas, or that another vector assumed the role of vectorization for these diseases.…”
