“…The early effects of DDT on bird life are well known, but the replacement chemicals were also not without their risks (204). For example, efforts to control dengue fever by controlling the vector, Aedes aegypti, with organophosphorus insecticide led to three poisonings and reduced cholinesterase levels in 53 out of 2,391 people sampled from the local population in southern Brazil (291).…”

“…We also observe the reemergence of diseases considered controlled or eliminated, such as dengue in the 1980s, cause for growing concern by the increased incidence of its serious manifestations and the mortality associated with it 136 , 154 , 181 , and trachoma, which was highlighted in the past as a major cause for blindness 72 and which, from the 1980s, is again reported 34 , 51 , 106 , 108 . The reemergence of cholera also caused surprise in the 1990s, after a century of its absence in the Americas 78 , 179 .…”

“…The RSP marked important moments of the path of dengue in Brazil, with articles describing a history of Aedes aegypti control programs in Brazil 154 , commenting on the introduction of Aedes albopictus in the Country and its potential impacts 71 , the first epidemics in medium cities of the Southeast region 136 , important studies on the vector behavior 111 , seroprevalence surveys in Brazilian capitals 168 as well as socioeconomic characteristics and their relation with the vector density and the occurrence of dengue 61 , 117 . Finally, in recent years, we have an article commenting on the obstacles and challenges to the development of a vaccine against dengue 1 .…”

“…Although knowledge of mosquitos and habitat reduction methods are beneficial, they must be incorporated into a health belief and behavioral change model to ensure success. The incorporation of behavioral change models to introduce educational information is pivotal to community acceptance and participation [56]. Current gaps in research insufficiently explain the best mode of delivery and most effective length of continuous education program.…”
