Abstract: Despite increased vector control efforts, dengue fever remains endemic in Fortaleza, Northeast Brazil, where sporadic epidemic outbreaks have occurred since 1986. Multiple factors affect vector ecology such as social policy, migration, urbanization, city water supply, garbage disposal and housing conditions, as well as community level understanding of the disease and related practices. This descriptive study used a multi-disciplinary approach that bridged anthropology and entomology. A multiple case study desi… Show more

“…This variable may not be the best indicator of water disruption and resultant water storage behaviors which are important factors for the creation of vector breeding sites (Caprara et al, 2009) One limitation of this study was that the clusters obtained in the spatio-temporal analysis were based on the residence of cases and other criteria for geocoding could lead to a different distribution. This is a common issue in most geographic studies of dengue, and still provides useful information given that people are often at home during the peak biting periods of the Ae.…”

“…Socioeconomic characteristics of households related to uncontrolled urbanization, migration, deficiencies in water supply and garbage disposal, and vector control activities can play a significant role in the spatio-temporal distribution of dengue virus transmission (Caprara et al, 2009;Gómez-Dantés et al, 2011;Gómez-Dantés and Ramsey, 2009;Martín et al, 2010).…”

“…For this reason, there are more possible breeding areas (e.g. water tanks, cisterns) and chances of "Aedesaegypti" survival in under-privileged homes [39]. The context of inadequate shelter, insufficient and unsafe water, and poor sanitation pose significant risk factors associated with outbreaks of disease [40].…”

“…Caprara et al (2009) have mentioned that would be possible to infer that constructions with high level of indoor humidity can facilitate the presence of "Aedes" adult forms, even if the relative humidity indoors or outdoors has not been measured. Identically, the presence of trees may protect these breeding areas from sunlight, as well as water bowls for domesticated animals can improve the conditions for the multiplication of larvae and increase the number of potential breeding spots.…”
