“…6,7,8 In some parts of the world (e.g. Americas), losses caused by dengue to the economies of these countries are similar to that caused by tuberculosis and malaria 9 In Thailand, Malaysia, and Cambodia, the economic losses attributed to dengue are as much as $89 million 10 , whereas, the loss is estimated to be $2.1 billion in the Caribbean and Latin America. 11 The incidence of DF has increased more than 30 fold over the last five decades, thus, the dengue virus (DENV) infection has globally become a major public health threat.…”

“…1,2 Worldwide, over 2.5 billion people are at risk for dengue infection; the number of cases is estimated between 50 and 100 million annually, resulting in up to 500,000 hospitalizations and~24,000 deaths, mostly in children. [3][4][5] To date, there is no vaccine available to prevent dengue infection; as a result, efforts to reduce the burden of infection are focused on vector control and surveillance activities, as well as educational interventions. 6 In Latin America, DF ranks as the fifth most important neglected tropical disease (NTD) according to the disabilityadjusted life year (DALY) metric.…”

“…[11][12][13] Several studies conducted in dengue-endemic countries of Asia and the Western Hemisphere have quantified the burden of dengue. [14][15][16][17][18][19] In addition, indirect costs (related to work absenteeism and impairment) surpass the direct medical cost during dengue. [20][21][22][23][24] In addition to morbidity, mortality, and costs, quality of life (QoL) measurements have been increasingly recognized as an important metric in the public heath context.…”
