An Update on dengue situation and case classification

This descriptive cross-sectional retrospective study is designed to update the global burden of dengue and to analyse if the new case management has been effective in reducing mortality and morbidity. The world is divided in two groups, each one using different case definitions for diagnosing dengue. SEAR uses the old 1997 WHO case definition while PAHO uses the new 2009 WHO case classification. A literature review will be carried out in order to update the pros and cons of each case definition and national data will be used to analyse the impact of both methods on the mortality. Statistical tests will be performed to quantify the results. Due to time limit, only the top five representative countries will be studied for each region
