VILCARROMERO, Stalin et al. Lessons learned in the control of Aedes aegypti to address dengue and the emergency of chikungunya in Iquitos, Peru. Rev. perú. med. exp. salud publica [online]. 2015, vol.32, n.1, pp.172-178. ISSN 1726-4634.

Dengue has affected Iquitos since 1990 causing outbreaks of major impact on public health and for this reason great efforts have been made for its temporal control. Currently, with the expansion of the chikungunya virus in the Americas and the threat of the emergence of the virus in Iquitos, we reflect on lessons learned by way of the activities undertaken in the area of vector control; epidemiological surveillance, diagnosis and clinical management during periods of outbreaks of dengue, in a way that will allow us to better face the threat of an outbreak of chikungunya virus in the largest city in the Peruvian Amazon.

Keywords : Dengue; Dengue/prevention & control; Chikungunya virus; Virus release.
