CASTRO-OROZCO, Raimundo; ALVIS-GUZMAN, Nelson  and  GOMEZ-ARIAS, Rubén. Differences and similarities in approach of integrated strategy for dengue prevention and control between Colombia and Peru. Rev. perú. med. exp. salud publica [online]. 2015, vol.32, n.4, pp.801-807. ISSN 1726-4634.

We analyzed and compared two Integrated Management Strategies for Dengue Prevention and Control (IMS-dengue Colombia and IMS-dengue Peru), through a narrative review of available literature, in order to identify common and dissimilar patterns in two Andean countries with epidemiological differences in the context of dengue disease. We were able to identify differences related to: formal assessment of problem, formation of groups of actors, and quantitative information provided by performance indicators. These limitations identified in IMS-dengue Colombia 2006-2010 were overcome in a new version of the strategy (IMS-dengue Colombia 2012-2021). We were able to document an epidemiological impact of implementation of IMS-dengue Colombia 2006-2010. Additionally, a gradual increase was observed in incidence rates of dengue cases that could be related to the strengthening of surveillance system of IMS- dengue Peru
