IFRC Brings Attention To Dengue In New Report

The International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) has published a special report on dengue, titled “Dengue: Turning up the volume on a silent disaster.” The report’s homepage states, “To end the silent suffering of individuals, families, children and communities who continue to bear the burden of this preventable disease, the facts about dengue and methods to contain and reduce it must be brought into the open. The IFRC is turning up the volume on this silent disaster and advocates for a shift in approach from responding to isolated outbreaks of dengue to investing in long-term, integrated programming including community initiatives leading to sustainable behavioral change…” (4/4).
