The Guardian Examines Brazil’s Public, Private Efforts To Curb Dengue Epidemic
The Guardian: Brazil considers vaccines and GM mosquitoes to tackle dengue fever
“…Since January, Brazil’s health ministry has spent R$150m (US$50m) fighting dengue. Most of the money has gone to health authorities in towns like Estrela d’Oeste, to fund preventative measures, such as house visits and education programs. … But given the difficulty of halting the spread of dengue, public and private organizations based in Brazil are working on other solutions…” (Douglas/Moreth, 6/3).
