|Title:||The benefits and challenges of scaling up dengue surveillance in Saudi Arabia from a GIS perspective||Contributor(s):||Khormi, Hassan (author); Elzahrany, Ramze (author); Kumar, Lalit (author)||Publication Date:||2012||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/12080||Abstract:||The most common mosquito-borne virus in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, is the dengue virus and is predominantly transmitted by 'Aedes aegypti' mosquitoes. This study was aimed to assess the status of dengue surveillance in Jeddah, develop recommendations to improve surveillance data quality, investigate prospective uses of Geographic Information Systems (GIS) to monitor dengue incidence, vector prevalence and patterns, and introducing ways for improving the current dengue surveillance system in Jeddah. Continuance of the current system is recommended, but its effectiveness can be improved by increasing its accuracy and collection and use of data.||Publication Type:||Journal Article||Source of Publication:||Dengue Bulletin, v.36, p. 26-36||Publisher:||World Health Organization||Place of Publication:||India||ISSN:||0250-8362||Field of Research (FOR):||050206 Environmental Monitoring||Socio-Economic Objective (SEO):||960405 Control of Pests, Diseases and Exotic Species at Regional or Larger Scales||HERDC Category Description:||C2 Non-Refereed Article in a Scholarly Journal||Statistics to Oct 2018:||Visitors: 290|
