In light of the beginning of the peak dengue circulation season in the southern hemisphere, the persistence of viral activity in the Central American Isthmus subregion and Mexico, and the identification of serotypes, mainly DENV-3, that had not circulated for several years in some areas, the Pan American Health Organization / World Health Organization (PAHO/WHO) encourages Member States to continue efforts to maintain surveillance, early diagnosis, and timely treatment of dengue cases and other arboviruses. This is aimed at preventing complications and deaths associated with these diseases. At the same time, it calls for the intensification of preparedness actions within healthcare services to facilitate access and proper management of patients.
