Dengue occurs in many tropical countries, despite substantial
effort to control the Aedes
mosquitoes that transmit the virus. The majority of the burden
occurs in the South-East Asian
Region of the World Health Organization. Bangladesh is a
lower-middle income country
located in South Asia, with strong seasonal weather variation,
heavy monsoon rainfall, and
high population density. Dengue has been endemic in Bangladesh
since an epidemic in 2000.
