Dengue/Dengue Haemorrhagic Fever is an acute viral infectious disease caused by dengue viruses. The viruses are transmitted to human body by the Aedes mosquito especially Aedes aegypti. Dengue fever is a major public health issue in countries in the South East Asia region. Researches for a vaccine to prevent this disease are being developed. In the absent of a vaccine, therefore, the only way to minimise the impact of a Dengue viruses outbreak is by avoiding mosquitoes. The WHO issued Guidelines to prevent and control the disease. The aim of this study is to evaluate the effectiveness of the WHO South-East Asia Regional Guidelines on Dengue/Dengue Fever Haemorrhagic Prevention and Control, 1999. The study will evaluate the effectiveness of environmental management methods, biological control methods, chemical control methods and how well the Guidelines are being communicated. The dissertation is a development evaluation which focuses on a literature review. Twenty eight publications related to dengue prevention and twelve sources related to the policies of five countries in the South-East Asia region were researched. The study reveals that, in general, dengue prevention methods have been not effective and were not well communicated. The evaluation also suggests that dengue prevention programmes in some countries of the South East Asia region are insufficiently utilizing scientific evidence. Some dengue prevention programmes lack intersectoral coordination, the evaluation of programmes seems to be patchy, some lack proper assessment, some provide incomplete information about chemical methods and health staff and volunteers have only limited knowledge to deliver information to the public in the fight against dengue fever.
