Camino Verde: Dengue prevention in Mexico and Nicaragua
Camino Verde (the Green Way): Cluster randomized controlled trial of dengue prevention in Mexico and Nicaragua
Traditional policies and programs, based on the use of larvicides and pesticides, have not managed to control the spread of the dengue virus and its vector, the Aedes mosquito.
In 2011-2012, the Centro de Investigación de Enfermedades Tropicales (CIET) and the University of California, Berkeley, along with local partners in both countries, conducted a study in Nicaragua and Mexico with the aim of assessing the efficiency of community mobilization for sustainable control of the Aedes mosquito. We call this initiative a Camino Verde —a Green Way— to dengue prevention.
