Summary of evaluation of dengue strategic plan for the Asia Pacific region 2008-2015

In 2008, the fifty-ninth session of the Regional Committee for the Western Pacific endorsed the Dengue Strategic Plan for the Asia Pacific Region 2008–2015. This served as a road map for dengue prevention and control in the Region. The strategic plan aimed to reduce the disease burden to an extent that dengue would no longer be a major public health problem. The strategic plan contained a logical framework approach (LFA) with one regional objective and six components encompassing six specific objectives. The six components comprising the LFA were surveillance, integrated vector management, case management, social mobilization and communications, outbreak response and research. The strategic plan was implemented through integrated vector management and the implementation of the Asia Pacific Strategy for Emerging Diseases (APSED), including partnerships with institutions and organizations, the network of WHO collaborating centres and the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN).
