Dengue is the fastest growing mosquito-borne disease on earth – nearly half the world’s population are at risk from it.

Yet many people have never heard of dengue, and its burden is poorly understood. Isn’t it time that a disease of this magnitude gathered global recognition?

The power of sharing

At the ISNTD we have joined forces with Break Dengue to form ‘Global Dengue Voice’, a international  driving force for change. Our mission is to reduce the global burden of dengue through a concerted public health effort, and we are leading with our Open Letter to the United Nations General Assembly petitioning for a World Dengue Day.

You can read it here. Help the world drive change by sharing the letter with your Member of Parliament and WHO country representative.

You can also help by sharing how you’ve been directly or indirectly affected by dengue here

Help our global movement to fight Dengue

We truly believe that the establishment of World Dengue Day will create a platform for attention and action against dengue, helping to change the future impact of the disease and how it is spread.

 

Together we have the power to make this day of recognition a reality. It’s as simple signing the petition, sending the Open Letter and sharing your stories and more across your networks.
