Patient testimonial: Camila & the impact of dengue in Colombia, courtesy of Takeda Vaccines


Camila Lopez Davalos is a young girl from Cali, Colombia who loves painting. Dengue fever is endemic in Colombia, with regular outbreaks infecting at least 100,000 at a time.

Camila was struck with severe dengue on a family trip. This video by Takeda Vaccines highlights her family’s experience with dengue: how scared they were of the illness as well as the current state of the disease in Colombia.

Video developed by Takeda Vaccines (2018) to demonstrate the impact and prevalence of dengue globally, as well as elevate the voice of dengue survivors.
