DENGUE is the most rapidly spreading vector-borne disease. An estimated 50 million dengue infections occur annually and approximately 2.5 billion people live in dengue endemic countries (WHO 2008). World Health Organization is concerned with the emergence and re-emergence of dengue as a serious public health threat in dengue endemic countries and gave emphasis that the global climate change has resulted in an increase in outbreaks which has far-reaching cross-border and international implications. The geographical spread, incidence and severity of Dengue Fever (DF) and Dengue Hemorrhagic Fever (DHF) are increasing in South East Asia, Western Pacific and Latin American countries.
