We are pleased to announce that the date of the 7th Congress of the Pan American Dengue Research Network will be on April 19, 20, 21, 22 and 23, 2020 in Lima, Peru.
Dengue viruses (DENV) are the most important human arboviral pathogens. They are the cause of dengue fever, an arthropod-borne viral infection which affects people all over the world. In many Latin America countries all four DENV serotypes are actively circulating. In tropical and subtropical regions in the Americas, dengue is considered among the most serious health problems; moreover, demographic changes, rapid urbanization, and global travel have contributed to the spread of the virus to new geographic regions.
Our goals for this year’s meeting include:
- Provide an update on the status of dengue and relevant flaviviruses currently impacting public health in the Americas (Zika, chikungunya and others)
- Present the most recent research from the Americas on virology, immunology, pathogenesis, control and prevention, economic impact, treatment and vaccines, clinical studies of dengue and other relevant flaviviruses and their co-morbidities
- Provide information on funding opportunities to study dengue and other relevant flaviviruses in developing countries
