GEOGRAPHICAL DISTRIBUTION, EVALUATION OF RISK OF DENGUE AND ITS RELATIONSHIP WITH THE EL NIÑO SOUTHERN OSCILLATION IN AN ENDEMIC REGION OF PERU BETWEEN 2004 – 2015



Abstract


Objective: To determine the geographical distribution and risk stratification of Dengue infection in an endemic region of Peru, and its relationship with the presence of El Niño Southern Oscillation (ENSO).

Results: The geographical distribution of Dengue cases in the territory comprising the 11 districts is homogeneous. There were 1 498 confirmed cases of Dengue reported, the highest incidence was determined in Puerto Inca where it reached an incidence of 3210.14 / 100000 hab. Of the 11 districts, 2 were classified as a high risk of transmission, 3 as moderate risk, 3 as low risk and in 3 of them the risk of virus transmission could not be determined.



Key words: Dengue, epidemiological factors, El Niño Phenomenon
