Issue: 
Pages: 
115–21
Synopsis: 
A survey was conducted in Trinidad and Tobago and in St Kitts and Nevis to determine the levels of understanding of the issues of climate variability/change affecting dengue fever (DF) and its transmission. Climate variability issues such as seasonal variation affecting DF and its vector production are well apprciated, but use of this information in an early warning programme to prevent DF transmission are not yet in use by the communities.

ABSTRACT

Objective: To determine the level of understanding of the issues of climate change (CC)/variability (CV) and public health by populations of St Kitts and Nevis (SKN) and Trinidad and Tobago (T&T) and to find whether respondents would be willing to incorporate these values into strategies for dengue fever (DF) prevention.
