ABSTRACT

Until recently, Northern Himalayan states like Himachal Pradesh of India were free from the hold of dengue. But a new threat looms with introduction of dengue to comparatively cooler areas of the country. It has been postulated in view of climate change phenomenon that dengue will also become a major public-health threat in Himachal Pradesh in the years to come.  Therefore, Assessment of impact of climate change on dengue should be undertaken which will help in quantification of additional burden of the disease and population to be affected at district level. It will also help in early preparedness for coping with the projected effect of climate change on dengue in the vulnerable hot spots. J Microbiol Infect Dis 2021; 11(1):42-43.
