Risk Factors on Dengue Hemorraghic Fever (DHF) and Mapping of Aedes aegypti Resistance in Wonogiri Sub District of Wonogiri District in 2010

Summary

Background: Dengue hemorrhagic fever is a problem in tropical and sub tropical countries. In Wonogiri District, the IR of DHF in 2009 was 3.64/10,000 with CFR of 0.52%, distributing in 13 sub districts and 48 villages endemics area. Wonogiri sub district is a DHF endemic with IR in 2009 was 14.86/10,000 (CFR 1.43%). Factors influencing DHF incidence and case dispersionpattern, namely individual and ecological factors, such as demographic variables and the resistance of Aedes aegypti to insecticide used for controlling the DHF vectors were investigated in this study. Objective : To describe spatial distribution pattern of DHF cases and to find out risk factors that were related to DHF incidence in Wonogiri subdistrict in 2010, that included educational level and occupational status of level, maya index,and mosquito resistance to insecticide. Method: This was an observational study with matched case-control study design. Criteria case is patient DBD 2010, controls match by age and sex. (AV). Quantitative data a
