Molecular Diagnosis for National Dengue Control Program (NDCP) in Cambodia

The Cambodian National Dengue Control Strategic Plan (NDCSP) for 2013-2020 was developed and implemented with partners, particularly the WHO. There were 5 elements: (1) improving timely and accurate diagnosis and effective clinical management of DENV cases at all levels of healthcare service delivery; (2) strengthening surveillance, risk assessment, and outbreak preparedness; (3) developing vector management approaches given the emergence of other arboviral infections like CHIKV; (4) increasing quality of research to support these strategies; and (5) evaluating emerging technologies. The strengthening of early diagnosis and laboratory capacity bulding are objectives of the 2021-2030 NDSP that require support from NIH Cambodia and PHD.
