In 2019, we saw one of the worst years on record for dengue worldwide. Numbers were up in Asia, Africa and the Americas.

Joining me today from London to look at the past year in dengue, the progress with vaccines and 2020 and beyond is Kamran Rafiq. Kamran is the Co-Founder and Communications Director of the International Society for Neglected Tropical Diseases (ISNTD).

The ISNTD are spearheading a global campaign calling on the WHO and the UN to ratify an official World DENGUE Day.
