Content and Dynamics: -------- Arboviral infections, such as dengue virus, Zika virus, chikungunya virus, are an increasing clinical concern worldwide. Dengue infections have increased dramatically over the last 50 years. There is no specific treatment for arboviral infections, and no safe, effective vaccine for dengue or Zika. Fever due to arboviral infection such as dengue and Zika is a relatively common occurrence in Honduras, compared to the United States. Physicians and epidemiologists in Honduras are gaining clinical expertise in diagnosis and management of arboviral infections.
