The WHO has listed dengue fever among the top 10 health threats facing the planet in 2019.

Interestingly, another of the top 10 is vaccine hesitancy. This encompasses people who are 'anti-vaccine' as well as those who are complacency about the risk or for whom access to vaccination is inconvenient.

For dengue, this is particularly relevant: vaccination could become part of a multi-pronged solution to dengue but the challenge of vaccine hesitancy is a major barrier to incorporating new preventative tools.
