Two Cohort VI residents of the Tanzania Field Epidemiology and Laboratory Training Program: Neema Camara and Onesmo Kateule participated in a dengue entomological survey which in May 2014
in Dar es Salaam. The survey was in response to the ongoing dengue outbreak in Dar es Salaam that was first reported in January 2014. The survey involved capturing adult mosquitoes from breeding and feeding sites, larval collection and taking GIS- coordinates of the breeding/feeding sites. A total of 100 houses per ward were surveyed. To further research into the dengue fever, three residents used data from the activities to write their dissertations on the subjects: environmental factors, dried blood spot validation and Acute Febrile Illness (AFI) in Zanzibar.
