One of the objectives of PAHO/WHO is to strengthen diagnostic laboratory networks in the Region and promote exchange and technological transfer among them. For each institution, by country, the list below includes a general information sheet describing the objectives, mission and vision, publications, and research projects of each PAHO/WHO Collaborating Center and National Reference Laboratory involved in diagnosing dengue in the Americas. At the end of each sheet is a link to a questionnaire on the laboratories' capacity, the techniques they use, and the networks in which they participate.

The Macro and Micro World of the Mosquito Aedes aegypti: You need to know it before you can fight it!
This non-narrative video from Brazil is uniquely composed of images on the lifecyle of A. aegypti, the vector transmitting dengue and yellow fever. As such it is not dependent on language, only on visual filming of how mosquitoes breed, are born and live in area occupied by humans--information that rarely reaches communities. Each minute of this film correspondes to two days in the life of the mosquito.
