dc.description.abstract Aims: This paper aims to compare the effectiveness of current mosquito control programs in the control of dengue in a developed versus a developing country. Study Design: Systematic Review and Analysis. Place and Duration of Study: Department of Global Health, University of South Florida, Tampa, Florida, USA between August 2013 and July 2014. Methodology: Systematic literature search of published and grey literature was done using the following databases: MEDLINE, AGRICOLA, BMC, DOAJ, Web of Science, the Cochrane Library, WHOLIS and Google Scholar. Relevant data were then extracted and analyzed. Results: Developing countries usually start up vector control activities after an epidemic has started, resulting in a lower impact on the control and prevention of dengue. Some developing countries, despite having sustainable vector control programs, still have a high incidence of dengue. Some studies have shown that factors such as defective urban planning, low socioeconomic status and poor physical housing conditions in some endemic locations within the developing countries may account for the high incidence of dengue cases. ru_RU
