Portugal Health by Numbers Nº 2 - Thematic number: Dengue in Madeira

When we published the first number of this journal - Health by Numbers Portugal – we thought about making a special issue (a thematic issue). The occurrence of Dengue outbreak in Madeira was then very recent, proposing itself naturally as an attractive and current theme. Despite the time lag that has elapsed, it is particularly gratifying that we now have a record of what happened, what was exemplary done, and we can point out what could possibly have been done additionally.

This is an account of some health professionals who have been directly involved in the outbreak; representing the very many who were in fact “on the field” in the Autonomous Region of Madeira or backing them.
