What Is Dengue Fever?

Dengue fever is a mosquito-borne virus affecting more than 390 million people each year. While the disease is generally mild, it can be deadly.

Recent research shows dengue is between 100 and 800 years old. It likely originated in Africa or Southeast Asia and was then carried to other parts of the world through travel and trade.

In recent years, dengue has spread to over 100 countries. Now, travelers to popular destinations like Brazil and India could contract the disease.

The virus is also known as ‘breakbone fever’ due to its symptoms.

About Our Services

A bit about us

Just like you and so many others in general practice we found ourselves struggling to provide good care patients who travel. It never seemed to have enough time to provide quality care and stay on schedule. If you’ve ever felt like you’ve tried it all and nothing works, you are not alone.

“I will let my mum know about this, she could really make use of the medical service here! We’re loving it. We were treated like royalty.”
