Break Dengue made significant strides in 2016. We expanded our Dengue Expert Community to over 1250 experts across the world, launched Dengue Track, a dengue surveillance tool, and entered partnerships with numerous key organisations across the world that are equally committed to fighting Dengue. 2017 looks to be our busiest year yet, as we will strive to work towards the WHO 2020 objectives on Dengue by further increasing our expert community and alliance, and promoting further uptake of Dengue Track. Read about our recent work and future plans in the full project report, including our financial report.
