Abstract

Background and Objective: Amongst all the states and union territories in India, New Delhi shares the highest burden of the disease. Dengue infection is influenced by several socioeconomic factors, which involve roles, and responsibilities of various stakeholders of the society. In this study, we attempt to explore the awareness, knowledge and perception about dengue amongst relevant stakeholders. Methodology: A sample of 30 stakeholders having different roles in management of dengue was taken all over from Delhi. In-depth, face-to-face, qualitative interviews were taken using an interview tool customized as per roles and responsibilities of the stakeholders. Result: The study identified four key themes in management of dengue in Delhi. These themes were studied in depth and various challenges in dengue management were explored.
