Abstract

Dengue Hemorrhagic Fever (DHF) is transmitted through the bite of Aedes aegypti and Aede. albopictus. Until the end of 2013 DHF has spread in 438 regions (88%) of 497 districts/municipalities in Indonesia. Although the mortality rate is reported to decrease with Case Fatality Rate by 0.7% in 2013, the incidence rate is still quite high (41.25 per 100,000 population). The research was conducted in the provinces of South Sumatra, Central Java, Central Sulawesi and Papua. The purpose of this study was to find out the density of DHF vector mosquitoes by measuring the entomology indexes. The research design is cross sectional study with descriptive analysis. The entomology indexes were performed by larva surveys conducted in 100 homes and examined them according to WHO standards. Data on secondary DHF cases were collected from district health offices and provincial health offices. The results showed that the density of dengue vectors in 2015 were still very high and the larvae free rates (ABJ) in all four provinces were less than 95%. These conditions would potentially lead to increase dengue cases. Increasing community participation in DHF vector control would be needed to overcome the problems.
