    Dengue fever is one of the fastest growing severe illnesses on the planet.  Figures from the World Health Organization indicate that the disease is 30 times more prevalent in 2010 than in 1960.  Theories explaining the spike in dengue cases are divergent – some believe the increase is attributable to global warming increasing preferred breeding environment for mosquitos, which spread the disease.  Others believe that drought has cause people to keep more standing water at or near their homes, also creating more fertile breeding ground for mosquitos.

    As of 2010, the US National Institute of Health set aside $45 million for dengue related research, a dramatic increase from the $5 million allocated in 2000.
