Bottom Line: Of 253 relevant data sources identified, 34, including additional epidemiology data provided by the National Epidemiology Center, Department of Health, Philippines, were reviewed.There were 14 publications in peer reviewed journals, and 17 surveillance reports/sources, which provided variable information from the passive reporting system and show broad trends in dengue incidence, including age group predominance and disease severity.The peer reviewed studies focused on clinical severity of cases, some revealed data on circulating serotypes and genotypes and on the seroepidemiology of dengue including incidence rates for infection and apparent disease.

ABSTRACT
This literature analysis describes the available dengue epidemiology data in the Philippines between 2000 and 2011. Of 253 relevant data sources identified, 34, including additional epidemiology data provided by the National Epidemiology Center, Department of Health, Philippines, were reviewed. There were 14 publications in peer reviewed journals, and 17 surveillance reports/sources, which provided variable information from the passive reporting system and show broad trends in dengue incidence, including age group predominance and disease severity. The peer reviewed studies focused on clinical severity of cases, some revealed data on circulating serotypes and genotypes and on the seroepidemiology of dengue including incidence rates for infection and apparent disease. Gaps in the data were identified, and include the absence incidence rates stratified by age, dengue serotype and genotype distribution, disease severity data, sex distribution data, and seroprevalence data.

Map of the Philippines showing the administrative 17 regions [19], [20].The Republic of the Philippines is an archipelago in Southeast Asia consisting of 7107 islands. The country is divided into 17 regions within the three island groups of Luzon (Regions I–V, Cordillera Administrative Region [CAR] and National Capital Region [NCR]), Visayas (Regions VI–VIII) and Mindanao (Regions IX–XIII and Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao). Metro Manila is the metropolitan area that contains the City of Manila, the capital of the Philippines. The metropolis is officially called the National Capital Region (NCR, the term used throughout this report) and is composed of Manila plus 16 neighboring cities and municipalities, including Quezon City.

Mentions: The Republic of the Philippines comprises 7107 islands in Southeast Asia; the three island groups of Luzon (Regions I–V, Cordillera Administrative Region [CAR], and National Capital Region [NCR]), Visayas (Regions VI–VIII), and Mindanao (Regions IX–XIII and Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao) are split into 17 regions (Figure 1). The population is 92,337,852 (2010 census), with an average annual population growth rate of 1.90% for the period 2000–2010 [19]. A large proportion of the population (37.3%) lives in three regions: Calabarzon (Region IV-A; 11.74 million people), the capital, Metro (metropolitan) Manila, also known as NCR (11.55 million people), and Central Luzon (Region III; 9.72 million people) [20]. The Philippines has a tropical marine climate, with an average annual temperature of 27°C, annual dry seasons from December to May, and annual wet seasons from June to December [21].

This literature analysis describes the available dengue epidemiology data in the Philippines between 2000 and 2011.

There were 14 publications in peer reviewed journals, and 17 surveillance reports/sources, which provided variable information from the passive reporting system and show broad trends in dengue incidence, including age group predominance and disease severity. The peer reviewed studies focused on clinical severity of cases, some revealed data on circulating serotypes and genotypes and on the seroepidemiology of dengue including incidence rates for infection and apparent disease. Gaps in the data were identified, and include the absence incidence rates stratified by age, dengue serotype and genotype distribution, disease severity data, sex distribution data, and seroprevalence data.
