Mapping the prevalence of dengue fever in sragen regency Indonesia


Introduction: Dengue fever is a disease that is transmitted by vectors. The intermediary vector for dengue fever transmission is the Aedes Aegepty mosquito. Dengue fever cases occur in almost all districts in Indonesia, including the Sragen regency. From 2016 to 2019, the incidence of dengue fever was higher than the previous year. This unusual condition needs to be further monitored and studied. This study's purpose was to map the prevalence of dengue fever in the Sragen regency.

Methods: A retrospective research design was performed using secondary data provided by the regency health office and the Central Bureau of statistics from the government of Sragen regency. A free and open-source software, namely Quantum Geographic Information System (QGIS), was utilized to produce maps and spatial figures. The results of this study are presented by map and prevalence.

Results: The incidence of dengue fever in the Sragen regency in 2017-2019 fluctuated between 15.83 per 100,000 population and 33.54 per 100,000 population. The dengue fever case in Gemolong district is the highest in 2018 and 2019.

Conclusion: The conclusion for this research is mapping the dengue fever prevalence helping to figure up the spatial pattern of the disease in Sragen regency.
