Dengue Fever and Dengue Haemorrhagic Fever (a more severe form) are the most common mosquito-borne viral diseases in the world. Dengue Fever is an illness caused by infection with a virus transmitted by the Aedes mosquito. There are four types of this virus (serotypes 1 to 4) which can infect you. Occasionally the patient suffering from dengue may develop bleeding. Common sites for bleeding are nose, gums or skin. Sometimes, the patient may have coffee ground vomiting or black stools. This indicates bleeding in gastro intestinal tracts and it is serious. The patient with dengue who has bleeding has dengue haemorrhagic fever (DHF ). Rarely the patient suffering from dengue may develop shock, then it is called dengue shock syndrome ( DSS).

Dengue Fever is spread though the bite of the Aedes Mosquito.


To prevent dengue fever, you must prevent the breeding of its carrier, the Aedes mosquitoes. Aedes mosquitoes are identified by the black and white stripes on their body. You can get rid of the Aedes mosquito by frequently checking and removing stagnant water in your home.


WOSM statistics

There are 161 countries with internationally recognised National Scout Organizations. (The newest member country is Belarus, as of 5 September 2010.) The countries are listed below with the membership figures of the last official census:

Membership: The membership which is shown in these countries represents only the members (youth and adults) of the World Organization of the Scout Movement (WOSM), which in most countries includes boys and girls. In some countries mostly in Europe - the national organization is larger than indicated here because it includes girls who are members of the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts.

Joined WOSM: The date is the most recent year that the National Scout Organization joined the World Organization of the Scout Movement. (Organizations in some countries were World Scouting members in earlier years than shown here, but Scouting was disbanded for a period of time.)

Scouting founded: This information is taken from published sources. Note that countries use different standards to define "founded". It may mean the year the first Scout group was formed, or when the national organzation was formed, or chartered, etc.
Scouting was founded on 1 August 1907, the opening of Robert Baden-Powell's experimental camp on Brownsea Island in England.

The World Organization of the Scout Movement recognizes at most one Scouting organization per country. Some countries have several organizations combined as a federation, with different component groups divided on the basis of religion (e.g., France and Denmark), ethnic identification (e.g., Israel), or language (e.g., Belgium). Canada is the only country to have two distinct recognized associations, which are divided by language.
