While clear and concise dengue prevention and control guidelines are necessary, it is also crucial that implementers are trained on how these affect their roles and responsibilities. This study compares two approaches used to train health workers in Myanmar: basic didactic versus comprehensive participatory training. It found major limitations to the use of participatory training, which did not result in better knowledge, skills or dengue outbreak preparedness in comparison to the more traditional didactic training.
