GOTTERO, Laura. Dengue in Argentina's Public Agenda: Institutional Narratives about Occurrences in North West Frontier (2009-2013). Punto Cero [online]. 2015, vol.20, n.31, pp. 21-34. ISSN 1815-0276.

This workdeals with the characterization of the northern borderof Argentina in official documents framed in the campaign against dengue, established as an objective starting in 2009 with the National Plan for Prevention and Control of Dengue and Yellow Fever. So, this article studies in depth the discursive features of communication brochures published and disseminated by the Ministry Argentine Health in the period 2012-2014, for the information on symptoms and ways of preventing the spread of dengue. Here you can observe how the image of the border is constituted as a milestone, from which the diagnoses are defined, the stories about outbreaks and description of the most appropriate solutions at the expense of more structural or deep explanations on the prevalence of dengue in the country and the socioeconomic situation of the most affected areas.

Palavras-chave : Dengue; Argentina; borders; immigration; communication policy; government.
