Kenya:

According to press sources, since March 2013, 10 suspected cases of Dengue Fever have been reported in Mombasa.

Solomon Islands:

Since January 2013, international health authorities have reported approximately 2,000 cases of dengue fever primarily from Honiara.

Travellers should seek a consultation with a travel health provider 4-6 weeks before travel.  As there is no vaccine it is important to learn about daytime insect precautions for protection against Dengue Fever.
