Chikungunya is a virus transmitted by Aedes aegypti and Aedes albopictus mosquitoes (the same mosquito species that transmit dengue). The virus's name comes from the Makonde language of Tanzania and means "that which bends up."

PAHO/WHO thanks those who authorized the use of their stories and photos in this educational photo essay. We also thank the health authorities and health workers of the Dominican Republic for their collaboration.
