    > KATHMANDU, Nepal – When mosquito season brought past dengue outbreaks to regions across the Asian tropics, Nepal hardly had to worry.

    > The country had its first-ever dengue outbreak in 2006, but only a handful of people were affected that year from lowland districts along the southern border with India.
