In this sense, the present analysis is a mini integrative review, which aims to evaluate the effectiveness of the various forms of prevention against dengue in the Brazilian territory. For the selection of scientific articles, was used PUBMED and Scientific Electronic Library Online (SciELO) as a database, taking a final sample consisting of 5 articles. In this way, several results were obtained that portray the methods of formulating posters and booklets, garbage collection, government management, action by the ACEs and CHAs, and social mobilization as effective forms of prevention, but which need to be reformulated. For the most part, that were consonants in their effective against dengue. Therefore, it is evident that the forms of prevention depend on several factors, culminating in a low practical effectiveness in combating cases of dengue.
