Resumo: In Marília, Brazil, community newsletters were established in a pilot project on community-based Aedes aegypti control. The newsletters were an excellent way of promoting communication between community members and project personnel. While people might not have attended a dengue meeting, they did turn up at meetings to plan the newsletters. During these meetings project staff obtained information about the communities that was crucial for planning a community-based recycling project that targeted many Aedes aegypti larval habitats. The newsletters were not an appropriate channel for transmitting information about dengue prevention and mosquito control.
