Dengue is the fastest spreading disease in the world and a permanent threat to public health, since half of the global population is at risk of contracting the disease. Given the seriousness of the disease at the national and global level, it is necessary to generate new useful prediction methodologies for decision-making in public health. Therefore, the reported cases of dengue between 2015 and 2020 in Ecuador were characterized. A retrospective descriptive study was carried out, using the official gazette database, characterizing dengue cases. An endemic channel was developed describing the methodology used. It was evidenced that the dengue trend in the provinces is positive, which indicates that in the last five years the number of cases has increased, together with the involvement of a common epidemiological cycle in the first period of each year of the last five years. The study of current data on dengue disease in Ecuador, its epidemic trend and the context in which it develops, allow us to conclude on the important need to plan and administer public health, applying the methodology proposed for the elaboration of endemic channels in the surveillance of situations of interest in public health that lead to control actions of both national and territorial scope that are sustained over time.
