Vector-borne diseases have plagued human lives for centuries now. Recent advances in molecular biology, and genetics have enabled understanding of infection dynamics of various pathogens causing morbidity and mortality worldwide. Disease control and prevention involves both vector management and clinical alleviation and thus, surveillance and ecological studies play a crucial role in knowing the hotspots of both the vector and the infection in time and space. Novel methods for indexing vector population and advanced diagnostics and therapeutics to timely detect and treat affected population is the need of the hour.
This webinar ‘Surveillance of Vector-borne diseases: Exploring newer horizons’ shall focus on the need and methods of surveillance of vector-borne diseases.
