Dengue and Chikungunya in Our Backyard: Preventing Aedes Mosquito-Borne Disease

Tuesday, May 19, 2015 at 1pm EDT

Aedes albopictus mosquitoeAedes aegypti and Aedes albopictus mosquitoes are the primary vectors for dengue, chikungunya, yellow fever, and Zika viruses. Taken together, these viruses account for almost 100 million cases of mosquito-borne disease per year. In the last 50 years, Dengue incidence has increased 30-fold by expanding into new countries and new areas. In 2014, more than a million cases of Chikungunya were reported worldwide. Outbreaks of mosquito-borne diseases depend on many factors and are especially difficult to predict, prevent and control. Because there are no licensed vaccines available to prevent dengue or chikungunya, controlling mosquito populations and reducing bites are currently the most effective prevention measures.
