Abstract:

Disease Vector Ecology Profiles DVEPs summarize unclassified literature on medically important, arthropods, vertebrates and plants that may adversely affect troops in specific countries or regions around the world. Primary emphasis is on the epidemiology of arthropod-borne diseases and the bionomics and control of disease vectors. DVEPs have proved to be of significant value to commanders, medical planners, preventive medicine personnel, and particularly medical entomologists. These people use the information condensed in DVEPs to plan and implement prevention and control measures to protect deployed forces from disease, injury and annoyance caused by vector and pest arthropods. In this document vector-borne diseases are resented in two groups those with immediate impact on military operations incubation period 15 days and those with delayed impact on military operations incubation period 15 days. For each disease, information is presented on military importance, transmission cycle, vector profiles, and vector surveillance and suppression.
