Abstract:

Since 2001, the United States has been engaged in Operation Enduring Freedom OEF in Afghanistan. Although vector-borne disease in Afghanistan does not present as high a risk in comparison to other areas into which the US military deploys, such as sub-Saharan Africa it does present sufficient risk to adversely impact military operations. This article discusses the growth and state of US military entomological support to the Afghan theater of operations ATO.
