Abstract:

Disease Vector Ecology Profiles DVEPs are concise summaries of vector-borne and other militarily significant diseases that occur in specific countries. DVEPs focus on vector-borne diseases and emphasize essential epidemiology, vector bionomics, behavior, and pesticide resistance. Selected bibliographies of pertinent disease and disease vector literature are included. DVEPs are compiled from unclassified literature and are intended to provide a historical profile of arthropod-borne disease epidemiology in the recent past for selected geographical areas. The epidemiology of arthropod-borne disease is constantly changing, especially in developing countries undergoing rapid growth, ecological change, andor large migrations of refugee populations. Therefore, DVEPs should be supplemented with recent information on foreign public health status and medical developments.
