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. A selected bibliography of pertinent disease and disease vector literature is included. DVEPs are synopses of relevant entomological and arthropod-borne disease information. They are compiled from unclassified scientific literature, and they 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 dynamic, and incidence and prevalence are constantly changing. This is especially true for Third World countries, which are undergoing rapid development and ecological change, and those areas experiencing migrations of large refugee populations as a result of civil strife. This document should be supplemented with recent information on foreign public health status and medical developments. Component medical department activities may have updated regional information for their areas of responsibility. Current disease risk assessments, information on parasitic and communicable diseases, and other aspects of general medical intelligence can be obtained from the Armed Forces Medical Intelligence Center AFMIC, Fort Detrick, Frederick, MD 21701 301-619-7574, DSN 343-7574. Additional information can be obtained from the Navy Preventive Medicine Information System NAPMIS, which maintains up-to-date Disease Risk Assessment Profiles DISRAPs and Disease Vector Risk Assessment Profiles VECTRAPs on most countries of the world. DISRAPs and VECTRAPs can be obtained by contacting the Navy Environmental Health Center NEHC 804-444-7575 extension 456, DSN 564-7575 ext 456.
