A comprehensive report about the current meaning of vector-borne infections for Public Health (PH) in Europe is given in the new publication that emerged from the EU-funded project EDENext (www.edenext.eu). The paper of Kerstin Dressel (sine-Institut), Martin Groschup (Friedrich Loeffler-Institut) und Martin Niedrig (Robert Koch-Institut) examplifies the PH situation by using two different case studies: Crimean Congo Hemorrhagic Fever in the Republic of Macedonia and Turkey and Nephropathica epidemica (also referred to as hantavirus disease) in Finland, Germany and France (pp 120-128). This article also applies the IRGC risk governance framework adapted within EDENext for Public Health purposes.
The current paper is published in a book dedicated to report about “The impact of a decade (2004-2015) of research on vector-borne diseases”.
