ECDC publishes today updated maps on the geographical distribution of exotic mosquitoes and phlebotomines in Europe. These are published regularly on the website to provide the ECDC stakeholders and the general public with the most up-to-date information on vector distribution.
The outcome of collaborative work of the VBORNET network, the maps are based on data collected by the network members. The group includes medical entomologists and public health experts across Europe, and the network is funded by ECDC.
ECDC continues to improve the data collection for the maps: the VBORNET network is therefore looking for experts in vector-borne diseases who are interested in sharing data and networking (experts can contact VBORNET at email@example.com).
