ECDC Regional meeting on West Nile fever real time surveillance and exchange of good practices on vector-borne diseases
This was the first regional meeting on West Nile fever real time surveillance and good practices on vector-borne diseases. The overall objective was to support the exchange of experience between EU and non-EU neighbouring countries on the surveillance of West Nile fever and the lessons learnt since 2011.

Vector distribution modelling
Vector borne diseases are a specific group of infectious diseases that are a (re-)emerging threat to Europe. One important aspect of preparedness for vector borne diseases is the surveillance of the introduction, establishment and spread of the main disease vectors.
A spatial modelling method for vector surveillance
One important aspect of preparedness for vector borne diseases is the surveillance of the introduction, establishment and spread of the main disease vectors. This document describes a methodology to estimate the vector distribution status for those NUTS3 units for which observations are not yet available. These estimates are produced with spatial modelling techniques, using the currently available distributions to calibrate the modelling process.
