Due to the global alert caused by the Zika epidemic, worldwide concerns have raised advising on the health burden produced by the arbovirus spread including dengue and chikungunya. The Mediterranean region, where the potential vector Aedes albopictus is endemic, has been recently considered as of moderate-to-high risk of introduction for arbovirus. Strong public health management supported by translational research is a milestone for preparedness against this global threat that can potentially impact the Mediterranean Europe.
This event, jointly organized by B·Debate, an initiative of Biocat and "la Caixa" Foundation, co-organized with the Barcelona Institute for Global Health (ISGlobal), aims to generate a forum for an interdisciplinary and international debate bringing together experts from different backgrounds to discuss about the critical issues related to public health, epidemiology, entomology, virology, clinical care and diagnostics.
