Technical Abstract: The time period 2008-2011 has been marked by a series of Rift Valley fever (RVF) outbreaks in Southern Africa. These multi-year episodes of RVF have not occurred in the region since the mid-1970s. We examine climatic and ecological conditions associated with the outbreaks and present results of our prediction and risk assessments prior to each outbreak episode.
