Interpretive Summary:

Technical Abstract: Global climate greatly influences local conditions that can affect vector-borne arboviral disease patterns because the viruses, their vectors, and hosts are sensitive to temperature moisture, and other ambient environmental conditions. In this presentation we examine in detail linkages between climate, ecosystems and elevated transmission of dengue, chikungunya, and Rift Valley fever. During periods of elevated transmission there is a significantly increased risk of globalization of these and other hemorrhagic viruses. The ability to predict periods of high risk might permit us to design better containment or exclusion strategies to limit globalization. New methods of vector-borne disease surveillance and control are discussed.
