Presentation

Theia Risks associated with infectious diseases SEC has established a spatial modeling of mosquito vectors for Rift Valley fever virus in Northern Senegal. The mapping tool proposes geographical layers derived from a model of mosquito population dynamics applied to three vector species of Rift Valley fever in Senegal: Aedes (Aedimorphus) vexans, Culex (Culex) poicilipes and Culex (Culex) tritaeniorhynchus (2014-2016).
