One Health network for the prevention of vector-borne diseases around the Mediterranean and Black Sea regions
What do plague, malaria and chikungunya have in common?
These diseases and many others—or more precisely the causal agents responsible—are spread by 'vectors'. A vector is a transmission agent for microscopic organisms that cause diseases; these are spread to humans and animals by biting.
The exhibition shows a broad range of vectors and also discusses the research conducted by scientists to gain better knowledge of them in order to organise control.
