In the countries where the disease is endemic, control of dengue is mainly based on the elimination or treatment of the water-filled containers where the main vector, Aedes aegypti, breeds, in interventions usually reliant on community participation. Although such control activities must be continuous, since vector eradication appears impossible, it should(More)
Geographic information systems (GIS) and remote sensing have been increasingly used in ecology and epidemiology, providing a spatial approach for animal health issues. Recent development of earth environmental satellites--i.e., their growing number, improving sensor resolutions and capabilities--has offered new opportunities to delineate possible habitats(More)
A wide variety of viral infectious diseases are transmitted to humans by ticks and in certain cases, theses diseases can lead to a severe encephalitis or haemorrhagic fever. Within the framework of a research programme on emerging viral diseases carried out by the French Institute of Research for the Development (Institut de Recherche pour le Développement,(More)
Severe epidemics of leptospirosis yearly occurred in Thailand since 1997, causing over 1,200 deaths, especially among farmers highly exposed while working in flooded rice fields. Main vectors are wild rodents, spreading the human pathogenic bacteria (spirocheta) in the environment through their urine. Phrae province, which has recorded among the highest(More)
This paper presents the main results of a research on the risks incurred by the Metropolitan District of Quito considering the people’s mobility and areas accessibility issues. This analysis relies on a methodology implemented within the framework of a programme called “Information System and risks within the Metropolitan District of Quito” carried out by(More)
