Improving the built environment in urban areas to control Aedes aegypti-borne diseases
Improving the built environment would contribute to a long-term solution to reducing the threat of Ae.
Consequences of the Expanding Global Distribution of Aedes albopictus for Dengue Virus Transmission
The dramatic global expansion of Aedes albopictus in the last three decades has increased public health concern because it is a potential vector of numerous arthropod-borne viruses (arboviruses),
Emerging and Re-emerging Arboviral Diseases as a Global Health Problem
The recent epidemic spread of Zika virus throughout the Americas is the evidence that arboviruses are likely to continually emerge and re-emerge and that improved technologies and knowledge is essential to deal with future vector-borne epidemics, and research priorities should focus on surveillance systems and vector control tools, as well as on the development of antiviral molecules or candidate vaccine.
Zika and chikungunya: mosquito‐borne viruses in a changing world
The current knowledge about the transmission ecology of two recent arbovirus invaders, the chikungunya and Zika viruses, is reviewed, highlighting viral biology, historical routes of transmission, and viral mechanisms facilitating rapid global invasion.

Epidemiology of Zika Virus Infection
Increased surveillance in several Southeast Asian counties has led to increased case recognition, including an outbreak in Singapore, and the first reports of birth defects linked to ZIKAV in the region.

The global distribution of chikungunya is assessed and high-resolution maps are produced, using an established modelling framework that combines a comprehensive occurrence database with bespoke environmental correlates, including up-to-date Aedes distribution maps, to guide estimation of the global burden of CHIKV.
Mapping global environmental suitability for Zika virus
A large portion of tropical and sub-tropical regions globally have suitable environmental conditions with over 2.17 billion people inhabiting these areas, showing environmental suitability for Zika.
