This conference will include all Aedes related infections in addition to Zika. Aedes related infections have become a concern and continue to be a global threat with Europe being one of the affected areas.
Recently Aedes related autochtonus infections of Chikungunya and Dengue have been increasingly reported. In addition, Zika virus is still circulating around the globe and continues to pose a scientific challenge with numerous unanswered aspects. The disease has an enormous impact on mothers, families, childbearing women and travelers. Despite many published papers there remain a lot of gaps, even though new information is constantly coming to light.
The multi-disciplinary spectrum of participants at the first conference, which was held in Washington DC in February 2017, contributed to a very fruitful interaction and papers selected for presentation were of a high standard and interest to all.
