Vector-Borne Disease Control


 

NACCHO is supporting local health departments (LHDs) to advance the practice of environmental health by increasing their capacity to address existing and emerging environmental health issues, especially in the areas of vector control/integrated pest management and infectious diseases, as it relates to mosquitoes, ticks, rodents, and other emerging vectors.

Rodent Control and Public Health: NACCHO Releases Reports on Local Rodent Control Programs

In 2015, NACCHO and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) conducted a study to understand the current capacity of local rodent control programs across the United States. They assessed nine local rodent control programs to identify best practices, challenges, and technical assistance needs. Overall seven case studies summarizing each agency's rodent control program have currently been published as well as an executive summary.

We would love to hear about the local rodent control work your agency is conducting. Please email us here!

CSTE VBD Capacity Assessment
CSTE Vector-Borne Disease Capacity Assessment Report

The Council of State and Territorial Epidemiologists’ (CSTE’s) report on vector-borne disease capacity compares the capacity of state and large city/county health departments for surveillance, prevention, and control of West Nile Virus (WNV) and other mosquito-borne virus infections in 2012 to 2004. Researchers found that all 48 contiguous states retained some capacity of WNV surveillance. However, surveillance capacity has decreased since 2004 despite the endemicity of WNV and reccuring large outbreaks. For more information, read the full CSTE report or CDC’s Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report.
