Description

Guest Presenter Professor Craig Williams presents Mosquito ecology and epidemics - vector-borne disease threats to Australia

Australia is home to a number of diseases transmitted by vectors such as mosquitoes and ticks. Although these may be serious infections for individuals, on a global scale our country has relatively little vector-borne illness. Despite this, Australians are at risk of exotic vector-borne diseases, and many people acquire infections whilst travelling overseas. Furthermore, Australia is at constant risk of importation of exotic diseases and new types of mosquitoes capable of transmitting them. In this talk Craig Williams will outline some of the major vector-borne disease risks for Australians, and consider the probabilities of them becoming established in our country.
