CONSULTANCY FOR THE IMPLEMENTATION OF A KNOWLEDGE, ATTITUDES AND PRACTICES (KAP) SURVEY ON ZIKA AND OTHER MOSQUITO BORNE DISEASES (MBDs) IN SIX (6) CARPHA MEMBER STATES. Closing Date 21st February 2020.

Vector-borne diseases (VBDs) such as those caused by viruses and parasites which are transmitted to humans, mainly by mosquitoes, are a major threat to the health and economies of societies globally. Over 80% of the world’s population is at risk of contracting a VBD with mosquito borne diseases (MBD) having the greatest impact (Franklinos et. Al, 2019)1. MBDs such as human malaria, dengue, chikungunya and zika are diseases account for approximately 17% of the estimated global burden of infectious diseases, with approximately 700, 000 attributable deaths each year. The Caribbean region is a hot spot for the emergence and persistence of VBDs in the American continent. Dengue-like illnesses were recorded in the Americas since the 1600s, but the modern era of understanding started with the isolation of the dengue virus for the first time in 1943-44. The Trinidad Regional Virus Laboratory (1952-1974) and the Caribbean Epidemiology Centre (CAREC 1975-2012), which were merged into CARPHA in 2013, contributed significantly to the global understanding of the disease.
