Conference Series LLC invites participants across the globe to this annual flagship conference which aims to bring together individuals from academia, government, and industry to discuss and exchange ideas in the fields of Vector borne diseases. International Conference on Vector borne diseases will feature world renowned keynote speakers, technical workshops and career guidance sessions.
The main theme of the conference is “State-of-the-Art Trends in Vector Borne diseases” with an objective to encourage young minds to overcome the challenges in the field of parasitology by providing an opportunity to meet the experts.
Vectors are organisms that transmit pathogens and parasites from one infected person (or animal) to another, causing serious diseases in human populations.
Vector-borne plant and animal diseases, including several newly recognized pathogens, reduce agricultural productivity and disrupt ecosystems throughout the world. These diseases profoundly restrict socioeconomic status and development in countries with the highest rates of infection, many of which are located in the tropics and subtropics.These diseases are commonly found in tropical and sub-tropical regions and places where access to safe drinking-water and sanitation systems is problematic.
Vector-borne diseases account for 17% of the estimated global burden of all infectious diseases. The most deadly vector-borne disease, malaria, caused an estimated 627 000 deaths in 2012. However, the world’s fastest growing vector-borne disease is dengue, with a 30-fold increase in disease incidence over the last 50 years.
