Chikungunya and Zika viruses have been responsible for explosive epidemics in the recent past, with numerous cases still suffering from long term sequelae in endemic countries. With climate change and the abundance of mosquito vectors, as well as the accumulation of non-immune populations, cases have increased recently. Come join our experts and learn about the latest risk areas, the significant burden for travelers, and encouraging results in vaccine research.
