Article: 54/4608

The European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC) has published a report on current West Nile virus (WNV) surveillance and control capacities across EU/EEA countries, European Neighbourhood Policy (ENP) partner countries, and EU candidate/potential candidate countries. The report also includes a scoping literature review to collate existing knowledge and operational experience on the effectiveness of vector control practices in reducing WNV risk. 

The aim of the ECDC review was to identify, present and discuss studies on applied aspects of vector control under specific operational scenarios of WNV management, to establish what worked, where and why, and equally, to ascertain what did not work and why.
