It’s time for a bit of variety. Sadly, we need to move on from malaria to deal with other arthropod-borne diseases. Next, it’s the turn of the arbovirus infections, with particular emphasis on the ones that we encounter more often in our own region. Next Tuesday (11th May, 2010) we’re running the arbovirus infection unit in our Clinical Tropical Medicine series. There will be two mini-lectures, the first of which is reproduced here for wider educational use. The second will be a Medical Entomology module on the arthropod vectors of arbovirus infection.
