  • Description:
    Our nation’s ability to defend against the present and future threat of vector-borne diseases relies on a comprehensive national system that is able to detect, prevent, and respond to these threats. A concerted and sustained effort is needed to address significant challenges and reverse the upward trends in illness, suffering, and death from vector-borne diseases. This effort must enhance collaboration, coordination, and communication across human, animal, and environmental health sectors, as well as other relevant sectors, to address vector-borne threats at the human-animal-environment interface (a One Health approach). To reverse the current upward trends in vector-borne diseases and to increase the nation’s ability to protect the U.S. population from these diseases, five federal departments and the Environmental Protection Agency contributed to developing a national framework for vector-borne disease prevention and control. These federal partners represent the primary federal departments and agencies engaged in vector-borne disease prevention and control. The scope of this framework includes federal activities necessary to detect, prevent, and control vector-borne diseases in humans in the United States. While this framework is domestically focused and limited to activities within the mission of the federal government, it relates to a broader range of critical activities such as clinical care, vector control services, and international work. Successful implementation of the framework will require collaboration within and outside of the federal government. CS6317913-A Brochure_National_Framework_VBDs-P.pdf
