SSTMP Vector-borne diseases represent a rapidly increasing issue in Switzerland, both for the veterinary field and for human diseases. This areas has been already identified two years as a priority and the Swiss Society of Tropical Medicine and Parasitology supported the creation of the Swiss Vector Entomology Group. The meeting now offers the possibility to review the vector situation in Switzerland and Europe more generally, and to discuss possible next steps for strengthening our response capacity.
