Researchers of the World Mosquito Program (WMP) presented on 11/21 new evidence of the reduction of arbovirus-caused diseases in areas where Aedes aegypti with Wolbachia were released, in Brazil, Indonesia, Vietnam and Australia. Wolbachia is an intracellular bacterium that, once present inside mosquitoes, prevents dengue, zika and chikungunya viruses from developing within these insects, therefore reducing the transmission of the diseases....

The history of global health and of the World Health Organization (WHO) is often told by the few voices that are in positions of command. However, the multilateral historical perspective and research in human sciences can contribute with new discoveries that challenge the idea that global health decisions are taken by a handful of actors from dominant countries. This is the proposal of the researcher of the University of York and head of WHO...

Arboviruses are transmitted through insect bites and cause several diseases. Among the most well-known in Brazil are dengue fever, zika and chikungunya. Other arboviruses, such as mayaro and o’nyong-nyong, less known but also with potential to cause epidemics, have drawn the attention of the scientific community, with the appearance of the first cases of these diseases in areas where there was previously no trace of them. A work group...

Research from Fiocruz reveals that children exposed to the Zika virus may have developmental delays and neurosensory changes in the second year of life. The study evaluated 216 children for two years and also found that neurological development was lower than normal in children exposed to the virus in the first weeks of pregnancy, while children exposed in the last weeks had fewer complications. There were eight cases of microcephaly...

Since 2014, great chikungunya and zika fever epidemics have ravaged Brazil and other countries in the Americas, being added to dengue fever to compose a group of mosquito-transmitted febrile diseases that represent an emerging urban public health issue: the arboviroses. Thus, the correct clinical differentiation of each one of those diseases has become even more difficult. Furthermore, a simultaneous infection (coinfection) by more than one...
