Guidelines for Surveillance, Prevention and Control of West Nile Virus (13 September 2002)
Due to the threatened spread of West Nile virus to the countries of the Region, the Program on Communicable Diseases has summarized some general guidelines as PAHO's recommendations on the surveillance of this disease, based on the proceedings and discussion in the "West Nile Virus Surveillance Workshop" organized by PAHO at CAREC in Trinidad and Tobago from 29 April to 3 May 2002. The guidelines’ objective is to timely detect West Nile virus activity in reservoir populations and vectors in order to institute the appropriate measures in terms of enhanced surveillance, transmission and vector control, as well as mass communication.
