Socio-environmental variability and Barmah Forest virus disease transmission : a review of epidemiological evidence and future prospects
Naish, S. & Tong, Shilu (2011) Socio-environmental variability and Barmah Forest virus disease transmission : a review of epidemiological evidence and future prospects. International Journal of Geoinformatics, 7(1), pp. 37-42.
Barmah Forest Virus (BFV) disease is the most rapidly emerging mosquito-borne disease in Australia. BFV transmission depends on factors such as climate, virus, vector and the human population. However, the impact of climatic and social factors on BFV remains to be determined. This paper provided an overview of current research and discusses the future research directions on the BFV transmission. These research findings could be regarded as an impetus towards BFV prevention and control strategies.
