Guidance: Technologies for Vector-Borne Disease Surveillance

The Association of State and Territorial Health Officials (ASTHO) designed a guidance document  for state and territorial health agencies that are interested in surveillance tools to build or expand their vector-borne disease surveillance activities. This document identifies vector-borne disease surveillance technologies that public health agencies can use to monitor and mitigate mosquito-related outbreaks; outlines the integrated prevention, response, and mitigation activities that comprise a surveillance workflow that public health officials can use to track outbreaks and share information with the public; and shares best practices to develop a workflow for better decision making about vector-borne disease at local and state levels.
