One Health network for the prevention of vector-borne diseases around the Mediterranean and Sahel regions

Exhibition on Vectors and Diseases
Have a look at the exhibition panels to learn more about a
broad range of vectors and understand how they transmit
diseases and how to achieve their control.

The project
The MediLabSecure project (2019-2022) will build on the foundations laid down
during the first phase.
It aims at preventing vector-borne diseases around the Mediterranean and
Sahelian countries by reinforcing an international network of laboratories and
public health institutions through capacity building and networking activities.

02/2019 - free online course in medical entomology #2


The MOOC  (Massive Online Open Course) “Medical entomology” will teach the role of vectors in the functioning of ecosystems and how to interrupt the vector transmission chain with each session devoted to a particular taxonomic group of insects and ticks.. It is organized from an entomological perspective, with each session devoted to a particular taxonomic group of insects and ticks.

The course is free and accessible online here. It will start on March 18, 2019, but you can already register!

FUN-MOOC : Medical Entomology par  fr-universite-numerique


The MOOC is dedicated to students in biological or medical sciences, public health advisors (human and animal health), stakeholders in vector control, researchers and NGO members.

This MOOC is organized in 6 weeks of 3-6 sequences. Each sequence is composed of a 10 minutes video and a multiple choice test to help students check their understanding.
The videos are in English subtitled in French and English.


02/2019 - roadmap towards the harmonization of entomological surveillance systems in the mediterranean area

A roadmap towards harmonization of entomological surveillance systems in the Mediterranean area regarding transmission risks of mosquito-borne viruses has been released by the medical entomology working group. This document completes the strategic document on integrated surveillance of arboviruses in countries of the Mediterranean and Black Sea regions, as guidance to implement entomological surveillance in a comprehensive “One Health” framework.

02/2019 - two new publications RELEASED within the medilabsecure network


The beginning of the year has been very fruitful with 2 new articles carried ou within the MediLabSecure network. The first one, entitled "Distribution Chart for Euro-Mediterranean mosquitoes (Western Paleartic Region)", and published in last January, is a synthetic chart of current knowledge of the mosquito distribution in the Euro-Mediterranean Region. The second one, published in February and entitled "Implementation of the One Health approach to fight arbovirus infections in the Mediterranean and Black Sea region : assessing integrated surveillance in Serbia, Tunisia and Georgia" is a synthetis of the MeSA Study which is a qualitative situational analysis involving human, animal and entomology sectors of vector borne disease surveillance in these three countries of the MediLabSecure network.
