A new website for arbovirus surveillance has been established under the auspices of the Australian Government Department of Health and Ageing. The National Arboviral and Malaria Surveillance website was launched in early November 2003.
The website is a joint Commonwealth and State initiative and has been designed to provide information on arboviral disease in Australia to assist in the control of arboviral disease and malaria.
The website aims to increase public awareness of the risks of mosquito-borne disease, and to facilitate the dissemination of related surveillance data.
