Vector-borne diseases have not only adversely affected the health of the people in the region but also impeded overall socioeconomic development.  Some of these diseases are fatal if not treated, while others leave patients disfigured and disabled.  They account for 17% of the estimated global burden of all infectious diseases. The National Academy of Vector Borne Diseases (NAVBD) convenes national and international seminars, symposia and workshops to exchange knowledge on recent advances in the field of vectors and vector-borne diseases and raise public awareness. The 14th Conference in the series on “Vectors and Vector Borne Diseases” (ICOV-14) will be organized jointly by ICMR-Regional Medical Research Centre, Bhubaneswar and National Academy of Vector Borne Diseases (NAVBD) at Hotel Swosti Premium, Bhubaneswar from 9th to 11th January 2019.
