Introduction
1.1 Vector
Vectors are living organisms that can transmit infectious diseases between humans or from
animals to humans. Many of these vectors are bloodsucking insects, which ingest disease-
producing microorganisms during a blood meal from an infected host (human or animal) and
later inject it into a new host during their subsequent blood meal. Mosquitoes are the best known
disease vector. Others include ticks, flies, sandflies, fleas, triatomine bugs and some freshwater
aquatic snails (Parish, 2014)
1.2 Vector Borne diseases
Vector-borne diseases are illnesses caused by pathogens and parasites in human populations.
Every year there are more than 1 billion cases and over 1 million deaths from vector-borne
diseases such as malaria, dengue, schistosomiasis, human African trypanosomiasis,
leishmaniasis, Chagas disease, yellow fever, Japanese encephalitis and onchocerciasis, globally.
Vector-borne diseases account for over 17% of all infectious diseases. Distribution of these
diseases is determined by a complex dynamic of environmental and social factors (Jones, 2008).
