Mosquito-borne diseases experts, national and local vector control agencies, and health departments will meet with distinguished scientists and mosquito-borne diseases experts to prepare for, conduct surveillance of, and respond to the detection of invasive Aedes mosquitoes, travel-related Zika cases, and locally transmitted cases.
