Abstract in another language

Various mosquito-borne diseases were recently transmitted for the first time in Europe. This was allowed by a combination of interacting changes. Non-native and invasive competent vector species were introduced. Continuously increasing human traveling activity has elevated the likelihood of introducing potentially transmittable pathogens. Climate change has improved habitat conditions for vectors and is now supporting their spread into new areas. Warmer temperatures have increasingly provided conditions for successful autochthonous transmission. Hitherto, such travel diseases could not be transmitted here because of the lack of competent vectors. It is possible that these regionally-novel diseases may not be properly and timely diagnosed. Correspondingly, further transmissions will likely occur. Transdisciplinary exchange of information will be required to limit these novel risks.
