Pharmacists are uniquely positioned to help communities and patients protect themselves from vector-borne diseases (VBDs). This webinar will describe the most prevalent VBDs in the European region and identify the most relevant roles that pharmacists can play in their prevention (including vector-control strategies and other measures), management and optimal treatment.

Learning objectives:
1. Describe the characteristics and epidemiology of the main VBDs in the European region;
2. Determine the roles that pharmacists can play in the prevention, detection, control and management of pharmacotherapy of VBDs; and
3. Identify the experiences developed by countries in Europe to support the actions of pharmacists in the fight against VBDs.
