Rift Valley fever: Introduction
Rift Valley fever (RVF) is a viral zoonosis that primarily affects animals but can also infect humans. The majority of human infections result from contact with the blood or organs of infected animals. Human infections can also result from the bites of infected mosquitoes and hematophagous (blood-feeding) flies. The disease ranges from a mild flu-like illness to severe haemorrhagic fever that can be lethal. This course provides a general introduction to RVF and is intended for incident managers and personnel working for the United Nations, international organizations and NGOs.
