Enhanced Surveillance and Control of Arboviruses in Puerto Rico

The purpose of this notice of funding opportunity (NOFO) is to maintain a research platform for arboviruses in a high-risk area of southern Puerto Rico through a community-based longitudinal cohort to monitor arboviral disease and clinic-based surveillance of acute febrile illness.

This project


aims to continue and strengthen existing systems for the monitoring of arboviral disease through several core research objectives including:
(1) strengthening hospital surveillance of acute febrile illness (AFI); (2) maintaining an AFI platform for conducting clinical research; (3) completing and maintaining a community-based cohort to annually assess incidence and prevalence of arboviral infection as well as the incidence and etiology of other AFIs in selected communities; (4) establishing a data management system; and (5) establishing collaborations with the local government, community leaders and other stakeholders to ensure long-term support for the program.
