Abstract

Vectors are the biological agents that transmit the diseases causative agents from individual to individual. About six vector- borne diseases are reported in India’s tropical and subtropical regions also. The study results indicate that the maximum number of Dengue cases were reported during year 2019 (13331) fallowed by 2017 (5369), 2021 (4610), 2018 (4592) and the minimum cases were recorded in 2015 (1831) respectively.  While more deaths were reported in 2019 (07) than in 2016 (04), 2 deaths were reported in 2015 and 2018 respectively. While,  maximum number of suspicious cases of chikungunya was reported in 2019 (5352) and conformed cases are 1358, the minimum cases are reported in 2017 (58) and 2021 (57) respectively The National Vector Borne Disease Control Programme is introduced for  prevention & control of these vector borne diseases as an integral part of the National Rural Health Mission (NRHM) of India.
