NSW Health undertakes vector-borne disease (VBD) surveillance to inform public health action:

Annual reports

Vector-borne diseases annual report, 2016 (first annual report).

These reports include analyses of notification data of notifiable arbovirus infections and other notifiable arthropod-borne infections in NSW residents.

VBD notifications data are extracted from the New South Wales Notifiable Conditions Information Management System (NCIMS). Data is correct at the time of publication but is subject to change.

Further information

Further information on notifications for particular vector-borne diseases is available; see the Infectious Diseases Data page and select the condition of interest. Various data filters are available, including date range, age-group, gender and local health district.

Surveillance of VBD infections in humans is supported by the NSW arbovirus and vector monitoring surveillance program. Annual arbovirus and vector monitoring surveillance reports, which describe local mosquito and sentinel chicken surveillance activities, are published by the Environmental Health Branch during the arbovirus season.​​​
