Abstract

Societal and ecosystem change have a potentially profound impact of on human health and well-being. Alteration in the pattern of infectious diseases could be one of the most significant results of this process. Arboviral infections are a global public health issue with significant morbidity and mortality burden in the human population. Ross River virus (RRV) infection is the most common arboviral disease in Australia and some Pacific island nations. The present paper aims to illustrate the epidemiological and socioecological implications of RRV infection in Australia and to make recommen¬≠dations for public health response to this disease.
