Communication toolkit

Following an outbreak of chikungunya in the area of Ravenna, Italy in Summer 2007 and the increasing presence of Aedes albopictus mosquitoes in Europe, ECDC has prepared a Chikungunya Communications Toolkit. It provides template materials containing background information and practical advice on chikungunya prevention and control. 

The template materials are targeted at three key audiences: the general public in affected areas, visitors travelling to affected areas and health practitioners. Communicators in the Member States can adapt these materials, which include factsheets, brochures, posters and presentations, for use at national level.
