Organization Description: CDC has been working in southern Puerto Rico since 2012 to conduct sentinel enhanced surveillance for acute febrile illnesses. CDC seeks to build upon this experience to implement a community-based research platform to detect incident infections with tropical arboviruses and ultimately evaluate interventions to prevent infection with them. We are establishing the Communities Organized to Prevent Arboviruses (COPA) project. This community-based research platform in southern Puerto Rico includes several objectives such as: to establish community engagement to support the implementation of a community-based research platform for arbovirus surveillance and research; to implement a community cohort to annually assess arboviral infection incidence and prevalence; to establish a community surveillance system to assess annual incidence of acute febrile illness and its etiology; to establish entomological surveillance for the identification and quantification of adult and immature mosquito populations; 2) evaluate the feasibility and effectiveness of a combination of interventions to reduce infections with arboviruses ; and 3) establish a surveillance site at a clinical facility to document the incidence and etiology of acute febrile illness. To support this efforts the epidemiology team at the dengue branch has a diverse team of medical doctors, doctors in veterinary medicine, epidemiologists, behavioral scientists and data managers.
