Crimean-Congo Haemorrhagic Fever: Introduction
Crimean-Congo haemorrhagic fever (CCHF) is a widespread disease caused by a tick-borne virus that can result in severe viral haemorrhagic fever outbreaks, with case fatality rates of 10–40%. CCHF is endemic in Africa, the Balkans, the Middle East and Asian countries south of the 50th parallel north – the geographical limit of the principal tick vector. This course provides a general introduction to CCHF and is intended for frontline responders engaged in preventing and managing outbreaks. (WHO)
