Rift Valley Fever in Niger

In the view of the experts participating in this risk assessment, Rift Valley Fever (RVF) in Niger currently poses a medium risk (a mean score of 5.75 on a scale of 0 to 10) to
human health, and a medium–high risk (a mean score of 6.5) to animal health.
The experts take the view that RVF is likely / very likely (a 66%–99% chance range) to occur in Mali during this vector season. Its occurrence in the neighbouring countries
of Benin, Burkina Faso and Nigeria is considered less probable – between unlikely (a 10%–30% chance) and as likely as not (a 33%–66% chance). [Read more]
