Mandate of the Division:

 

 

Centre for Arboviral And Zoonotic Diseases comprises of 9 National Reference Laboratory dealing with Zoonotic diseases of public health importance including outbreak prone and emerging infectious diseases. The role of the division is primarily to provide laboratory evidence by conducting special and reference level tests which are not available at most of the institutes or medical colleges in India. Currently the work is being carried out on the following Zoonotic diseases: Rabies, Kala-azar, Arboviral infections (Dengue, JE, Chikungunya, Zika virus & CCHF) Toxoplasmosis, Brucellosis, Leptospirosis, Rickettsiosis, Hydatidosis, Neurocysticercosis, Plague and Anthrax etc

CAZD is also involved in Plague surveillance and preparedness assisted with Plague surveillance unit, NCDC  Bengaluru Branch.
