The past two decades have seen an increasing number of outbreaks of public health importance, of which the most recent and devastating is COVID-19, with a death toll of more than 5 million people and around 30% of survivors reporting long-term neurological symptoms. Other recent outbreaks include Zika virus infection, mainly affecting populations in South America and in Asia, West Nile virus in the Americas, and enterovirus associated acute flaccid paralysis in North America.

Emerging and re-emerging neuroinfectious diseases, including arthropod-borne infections, are of growing concern to the global-health community, given the multiple drivers for disease propagation that include climate change,2 expanding host susceptibility, and pathogen-related
