Le pharmacien d'officine face aux moustiques tigres en Nouvelle Aquitaine

Abstract : Who, in Nouvelle Aquitaine, has never dealt or heard of Aedes albopictus better known by its name of the Asian tiger mosquito? After its birth in Asia, this mosquito has conquered all five continents and for about five years has been a newcomer among the common mosquitoes living in France. Fighting Aedes albopictus begins with the identification of its presence thanks to its particular morphological features which are: its size less than 1 cm, the black and white stripes on its body and legs and the lengthwise line on its chest. Furthermore, it is to know its diurnal mores and its tendency to reproduce in stagnant waters that we must therefore seek to eliminate. Lastly, it is above all to realize that it is able to transmit dangerous arboviroses on occasion if it evolves in a contaminated territory, as we see in our French overseas territories. First of all, prevention against Aedes albopictus requires education of the population. Moreover, Nouvelle Aquitaine’s pharmacists are ready to support patients in order to fight against this Asian tiger mosquito by promoting the latest official recommendations, by recommending skin repellents and mosquito nets impregnated with insecticides in particular. The pharmacist is a real public health relay in the field, to answer patients' questions while encouraging preventive measures. In conclusion, this thesis is the beginning of my humble contribution to raising awareness of this serious public health issue.
