Abstract: In the Pacific Island Countries and Territories (PICTs) an increasing frequency of infections due to emerging mosquito-borne viruses namely DENV, CHIKV and ZIKV over the last decade is supported by both acute phase diagnosis and retrospective serosurveys. The purpose of this study was to characterize mosquito-borne viruses that recently circulated in the Pacific Islands by performing phylogenetic analysis. Moreover, the present study also trialed the use of serum dried on filter papers (SFP) for the confirmation of mosquito-borne viral infections using the Microsphere Immuno-Assay (MIA).
