The tropical mosquito-transferred virus diseases Dengue, Zika and Chikungunya are causing hundreds of millions infections worldwide every year. Their occurrences are often linked, also due to their common transfer vector – the mosquito – thus they are of interest as a group together. Areas of prevalence include vast rural areas of low to middle income countries such as Indonesia, often with sub-optimal access to medical facilities. An affordable, reliable and easy-to-use point-of-care test would assist monitoring outbreaks, allowing earlier countermeasures such as mosquito extermination or setup of temporary on-site medical aid, as well as help allowing timely treatment in the often far-away hospitals.
