In the three years from 2013 to 2015, the HAIRS group continued to assess an extensive range of incidents and syndromes covering an array of infectious agents. The increasing recognition of the importance of vectors and vector borne disease to human and animal health within the United Kingdom has become apparent over this period. Incidents of undiagnosed morbidity and mortality and novel pathogens remain a priority for assessment by the group.

This report describes many topics discussed by the HAIRS group since 2013, and includes the outcomes of those discussions.
