There is no specific treatment available

There is no specific treatment for JE; prevention is the best protection.

The only available care for JE survivors is supportive, which can range from immediate life support measures, to long-term rehabilitation.

How can you protect against JE?

If you’re traveling to Asia, it’s important to protect yourself from mosquitos that could carry the JE virus. Here are some protection strategies.

Insect repellent

Use insect repellent such as those containing DEET, IR3535, picardin oil or oil of lemon eucalyptus.

Barrier protection

Wear long-sleeves and long pants and socks when outdoors.

Environmental protection

Stay in places with air-conditioned or screened rooms, or use bed nets and aerosol spray room insecticides.

Reduced exposure

Keep your outdoor activities to a minimum, especially during peak biting hours, such as from dusk to dawn.

Vaccination

Ask your healthcare professional about being vaccinated if you are:

  • In a high-risk setting based on season, location, length of stay, and activities
  • Not sure of all the places you’ll go, where you’ll be, or how long you’ll be staying
  • Planning to be outdoors for an extended period of time, spend time in rural or agricultural areas, or travelling to an area with an ongoing JE outbreak
  • Planning many different trips to Asia over the next few years
