Crimean Congo Haemorrhagic fever (CCHF) virus is a neglected emerging pathogen, which causes widespread and fatal epidemics in humans.

Wildlife and domesticated animals are important facilitators of the spread of this deadly virus directly and through ticks that they host. Hyalomma ticks are believed to form only stable populations in arid regions south of the 50th latitude in Europe. Today there is no licensed approved vaccine against CCHF virus.
