Methodology: The study is based on data from DGS program and INSA, REVIVE, which verify the presence of mosquitoes and larvae that can cause contamination and diseases originating from mosquitoes, the analysis of these data and the other allows us to see the need for prophylactic care to have in our country, especially in Madeira, which, for its location and climate can foster the emergence of these. Results: Samples and data collected by the REVIVE program did not detect the presence of the virus mosquitoes in continental Portugal, however climate change that Portugal crosses can cause the onset of mosquito vectors of carriers, so you want to public education for preventive measures can combat the proliferation of mosquitoes carriers. Conclusion: Although there are no mosquitoes, educate the public for mosquito prevention measures is the most important think to prevent apperance of this vectores. Thus, this study provides a number of solutions to minimize the proliferation of mosquito vectors.
