Rift valley fever (RVF) is a debilitating disease leading to economic loss in livestock, severe clinical forms, and fatal cases in humans. The re-emergence of RVF in some countries of the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region has caused global public concern. The aim of this review is to highlight the different outbreaks in the MENA region and the threat generated by the extension of geographical distribution of the disease, drawing special attention to different determinant factors, and to discuss different strategies to overcome and control the trans-boundary extension of RVF.
