2nd Meeting of IVM, Evidence and Capacity Work Stream

08 - 02 - 2017
Moevenpick Hotel, Geneva, Switzerland

General Information

The framework for the IVM E&C Work Stream is to (i) generate and share evidence on effective and efficient deployment of prior, existing and new vector control interventions and practices; (ii) generate and share evidence on integration of all vector control tools, including lessons from other regions and disease eradication programs; and (iii) work with WHO and RBM partners to build entomology and vector control capacity at all levels in endemic countries. Five potential projects were presented. These projects will be consolidated with activities from other work streams where there is overlap (e.g. capacity‐building) and refined into specific work stream plans.
