Until 2015 – Entomological Monitoring and Integrated Vector Management (IVM)

Until 2015 – Entomological Monitoring and Integrated Vector Management (IVM)

Leaders
Dr Raman Velayudhan, WHO, Switzerland
Dr Michael Macdonald, Consultant, USA

Working Group Secretariat
Dr Konstantina Boutsika, Swiss TPH

An extension of the WHO IVM Initiative, this work stream will support countries to undertake a Vector Control Needs Assessment and Strategic Planning. With materials produced through the broader WHO IVM partnership, including the IVM Handbook, Core Training Curriculum and Policy Guidance, partners are developing the cadre of field entomologists and vector control specialists, with the supporting health systems, that are essential of all our work.
