Until 2015 – Optimizing Evidence for Vector Control Interventions

Until 2015 – Optimizing Evidence for Vector Control Interventions

Prof Christian Lengeler, Swiss TPH, Switzerland
Dr John Gimnig, CDC, USA

Working Group Secretariat
Dr Konstantina Boutsika, Swiss TPH

This group (previously known as ‘Optimal Choice of Vector Control Methods’) is coordinating evidence from current field trials to optimize investments in combinations such as LLINs and IRS, and on new product categories such as durable wall linings. In the future they will work on protocols and products for area risk mapping and stratification.
