Entomology and Vector Control for Malaria Elimination Regional Meeting & Workshop


This meeting brought together regional vector control program officers, entomology experts and partner organizations from the Asia-Pacific region to review and share best practices and tools related to entomological monitoring and vector control, as well as strengthen entomology capacity and networks across the region.  The meeting was was comprised of two parts:

  • Part I: Strengthening tools and capacity for vector control programs, held over the first two days, will focus on supporting vector borne disease programs to share experience, assess priorities, and identify and strengthen the vector control tools and capacity needed to shift from malaria control to elimination. 
  • Part II: The Mekong Outdoor Malaria Transmission Network (MOMTN) Regional Workshop, during the final two days, will comprise a technical workshop on a key regional vector control issue, of critical importance in achieving elimination: residual and outdoor malaria transmission. These two days are designed to collectively explore the challenges of addressing this issue, and will build upon the previous work of the MOMTN.

The meeting and workshop was supported by APMEN, Kasetsart University Thailand, Roll Malaria Vector Control Working Group's MOMTN.
