The Global Challenge of Vector Borne Diseases and How to Control Them

Together with collaborators at the Innovative Vector Control Consortium, Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine and the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, the Center of Excellence for Entomology and Vector Control (ARCTEC) have created a Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) entitled 'The Global Challenge of Vector Borne Diseases and How to Control Them'. This may be of interest to those of you wishing to find out more about the World Health Organization's Vector Response, modern vector control approaches, or how to better design vector control programs. The course is hosted online at Future Learn and now open for enrollment until the 21st of September.

TDR and the Global Vector Hub (GVH) have developed a web-based global directory of medical entomology courses as a new resource for strengthening the capacity of scientists combating neglected tropical diseases and other vector-borne diseases.

Global Atlas of Medical Entomology Schooling (GAMES)

TDR has supported the development of a Global Atlas of Medical Entomology Schooling (GAMES), which lists a total of 126 medical entomology courses offered both on-campus and through distance learning in 32 countries across all WHO regions, covering seven languages. The freely available directory was developed in collaboration with the GVH and ARCTEC at the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine (LSHTM), following the mapping of courses available globally. WHO’s Department of Control of Neglected Tropical Diseases and the WHO Global Malaria Programme have also reviewed the directory and provided recommendations. For each course, session dates, course outline, fees, language of instruction and responsible managers are listed.

Resources for regulators

Thailand Case Study

The Bureau of Cosmetics and Hazardous Substances Control of the Food and Drug Administration oversees the regulation of vector control products in Thailand. The registration process for vector control products in Thailand sees effective collaboration between different ministries through the Hazardous Substance Committee. Case study will be available soon! Sign up as a VCAP member to receive an update when the case study is published.

Thailand Case Study

Malaysia Case Study

In Malaysia, vector control tools are regulated by the Pesticide Board under the Department of Agriculture. There exists well-defined processes and guidelines for the registration of vector control products. Malaysia’s acceptance of regional toxicology data and policy of not mandating in-country trials saves cost for the manufacturer reduces cost for the manufacturers and also reduces the timeline shortens the lead time to get urgent vector control products to market.
