MESA Correspondents Program

Reports from the PAMCA Conference “Empowering local institutions to set the agenda for the elimination of vector-borne diseases”, September 20 - 22, 2021

The keynote talk on “Empowering local institutions to set the agenda for the elimination of vector-borne diseases” was given by Florence Larbi (Zoomlion Ghana Limited, Ghana). Larbi pointed out the positives in increased coverage and use of vector control tools, as was observed in the decline of malaria between the years 2000 and 2015. She, however, emphasized that VBDs are multifaceted, hence requiring intersectoral and multisectoral approaches to control them. She outlined ways by which local institutions can be empowered for VBDs elimination. Larbi concluded that VBDs can be eliminated by coordinated and well-tailored efforts involving all stakeholders in vector control.
