International conference on advances in surveillance and control methods for Aedes-borne diseases and urban vectors

Ifakara Health Institute and Institut de Recherche pour le Développement (IRD) are thrilled to announce the inaugural joint international conference on « Advances in Surveillance and Control Methods for Aedes-Borne Diseases and Urban Vectors ». This event is organized with support from the European INOVEC project and is scheduled to take place from August 26-28, 2024, in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania.

This conference will serve as a pivotal forum for the exchange of ideas within the scientific community, welcoming researchers, students, academia, public health professionals, stakeholders, donor agencies, industry representatives, and international organizations dedicated to combating vector-borne diseases (VBDs).

The conference will be organized around three key themes: the Biology and Ecology of Aedes Vectors, Integrated Approaches to Vector Control, and Innovation in Vector Control.

The aim is to cultivate collaboration, critically review existing evidence, establish new networks, mobilize resources, and advocate for both fundamental and translational research, to ultimately mitigate the global burden of vector-borne diseases.

We invite all interested participants to contribute by submitting abstracts via the Abstract Submission Form.
