Overview

This report is the result of an informal expert consultation convened by the WHO Global Malaria Programme to develop an appropriate and comprehensive response to insecticide resistance. Participants were asked to review the current status of insecticide resistance in malaria vectors, and to identify options for a resistance management strategy that could help to preserve insecticide susceptibility, slow down the evolution of resistance, and prolong the effectiveness of current vector control interventions.
