Overview

The global strategic framework for integrated vector management provides a basis for strengthening vector control in a manner that is compatible with national health systems. Through evidence-based decision-making, it rationalizes the use of human and financial resources and organizational structures for the control of vector-borne disease and emphasizes the engagement of communities to ensure sustainability. It encourages a multidisease control approach, integration with other disease control measures and the considered and systematic application of a range of interventions, often in combination and synergistically.
