Training workshop on impregnation of filter papers for monitoring insecticide resistance

Date: 4–6 December 2017
Venue: Vector Control Research Unit (VCRU), Universiti Sains Malaysia, Penang, Malaysia

Following increased demand for insecticide impregnated papers, PAHO, AFRO and SEARO have requested capacity building to produce these test papers. While some centres are producing papers locally, they do not conform to standard WHO procedure. To decentralize and facilitate this growing demand, a training workshop will be held at VCRU.
