Besides their adverse health effects on humans, VBDs are a significant impediment to socio-economic development.Until now, the control of some VBDs has primarily relied on vertical vector control programmes.Understanding the Business Case Subject Creating a Strong, Persuasive Business Case Organizing and Presenting a Strong, Persuasive Business Case Article Summary Questions & Answers Related Articles References This article was co-authored by Michael R.

Conclusions: Uganda has successfully established an evidence-based IVM approach and consolidated strategic planning and operational frameworks for VBD control.The failure to effectively reduce the burden of VBD is due to multiple factors: human, technical (including insecticidal and drug resistance), operational, ecological, economic, and others [ 2 ].When well planned and effectively targeted, vector control is an important component of the prevention and management of these diseases.In addition, strengthened information, education and communication/behaviour change and communication, collaboration and coordination will be crucial in scaling up and using vector control interventions.
Malaria vector control; Vector borne disease control; Vector control needs assessment; Integrated vector management; Insecticide resistance management; Vector surveillance; Sustainability; Uganda Background A variety of vector-borne diseases (VBDs) often coexist in the same environment and impose a heavy burden on human populations, particularly in developing countries in tropical and sub-tropical zones [ 1 ].
Background Integrated vector management (IVM) is the recommended approach for controlling some vector-borne diseases (VBD).
