Technical document for the implementation of interventions based on generic operational scenarios for Aedes aegypti control
MetadataShow full item record
Arboviral diseases such as dengue, chikungunya, and Zika fever, transmitted mainly by the Aedes aegypti and A. albopictus mosquitoes, are public health problems in the Region of the Americas... The recent outbreak and rapid spread of ZIKV in the Americas drew attention to the importance of organizing and strengthening A. aegypti control activities (Ferguson et al., 2016) and keeping all health systems in the Hemisphere on constant alert. Also worrisome is the potential reemergence and risk of reurbanization of the yellow fever virus, which in Brazil has caused explosive outbreaks in the wild, although some of them have occurred in proximity to urban centers (WHO, 2018)… The purpose of this publication is to provide a framework for planning and implementing A. aegypti surveillance, prevention, and control activities through risk stratification to support the development of potential operational scenarios at the local level. Operational scenarios serve as a reference for selecting the best tools for vector control and using them more efficiently.
