NACCHO's Practical Guide to Building Local Mosquito Control Capacity

Jul 29, 2021 | Anu Varma

Ahead of World Mosquito Day (August 20), a new National Association of County and City Health Officials (NACCHO) resource provides information on establishing baseline activities for local mosquito control as well as enhancing the building blocks of a comprehensive program: surveillance; control and abatement; resistance testing; communication and outreach; partnerships; and workforce development.

Based on the results from the 2017 National Vector Assessment, NACCHO and its vector control workgroup members identified the need for a focused, practical guide to help local health departments build new local mosquito control programs or enhance existing capabilities in the core competencies.

This work was sponsored by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
