Response Requested for Second Nationwide Assessment of Local Vector Control Organizations

Sep 23, 2020

UPDATE: This survey was released on November 10, 2020. All local vector control contacts should be receiving the vector assessment survey in their designated inboxes. If the assessment or NACCHO’s contact confirmation email has failed to reach your inbox, double-check your spam folders to confirm, and immediately follow up with NACCHO’s vector control staff to let them know who can best respond to questions on your program’s mosquito and tick strategies. NACCHO’s vector control team can be reached at vectorcontrol@naccho.org. Moving forward, NACCHO highly recommends whitelisting the organization to avoid any disruption of future communications.

The National Association of County and City Health Officials (NACCHO), in collaboration with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), is administering the second nationwide assessment of local vector control organizations in the United States.

Before the initial assessment that NACCHO conducted in 2016, almost no data existed on the preparedness of local agencies for a mosquito-borne virus outbreak. The 2016 assessment provided baseline data on the mosquito control and surveillance capabilities of nearly 2,000 programs. Read the full report here.

The assessment findings have been used to inform CDC funding of state and local vector control programs, and to determine how NACCHO can best provide targeted guidance and training opportunities for local agencies. Over the past few years, the assessment has helped NACCHO:

For the 2020 assessment, NACCHO needs your help!

Starting September 2020, we have been reaching out to every vector control program in the country to confirm the point of contact for the assessment. When we reach out, please let us know who can best respond to questions on your vector control program’s mosquito and tick strategies.

For additional information about this and other technical assistance opportunities from NACCHO, please visit our website or contact vectorcontrol@naccho.org.
