OPTIMISATION OF WOLBACHIA BASED CONTROL STRATEGIES TO REDUCE DENGUE INCIDENCE AND DISEASE

Grant number: 1037003 | Funding period: 2013 - 2017

Completed

Abstract

The project will build on recent advances in the use of Wolbachia infected mosquitoes to limit dengue transmission. Key outcomes will include improved understanding of Wolbachia spread after release, development of techniques for regional spread, understanding the epidemiology of dengue transmission in Vietnam and preparing a panel of new Wolbachia:A. aegypti strain combinations for evaluation for implementation programs.
