Vector control

Primarily because of climate change and the globalisation of trade, vector-borne diseases (malaria, dengue, etc.) are increasingly reappearing.  In the absence of a vaccine and treatment against these diseases, curbing their insect vectors, especially through the use of insecticides, remains the primary means of control.  To be effective and sustainable, control of these insects must be based on the alternate use of active substances with different modes of action, in order to limit the development in these insect vectors of resistance to insecticides.  In this context and to ensure that public vector control operators have a wide range of products at their disposal whose effectiveness and risks have been assessed, the Agency has produced a series of reports.
