ISNTD Bites 2012 will focus on three themes:

 

Session 1:   Solutions and emerging challenges in vector control: GM mosquitoes, veterinary treatment, integrated vector management, insecticide treated materials, insecticide resistance.

Session 2:   Governance and policy: challenges to successful vector management and towards strong local leadership.  

Session 3:   Impact of climate change on NTDs: shifting the boundaries? The role of climate in changes in prevalence of vectors and incidence of disease in non-endemic regions.

 

Subject to change.
