LINK TO DETAILED PROGRAMME

 

Session 1 

Vectors, reservoirs and zoonoses: an NTD perspective

 

Session 2 

Human, livestock and vector data: integrated surveillance for global health  

 

Session 3 

Olfaction in vector-host interaction: repellents & traps

 

Session 4 

Technology / solutions focus for vector-control & global health

 

 

Salient themes for this year's conference include:

 

Animal Health & Veterinary Approaches (including treatment of bovine populations in HAT and impact to human disease burden, vaccines, netting, surveillance etc.)

 

Repellents (issues covering the hard science - genetic mechanisms of olfactory pathways that can be exploited, spatial repellents, trap technology, bringing repellents into a fully integrated vector control programme etc.)

 

Surveillance identifying gaps in disease, vector and policy coverage and addressing the technologies available. Enhanced collaboration between global health and veterinary structures.

 

Novel Insecticides / Larvicides (what are the novel mechanisms of action in research, targets, novel technologies that can assist this R&D, screening, modelling, chemistry libraries etc.)

 

Netting (synergies between Malaria and Lymphatic Filariasis vector control, new textiles that can incorporate new wave of polymer enhanced insecticides, in-field distribution issues how to overcome these by bringing together NGOs and distribution networks through education and supply chain efficiencies)

 

Water management for vector-control (what are some of the latest concepts and products assisting in treating water for mosquito- or other vector control; how can we best impact community behaviour and uptake)
