Abstract: The purpose of the meeting was to discuss Anopheles spp., their role as malaria vectors, and their distribution in various eco-epidemiological zones of the WHO European Region. Also discussed were the susceptibility of mosquitos to insecticides and technologies for vector control, including biological methods. Entomologists and geneticists contributed knowledge on issues such as taxonomy, biology, ecology and the genetics of malaria vectors. The meeting recommended that WHO continue to support the expansion of the knowledge base and skills in medical entomology and support entomological research, including the resistance of malaria vectors to insecticides.
