AbstractIntegrated vector management [IVM] is an acknowledged strategy of choice for the prevention and control of vector-borne diseases. The paper describes and documents the progress countries of the World Health Organization [WHO] Eastern Mediterranean Region have made in endorsing and translating the strategy into action at the national level. These include increased political commitment; strengthened intersectoral coordination and partnership; strengthened capacity in entomology and vector control; and scaling up of vector control interventions through universal access. These efforts, however, are compromised by inappropriate institutional arrangements in some countries; weak national capacities to address management of pesticides; development and spread of vector resistance to insecticides, including to pyrethroids; and the expansion of emerging and re-emerging vector-borne diseases. With WHO leadership and support from partners, countries continue to address these challenges head-on

Resistance of vectors and reservoirs of disease to pesticides : tenth report of the WHO Expert Committee on Vector Biology and Control [meeting held in Geneva from 5 to 11 November 1985] WHO Expert Committee on Vector Biology and Control; World Health Organization (1986)An expert report on the incidence and spread of vector resistance to pesticides, the implications for control programmes, and the research required to develop appropriate countermeasures. To illustrate the extent of the problem, the book outlines the species of medically important vectors and intermediate hosts known to exhibit resistance to one or more pesticides. The impact of pesticide resistance on control programmes is assessed in the second section, which makes a distinction between the operational implications of resistance and those of ...
