|Title:||Integrated vector management: strategic framework for the Eastern Mediterranean Region 2004-2010|
|Authors:||World Health Organization, Regional Office for the Eastern Mediterranean|
|Abstract:||Vector-borne diseases are a significant cause of morbidity and mortality in the WHO Eastern Mediterranean Region. Well planned and coordinated vector control interventions contribute significantly to reduction of the incidence of vector-borne diseases. Effective vector control methods exist but their implementation as part of integrated disease management is limited. The potential to use one or several of these interventions through multi-sectoral collaboration to address more than one vector-borne disease exists and should be promoted. This regional strategic framework provides long-range vision and guidance for planning and undertaking sustainable and cost-effective vector control activities in the Eastern Mediterranean Region|
