AbstractA two-week training programme on integrated vector management (IVM), conducted at the Vector Control Research Centre (WHO-CC), Puducherry, from 19 to 31 October 2011, was attended by 22 participants from 10 Member countries. IVM is one of the key elements of the Asia-Pacific dengue as well as the malaria control strategy. This Regional training aimed to strengthen country capacity, and improve understanding of the planning process, and monitoring and evaluation for implementing and scaling up of IVM. This training course was designed for public health personnel who are actively involved in the management and decision-making process related to vector-borne disease (VBD) control. The principal objectives of the training were for the participants to gain adequate knowledge and skills to be able to identify/define the VBD problem, develop a step-by-step IVM programme, and to identify policy settings and intersectoral collaboration opportunities in the development of the action plan.
