New global vector control response 2017-2030 now online
The Global Vector Control Response 2017-2030 (GVCR), developed by the World Health Organization and TDR, is now available online. This provides a new strategy to strengthen vector control worldwide through increased capacity, improved surveillance, better coordination and integrated action across sectors and diseases.
The strategic approach proposed in GVCR was strongly supported by Member States at the World Health Assembly in May 2017 and Resolution WHA70.16 was adopted.
To support the roll-out of this new strategy, WHO has developed a number of related communications materials.
The GVCR is the result of a collaborative effort between the WHO Global Malaria Programme (GMP), the WHO Department of Control of Neglected Tropical Diseases (NTD), and the Special Programme for Research and Training in Tropical Diseases (TDR). It was developed through broad consultation with Member States and members of the global health community.
The full document will be translated into the 5 other UN languages (Arabic, Chinese, French, Russian, Spanish) in the coming weeks; language versions will be announced as they become available.
