The Global vector control response 2017-2030 (GVCR) provides a new strategy to strengthen vector control worldwide through increased capacity, improved surveillance, better coordination and integrated action across sectors and diseases.

One of the priority activities outlined in the GVCR is for countries to conduct or update their vector control needs assessment. This information can then be utilized to develop or update countries’ vector control strategies and to plan necessary activities.

This Framework for a National Vector Control Needs Assessment sets the standards for baseline assessment and progress tracking in line with the goals, targets, milestones and priorities of the GVCR.
