The value of Insecticide Resistance Management

Watch David McGuire and Andrew Saibu explain the value of Insecticide Resistance Management.
In this video, David McGuire and Andrew Saibu explain the value of insecticide-based vector control and Insecticide Resistance Management.

Insecticide-based vector control has a huge impact on public health, and the last twenty years have seen great progress in malaria reduction through the use of Long-Lasting Insecticide-Treated Nets and Indoor Residual Spraying. However, mosquitoes are becoming resistant to insecticide-based control interventions.

David McGuire and Andrew Saibu discuss the importance of developing new insecticides and describe real-world examples of projects in the field.
