Novel interventions and enabling technologies for insect-borne disease prevention

As we attempt to eliminate a number of insect borne diseases progress is hampered by the lack of effective interventions, poor surveillance and inadequate implementation, often driven by a lack of capacity to deliver the programmes in the disease endemic countries. Product development partnerships, underpinned by public and philanthropic funding have stimulated a raft of new products that are now starting to come onto the market and will revolutionise our ability to control and prevent a number of diseases if properly implemented. Enabling technologies to facilitate implementation, such as IT systems, serious games and diagnostic platforms are also being rolled out to strengthen Capacity and improve surveillance. The beneficial impact of these technologies on a number of operational programmes will be described.
