The WHO’s plans to bolster global vector control measures blend audacious goals with a sensible approach that could save lives and stimulate economic growth and development in many of the world’s poorest nations. Resulting from a consultation process with health ministries, researchers and public health experts, and jointly led by several WHO programmes, the Global Vector Control Response 2017–2030 (GVCR) sets out plans to assess how best to make use of existing vector control mechanisms and identify where improvements might be needed. Rather than simply tearing up current measures and starting from scratch, the GVCR aims to enhance them in key areas, principally improving human and infrastructural capacity where needed, and increasing basic and applied research.
