This presentation was designed by Mariam Otmani Del Barrio for the VERDAS consortium workshop held on Thursday 2 March at the University of Valle in Cali, Colombia.
The workshop was the Verdas Consortium presentation of its research results, a synthesis of knowledge on urban health interventions for the prevention and control of vector-borne diseases.

Environment and society have major influences on the transmission of these and on their vectors. VES Impact Goal: Communities have enhanced access to improved control interventions that ultimately contribute to decreased transmission and disease burden. VES Activities: Promote research - Build capacity - Collaborate with countries and institutions
  3. 3. 3TDR • MAKING A DIFFERENCE 3TDR • MAKING A DIFFERENCE HOW WE HELP COUNTRIES TO ACHIEVE DISEASES CONTROL ? Scientific Knowledge: Generation of scientific evidence relevant to the vector- borne diseases affecting poor and vulnerable populations Capacity Building: All projects include support for students and training for health professional, from community level to stakeholders. Policy Recommendations: Research results and scientific evidences have to be translated/implemented into feasible recommendations and policies. Facilitation of Collaboration and exchange through Networks: Vector-Borne Diseases are not limited by national frontiers and it is imperative that countries work together to achieve prevention, surveillance and control

The specific objectives include: 1. Update data on insecticide resistance and determine resistance mechanism(s) in the 3 target countries in order to identify appropriate study sites with the knock down and metabolic-based resistance mechanisms. 2. Monitor entomological, parasitological and socio- anthropological indices of LLINs/IRS efficacy in selected study sites with and without insecticide resistance 3. Compare the performances of LLINs and IRS on entomologic indices (vector longevity, MBR and EIR) and malaria prevalence in localities where Anopheles exhibit either the knock down resistance, metabolic-based resistance or both resistance mechanisms.
