    Title: Vector Control for Environmental Health Professionals - VCEHP Author: CDC/DEHSP/NCEH/WFEHSB Subject: VCEHP Fact Sheet Keywords: VCEHP, Vector Control for Environmental Health Professionals, Zika virus, Zika, mosquitoes, Aedes aegypti mosquito, Vector-Borne Diseases, IPM, Mosquito Biology, toxicology of pesticides, risk communication, rodent management, bed bug biology and control.   Malaria continues to be an important vector-borne disease and a leading cause of morbidity and mortality in Africa South of Sahara [].The disease is estimated to be responsible for – million clinical attacks globally and a minimum of between 1–2 million deaths annually [].It is a major threat to socio-economic development in the world and is also one of the major disease .

      Papers p The high profile of environmental issues has awakened us to the ecological dangers of global warming, pollution, destruction of tropical rainforests, overpopulation, and damming of rivers. The adverse health effects of these environmental changes are often cited but have not been as well documented. In this issue Ghebreyesus et al report a sevenfold increase in the . Monitoring Monitor environmental and health status to identify and solve community environmental public health problems. Monitoring is referred to as disease surveillance and it is vital for reportable infectious diseases. It is essential to monitor the health of populations to identify trends in vector-borne disease, allowing for the assessment of needed health resources.

    Vector control is a cornerstone in malaria control, owing to the lack of reliable vaccines, the emergence of drug resistance, and unaffordable potent antimalarials. In the recent past, a few countries have achieved malaria elimination by employing existing front-line vector control interventions and active case management. Finally, we evaluate the effect of different vector control interventions in rice fields, including environmental measures (i.e. alternate wet and dry irrigation (AWDI)), and biological control.

• manual labour in the fields promotes man/vector contact (especially flooded rice). Environmental management measures.

Environmental management for vector control, such as alternative wetting and drying of rice fields (also known as intermittent irrigation), can substantially reduce vector breeding while saving water, increasing rice yields, and reducing methane emission.

However, an effective irrigation requires well-organized educational programs, sufficient. community to integrate vector-borne disease control into the primary health care system of riceland agroecosystems.

Through development of new tools and resources, research, policy statements, Stories from the Field, and more, NACCHO helps local health departments and local vector control programs increase their capacity to address existing and emerging issues related to vector control and integrated pest management.

PEEM, the joint WHO/FAO/UNEP/UNCHS Panel of Experts on Environmental Management for Vector Control, published a technical guidelines series in which the following volumes are already in English, French and Spanish: Guidelines for the incorporation of health safeguards into irrigation projects (Tiffen, ), Guidelines for forecasting vector.

the preparation of staff manuals for use in vector control programmes and water resource development projects.

Some limitations in the scope of the Manual were unavoidable because of the lack of any comprehensive experience of the application of environmental management measures to control mosquito vectors of disease. Environmental Management offers research and opinions on use and conservation of natural resources, protection of habitats and control of hazards, spanning the field of environmental management without regard to traditional disciplinary boundaries.

Vector control is any method to limit or eradicate the mammals, birds, insects or other arthropods (here collectively called "vectors") which transmit disease most frequent type of vector control is mosquito control using a variety of strategies.

Several of. IPVM could be targeted to address rural poverty, awareness or pesticide over-use, even in areas where environmental management is not an option.

Rice as starting point. Synergistic relationships between rice cultivation and vector management have long been known, which makes wetland rice a promising starting point for an integrated strategy.

Environmental management. Environmental management seeks to change the environment in order to prevent or minimize vector propagation and human contact with the vector-pathogen by destroying, altering, removing or recycling non-essential containers that provide larval habitats.

Such actions should be the mainstay of dengue vector control. research on rice ecosystem management for human disease-vector control to international agricultural research centers.

At an international workshop on ‘Health and Irrigation’ in Copenhagen inAWDI for vector control was discussed as a potential field of research for the International Water Management Institute (IWMI) (Birley ).
