On behalf of our president Jan Lundström we wish to invite you to the EMCA WORKSHOP which will take place in Speyer, Germany, from 5th to 6th March 2018.
The leading title of this workshop in Speyer “INTEGRATED MOSQUITO MANAGEMENT TO PROTECT EUROPEAN CITIZENS” has been chosen by the EMCA Board since the threat by mosquito borne infectious diseases, demonstrated for example by the recent outbreak of Chikungunya in Rome becomes more and more reality.
The only way to prevent larger epidemics is prevention by mosquito management. To achieve this goal, the network among state authorities, manufacturers of mosquito control agents, entomologists on the front and in research as well as physicians needs strengthening.
