All members are accepting that their procedures are closely related to next basic approaches of Integrated Mosquito Management Programs (IMMP) which are strongly supported by EMCA:

  • A broad range of mosquito control strategies should be promoted, including physical, biological, environmental, educational and chemical methods.
  • The selection and timing of a method or combination of methods should be based on entomological and ecological surveillance and monitoring data.
  • The cost-effectiveness of the interventions in achievement the expected outcomes, specially in terms of environmental protection, should be always a priority criterion to make mosquito control decisions. In this context, if there is an alternative with good cost-effectiveness balance, it is recommended that chemicals are used as methods of last resort.
