Sandra Gewehr, president of the EMCA (European Mosquito Control Association) was invited by the Director of the Anastasia Mosquito Control District (AMCD, Florida, USA), Dr. Rui-De Xue, who is also the president of the AMCA (American Mosquito Control Association), to the 19th Annual arbovirus surveillance and mosquito control workshop of the AMCD.

At the initiative of Dr. Florence Fouque of the Special Programme for Research and Training in Tropical Diseases of the World Health Organization (TDR/WHO), responsible WHO Officer for the development of WHO-EMCA guidelines for mosquito control, the presidents of AMCA and EMCA agreed upon signing a bilateral MoU for the scientific and educational cooperation of the two organizations.
