Mosquito-borne disease prevention

Generating evidence for an innovative and complementary vector control tool

The project, Advancing Evidence for the Global Implementation of Spatial Repellents (AEGIS) will build on decades of research and generate further evidence about an innovative new tool, spatial repellents, to help prevent vector-borne diseases like malaria and dengue. The AEGIS project is made possible thanks to Unitaid’s funding and support.
