Resources, projects and networks submitted by the action participants:
- InfraVec2 Network Links: A useful list of links to vector and vector-borne disease network links.
- The European Mosquito Control Association (EMCA) gathers professionals and experts from Europe and beyond with the aim of strengthening cooperation in the technical and operational aspects of mosquito control.
TIGER (Tri-national Initiative Group of Entomology in Upper Rhine valley) target="_blank"is an EU-funded INTERREG-V project, which serves to support the institutions responsible for the health risks in connection with the Asian tiger mosquito in the Upper Rhine Valley (Germany-France-Switzerland). The focus is on providing competent scientific and technical support to public authorities. This makes it easier to assess and manage the risks associated with invasive mosquitoes.
The Worldwide Insecticide resistance Network - proposes to bring together 19 internationally recognized institutions in vector research, providing a unique framework for tracking insecticide resistance in mosquito vectors of arboviruses around the world.
ZikaAlliance - Is a multinational and multi-disciplinary research consortium comprised of 54 partners worldwide and coordinated by Inserm, the French National Institute of Health and Medical Research. ZIKAlliance is funded by the European Union's Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Programme. The project will investigate clinical, fundamental, environmental and social aspects of ZIKV infection.

WHO Global vector control response 2017–2030 The Global vector control response 2017–2030 (GVCR) provides a new strategy to strengthen vector control worldwide through increased capacity, improved surveillance, better coordination and integrated action across sectors and diseases. In May 2017, the World Health Assembly adopted resolution WHA 70.16, which calls on Member States to develop or adapt national vector control strategies and operational plans to align with this strategy.
WHO Vector Control Advisory Group Guidance and Recommendations Includes Efficacy-testing of traps for control of aedes spp. Mosquito vectors; How to design vector control efficacy trials; Data requirements and methods to support the evaluation of new vector control products
