Public Health Team

The Public Health Team was formed in 2006 to continue the work initiated by the previous IRAC Vector Team and has the extended remit covering hygiene pests as well as vectors.  Most of the efforts have focused on forming links with key groups working in the vector control area (WHO, Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation BMGF and Innovative Vector Control Consortium IVCC). A key IRAC publication “Prevention and Management of Insecticide Resistance in Vectors and Pests of Public Health Importance” was first published with inputs from these groups in 2007 and an updated second edition was published in 2010. A mini-version of this comprehensive booklet was published in 2011.
