Data and GIS Lead

Wolbachia Method Project in Southern Vietnam (WMP-SVN) Data and GIS Lead The World Mosquito Program (WMP) is a global not-for-profit initiative that works to protect the global community from mosquito-borne diseases such as dengue, Zika, chikungunya, and yellow fever. Known until recently as the Eliminate Dengue Program, the WMP uses naturally occurring bacteria called Wolbachia to reduce the ability of mosquitoes to transmit these viruses. Accumulating evidence is supportive of very large impact on disease transmission and large clinical trials and demonstration projects are currently underway. Following many years of laboratory research and field trials with promising results, the WMP is now operating in 12 countries worldwide and has widespread support from communities, governments and regulators. Currently the WMP is running projects in the Asia region in Vietnam, Indonesia, India, and Sri Lanka with expectations to initiate new projects in additional countries in the region. Funding for WMP activities is received through major grants from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, The Wellcome Trust, the Australian Government’s, the US government through USAID, the Gillespie Family Foundation and other philanthropic supporters, as well as governments in various deployment countries. More information about the WMP can be obtained from www.worldmosquitoprogram.org.

Action on Poverty is an international aid organisation with a network of partners around the world working together to break the poverty cycle.
