The Global Vector Hub is an open access, interactive resource. It has the capacity to transform vector research and vector control programmes, and to revolutionise our preparedness and ability to respond quickly and effectively to vector-borne disease outbreaks around the world.
More than half the world’s population is at risk of vector-borne diseases, yet no single, all-encompassing resource for researchers and health workers involved in vector-borne disease control exists.
The Global Vector Hub is a global first. It is an open access, interactive resource that not only has the capacity to transform vector research and vector control programmes, but revolutionise our preparedness and ability to respond quickly and effectively to vector-borne disease outbreaks, around the world.
For the first time, we aim to bring together researchers and health workers on the largest scale ever seen, cutting across several disciplines, diseases and vectors around the world. The movement towards this expansive and comprehensive approach to vector control cannot be achieved alone. We need you on board! The Global Vector Hub is designed for and owned by you – the vector community.
The Global Vector Hub has partnered with The Global Health Network to develop a ‘Resource Hub', which will build capacity and establish a solid community of practice for vector control interventions. Users can download bespoke training packages, Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs), educational materials and research tools for laboratory and field research, as well as operational control, specific to their vector of interest, geographic area and discipline.
