Control and Elimination of Vector Aedes. Preventing Zika Virus: Understanding and Controlling


9 March 2017

7:00 – 9:00 am


Introduction

Zika is an emerging virus transmitted mainly by mosquitoes of the genus Aedes, which breeds in water spots found everywhere due to the large demographic changes  that have resulted in a large disorganized expansion of urban areas, together with the increased use of non-biodegradable containers that accumulate water and an inefficient method of waste collection.
Those containers that accumulate water which act as potential breeding sites of the vector, increases the risk of occurrence of cases of dengue, chikungunya and zika; Hence the importance of taking measures to control and eliminate the vector, worldwide.

Objective

To orient in a timely manner the workers of the health system and community in general by means of the communication of experiences that allow to know precautionary measures to control the vector and to avoid the viral transmission to the human being and animals.
To perform in the field so that people can intervene focused on the elimitation of the egg of the mosquito.
Empower people to take action and help control and eliminate the vector.
