The PacMOSSI project is a regional partnership between Pacific Island countries and 12 international institutions working to combat mosquito-borne diseases throughout the Pacific. It comprises a series of initiatives jointly coordinated by James Cook University, the World Health Organization, and the Pacific Community, with funding from the Australian and French governments.
With support from the Australian Government Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) and the Agence Francaise de Developpement (AFD), we are working on a collaborative project to increase capacity to combat mosquito-borne diseases in Pacific Island Countries and areas.
- Our joint initiatives aim to mitigate mosquito-borne diseases threats across PICs through improved vector surveillance and control.
- Our team consists of credible and well-respected individuals and organisations backed by a consortium of partners with expertise in mosquito-borne disease control.
- We focus on preventing current and emerging arboviral and parasitic diseases transmitted by mosquitoes in PICs such as dengue, chikungunya, Zika virus disease & malaria.
- We collectively aim to provide useful, practical information and support to PICs that align with WHO recommendations and guided by PIC governments.
