Venue: Nadi, Fiji
The PacMOSSI annual meeting will showcase the latest work of Pacific Island Countries and Areas (PICs) in mosquito surveillance and control – and raise awareness of the need to enhance preparedness for future mosquito-borne disease outbreaks. The meeting objectives will be to:
1) review the current status of mosquito surveillance and control in PICs,
2) discuss regional priorities for strengthening surveillance and control of mosquito-borne diseases, and
3) provide an update on PacMOSSI opportunities to strengthen mosquito surveillance and control.
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 and the European Union.
