SUBJECT: ENVIRONMENTAL MANAGEMENT FOR VECTOR CONTROL
The training aids on environmental management for vector control have been developed on the recommendation of the joint WHO/FAO/UNEP Panel of Experts on Environmental Management for Vector Control, by Mr A.R. Pozzi (formerly attached to the Institute for Land Improvement and Water Management, now a partner in NIEDERER & POZZI Environmental Consultancy Bureau), with support from the World Health Organization.
The WHO/FAO/UNEP Panel of Experts on Environmental Management for Vector Control (PEEM) was established in 1981 according to the Arrangements agreed upon by the three participating organizations.
The objective of PEEM is to create an institutional framework for effective interagency and intersectoral collaboration by bringing together various organizations and institutions involved in health, water and land development and the protection of the environment, with a view to promoting the extended use of environmental management measures for vector control within health programmes and development projects as health and environmental safeguards.
The training aids are in first instance intended for an audience of engineers, but may equally well be included in a training programme in the field of medical entomologists, to acquaint future vector control workers with the possibilities that engineering measures offer in an integrated approach towards vector-borne disease control.
Further information on the scope and contents of the training aids, how to use them, a table of contents of the accompanying text and the acknowledgements to those who kindly contributed the slides are presented in the preface of the text.
