    Understanding and documenting the presence and characteristics of local mosquito populations in Aedes endemic regions is crucial for the development of targeted and meaningful vector control (VC) interventions. Breeding habitats and behaviours vary according to different Anopheles vectors, and can also be affected by changing epidemiological, ecological, and structural features of any given region. Systematically collecting entomological surveillance data can assist local health staff to identify reasons for the success and failure of current VC strategies, help with outbreak response predication and planning, and support the rationale for research/investment in alternative approaches to reduce the vectorial breeding capacity/vector populations within a given area.

    This section provides key information and guidance to enable practitioners working in Aedes vector control to successfully design, manage, and monitor related entomological surveillance activities and strategies. This includes global, regional, and country specific toolkits and materials developed by both National Disease Control Programmes and partner organisations from across the region, with a focus on integrated vector management approaches to provide practitioners with practical tools for designing, planning, and combining vector control activities.

    While NMCP personnel at central level tend to carry out more sophisticated procedures for mosquito identification, it is the responsibility of sub-national staff to carry out basic entomological surveillance in foci area, including morphological identification and basic bioassays for insecticide susceptibility testing. This section provides guidance on carrying out these activities efficiently, including sampling strategies for collecting and preserving mosquito specimens and  insectary standard operating procedures.
