Understanding and documenting the presence and characteristics of local mosquito populations in malaria 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 NMCP 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 Anopheles 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 Malaria Programmes and partner organisations from across the region, and beyond.
