In 2019, the Ministry of Health of Brazil announced their support to expand the World Mosquito Program implementation across the country.
Three cities were selected, based on epidemiological and logistical data and from being in different environmental contexts in the country. The three cities are Belo Horizonte, Campo Grande and Petrolina.
In 2020, the World Mosquito Program began work to expand its operations to Belo Horizonte, capital of the State of Minas Gerais and the sixth largest city in the country.
We’ve been working with communities in Brazil since 2012 to help prevent mosquito-borne diseases. There are now four active project sites across the country.
