In 2020, the World Mosquito Program expanded its actions to Campo Grande, capital of the State of Mato Grosso do Sul.
The implementation of the Wolbachia Method in Campo Grande is carried out in partnership with the Municipality of Campo Grande and the government of the State of Mato Grosso do Sul, with funding from the Ministry of Health.
A Community Reference Group meets monthly to track our progress in the city. Members of the group include representatives of the Federal University of Mato Grosso do Sul, Dom Bosco Catholic University, Secretary of Health, Mario Dilson Scouts Group, Lions Club, São Roque Gonzalez Community Association, Pentecostal Church Jesus in Action, Rotary Club, Oswaldo Cruz Foundation, Fire Department and Association of Residents Union.
We’ve been working with communities in Brazil since 2012 to help prevent mosquito-borne diseases. See our progress and project locations here.
