Our goal is to protect Cali communities from diseases transmitted by the Aedes aegypti mosquito, such as dengue, Zika, chikungunya, and yellow fever. To date, WMP has completed three phases of implementation, covering various areas of the city. These areas were carefully selected based on disease impact indicators provided by the city's Department of Public Health
Globally, WMP has protected more than 11 million people on three continents where Wolbachia mosquitoes have been released. In Cali alone, we've benefited 1,261,000 people, approximately half the population, across three phases. We've also achieved community acceptance rates between 90 and 97%.
We've worked collaboratively with communities and local authorities, including community reference groups, community action boards, local administration boards, environmental and planning committees, older adults, women's groups, LGTBIQ+ groups, public and private educational institutions, health entities, and the Mayor's Office of Santiago de Cali.
