View the latest updates from the World Mosquito Program in Cali.

The World Mosquito Program is working in Cali to protect communities from mosquito-borne diseases like dengue, Zika, chikungunya and yellow fever.

After conducting laboratory studies to examine the impact of Wolbachia on dengue, Zika and chikungunya viruses in Colombia, and engaging with the community to explain our Wolbachia method and gain their consent, we will be releasing Wolbachia-carrying mosquitoes across Cali in 2019.
