India | World Mosquito Program Skip to main content

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

The World Mosquito Program in India is part of a global, not-for-profit initiative that’s working to protect local communities from mosquito-borne diseases.

The World Mosquito Program is working in partnership with the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) to investigate the use of self-sustaining Wolbachia bacteria to combat dengue and other mosquito-borne diseases in India. 

Recurring outbreaks of dengue represent a significant burden for communities and local health systems in the country and highlight the need for affordable, long-term solutions.
