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.
