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

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

In 2023, the World Mosquito Program began work in both Denpasar and Buleleng, in Bali, to combat the growing threat of mosquito-borne diseases. The World Mosquito Program (WMP) and the Balinese Government, with the support of the Australian Government and the Gillespie Family Foundation, have joined forces to “dengue-proof” Bali by using the WMP's Wolbachia technology. For decades, dengue has been taking its toll on Bali’s people, health system and economy. In 2020, Bali, of all Indonesian provinces, had the highest dengue incidence with some 270 cases per 100,000 people.
