Vietnam | World Mosquito Program Skip to main content

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

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

Mosquito-borne diseases such as dengue are prevalent in Vietnam. The first outbreak of dengue was recorded in Vietnam in 1963. Between 1998 and 2010 more than 1 million cases were reported. Today, dengue is endemic throughout the southern region and central coast, and in densely populated hubs such as Hanoi.

Project sites

The first phase of releases of Wolbachia-carrying Aedes aegypti mosquitoes took place on Tri Nguyen Island, near Nha Trang City in Khanh Hoa Province, in 2013.

From March until June 2018, we carried out our first releases of Wolbachia-carrying mosquitoes on mainland Vietnam. The project is located in Vinh Luong, a community north of Nha Trang, the coastal capital of Khanh Hoa province.
