The cost-effectiveness of controlling dengue in Indonesia using wMel Wolbachia released at scale: a modelling study | World Mosquito Program Skip to main content

Brady et al., 2020, BMC Medicine

Release of virus-blocking Wolbachia-infected mosquitoes is an emerging disease control strategy that aims to control dengue and other arboviral infections. Early entomological data and modelling analyses have suggested promising outcomes, and wMel Wolbachia releases are now ongoing or planned in 12 countries. To help inform government, donor, or philanthropist decisions on scale-up beyond single city releases, we assessed this technology's cost-effectiveness under alternative programmatic options.
