    Project Description

    This project will contribute directly to the significant reduction of locally transmitted cases of dengue fever, chikungunya and Zika virus. The proposed program will release mosquitoes that carry Wolbachia – naturally occurring bacteria that, when present in the Aedes aegypti mosquito, reduce the mosquito’s ability to transmit dengue and other similar viruses between people.
