Pioneering UN Backed, Citizen Led Alliance against Mosquito Borne Diseases Joins Global Fight to Save 2.7 Million Lives Every Year

Initiative Empowers National Networks, Stakeholders and Governments to Generate and Access Real-time Data and Tools through UN Electronic Platform ‘Environment Live”

The press release has been translated into the following languages:

Please, help us by sharing in your networks.

In Global Mosquito Alert, key citizen science mosquito monitoring initiatives agreed to work together to enable members of the public to join scientists to understand the spread of mosquito species capable of carrying these critical diseases and to provide information to help health professional and citizens to manage the associated risks.

The group agreed to share current approaches to monitor breeding sites, and to measure the nuisance value of the citizen mosquito experience to support health risk management.  It was also agreed to pool knowledge and experience on citizen science programmes to monitor biodiversity of mosquito species using the latest DNA identification techniques.

The vision of Global Mosquito Alert is:

“A shared, coordinated platform to leverage citizen science for the global surveillance and control of disease-carrying mosquitos, including the species that bear: Yellow fever, Chikungunya, dengue, Zika, malaria, and West Nile virus. 

Global Mosquito Alert will be an open, common e-infrastructure, platform and protocol that may be augmented with modular components and implemented on a range of scales to meet local and global research and management needs.”
