Vanuatu | World Mosquito Program Skip to main content

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

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

Vanuatu has a long history of mosquito-borne diseases such as dengue. Large dengue outbreaks are frequent, including thousands of suspected cases in 2016 and 2017.
