Our research overview fact sheet
The Eliminate Dengue Program is developing a new approach to control mosquito-transmitted diseases.
We are using naturally occurring bacteria - called Wolbachia - that reduce the ability of mosquitoes to transmit harmful human viruses such as dengue, chikungunya, and Zika.
Following years of research into Wolbachia, our field trials have been met with widespread support from communities, governments and regulators around the world.
We are now transforming this groundbreaking approach to make it more affordable and effective for use in at-risk communities around the world.
Together, we can protect millions of people and reduce the global burden of mosquito-borne disease.
