Vector borne diseases are a significant healthcare burden to many countries in the Asia Pacific Region. However, vector control has been static for many years or just remained in the background. This conference aims at providing a platform for researchers in the region to share their cutting edge findings and new proactive tools to combat vectors involved in vector borne diseases. Most countries in the region are on track to eliminate malaria but zoonotic malaria remains a challenge. New vector control strategies will be deliberated as current tools are not effective in the control of zoonotic vectors. As a whole this conference will discuss new paradigm changes for the control of vectors in the coming years.
