Our Values are Field-tested and Client-trusted
When MosquitoZone International operates a program at a worksite or in a community, we work under a set of operational values that ensure that we serve our clients' needs and smooth the way with the community and key stakeholders that are so critical to our clients' success:
Control Zone Accountability
We are accountable for achieving time-delineated epidemiological objectives in Control Zones with well-defined boundaries and characteristics.
Leadership, Reporting and Coordination
We serve you and we make your life easier not harder when it comes to interfacing with your internal organizations, your other vendors, and important third-party relationships (i.e., government officials, other employers, etc.) that affect your success.
We prefer to use fewer professional entomologists in the field rather than more, because it's not easy to find qualified, experienced medical entomologists to work in developing countries. It is relatively easy to find research entomologists for projects, but our clients are not funding research. In most situations, we'll furnish foremen or crew chiefs to supervise the local workforce that we train and support—these can be a combination of ex-pats, regionally-sourced technicians, or local people, depending on availability. Building a local workforce is essential to having a sustainable program and we consider it one of our field entomologists' number-one jobs to train a reliable and sustainable workforce.
We want to build capacity for procurement with you and/or with the community so that equipment, facilities, supplies and vehicles (and the procurement infrastructure to obtain them) belong to you or to the community when we leave.
No occupational health or public health program can succeed without the cooperation and buy-in of the people it serves. We work with key influencers, mass media, and local authorities to build community participation, ownership and leadership in the planning and implementation of the program.
Continuous Quality Improvement
We use entomological, epidemiological and environmental vigilance in order to detect and rapidly respond to any changes, hot-spots or quality problems before they can threaten the achievement of the epidemiological objectives for each Control Zone.
Because your reputation is on the line, we are transparent with you about program data, operational practices, decision-making, and financial flow.
