Protecting Worksites with Integrated Vector Control
Each MosquitoZone integrated vector control program is custom-designed using our Nine Elements™ model. Step 1 is to define the precise dimensions of the Control Zone (the inside-the-fence safe zone) where workers live and work. Then MosquitoZone builds an attribute list for each Control Zone, taking into account a multitude of factors that influence the disease-vector threat, including the proximity of mosquito breeding sites and local villages, predominant wind patterns, and even political issues.
Together, we'll address
The precise geographic borders and attributes of your project's control zone(s). This includes office, work, food, living and recreational areas, and, if you wish, surrounding communities.
All vector-borne threats, such as malaria, dengue, filariasis, leishmaniasis, and more.
Our team's seamless integration into your operations.
Benchmarking, tracking and reporting metrics, including prevention efforts, trending statistics and root causes.
How to meet strategic capacity-building objectives.
Control Zones define the area where MosquitoZone will provide services, but just as important, Control Zones help us to define the factors that influence the types of surveillance and interventions that will be conducted on site. For example, if a Control Zone borders a sensitive waterway, we will use certain insecticides that are safe for water.
MosquitoZone International will work with you to define the boundaries of each Control Zone at your project site. Control Zones can be camp areas, drilling sites, pipelines, ports/terminals, and more. In each Control Zone we kill the adult mosquitoes, the larval mosquitoes, and eliminate breeding sites that can be eliminated. If your requirements include other pest control (such as rodents or snakes), food or water safety programs, or camp hygiene and sanitation, we will add those activities to each Control Zone. We monitor our Control Zones with aggressive surveillance, and that surveillance informs our continuous programmatic adjustments.
Your objectives determine the nature and scope of our interventions. Some clients with a workforce of ex-pats and business travelers might set an objective of zero malaria cases. Other clients whose workforce includes local people with some malaria immunity might set an objective of no severe malaria or dramatically reduced case incidence. We will design a program to achieve your specific objectives.
MosquitoZone International's Nine Elements model guides our implementation of successful integrated vector control in the Control Zones defined by our clients. The elements are
- Leadership and coordination
- Field personnel
- Vehicles, facilities, supplies and equipment
- Aggressive surveillance
- Control interventions
- Barriers and repellents
- Education and training
- Quality control, safety and environmental protection
- Monitoring and evaluation
