Tools for risk management and anticipation

Foreword

Texte intégral

1Risk analysis is ideally relevant for application to vector control. The concept calls for the cooperation of a multitude of disciplines, like vector control where such a great diversity of parameters is at play (including entomological, epidemiological and human ones). Although standardized data collection and record keeping methods are both possible and necessary, risk assessment has to take specific situations into account, whether at the data interpretation or modelling stage. Section 1 reports on the different methods implemented to achieve this.

2The goal of better risk anticipation capacity is being furthered by regional and international cooperation schemes, some already existing, others currently being set up (“Regional and international cooperation”). It would be worthwhile to multiply such initiatives to create such benefits as mutualization of human and material resources. Apart from these, there remain two major tools that could give the means for anticipating and, if possible, avoiding future vector-borne disease epidemics: training (“From initial training to career-long training”) and, of course, research (“Research: a key to successful vector control”). A great number of unknowns persist concerning the functioning of vectors and their behaviour, especially in the organisms’ response to ongoing global changes (in climate, the environment and societies).
