Mô tả công việc


  • The World Mosquito Program (WMP) is a not-for-profit initiative that works to protect the global community from mosquito-borne diseases such as dengue, Zika and chikungunya.

Accumulating evidence is supportive of very large impact on disease transmission and large clinical trials and demonstration projects are currently underway.
