Action on Poverty (AOP) is an international aid organisation with partners around the world working together to break the cycle of entrenched poverty. From building sustainable livelihoods to fostering public health, AOP has been working with local partners in Vietnam for 30 years.
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. The WMP uses naturally occurring bacteria called Wolbachia to reduce the ability of mosquitoes to transmit these viruses. Accumulating evidence is supportive of very large impact on disease transmission and large clinical trials and demonstration projects are currently underway.
Following many years of laboratory research and field trials with promising results, the WMP has expanded to 12 countries worldwide and has widespread support from communities, governments and regulators. The World Mosquito Program has two regional hubs – our Asia hub in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, and Oceania hub, based at Monash University in Melbourne, Australia. As well as supporting projects in Vietnam, Sri Lanka, India and Indonesia, our Asia hub contributes to core global operations.
With support from Action on Poverty (AOP), the WMP established its Asia hub and projects in Vietnam.
