Summary "Integrated vector management (IVM) is a rational decision-making process to optimize the use of resources for vector control. The aim of the IVM approach is to contribute to achievement of the global targets for the vector-borne disease control, by making vector control more efficient, cost effective, ecologically sound and sustainable. The intention of the handbook is to provide to the managers of vector-borne disease control programmes, other officials in health and other sectors involved in vector-borne disease control with necessary guidance and an operational framework for the implementation of IVM"--Back cover
