Action Plan: National Program 104 - Veterinary, Medical, and Urban Entomology 2014-2019
Goal: The mission of National Program 104 (NP 104), Veterinary, Medical, and Urban Entomology, is to improve human and food-animal well-being through development of effective and safe pest control methods. The emphasis of the program is on agriculture, with the goal of reducing the 12% loss experienced by American livestock production caused by insects and ticks. Research with agricultural benefit has implications for human health, both directly by reducing the risk of zoonotic diseases, and indirectly by developing methods that can be used to combat vectors of human pathogens.
