Interpretive Summary: More than 15 leading scientists in the fields of mosquito surveillance and control of mosquito-borne diseases from eleven countries were invited to give presentations at the 2nd International Forum for Surveillance and Control of Mosquitoes and Mosquito-borne Diseases in Beijing China in May , 2011. The theme of the Forum was “Impact of Global Climate Change and Urbanization on Mosquito-borne Diseases” and presentations included impacts of global climate changes and urbanization on diseases, vector biology and toxicology, and control /management of projects.
The Entomological Society of China (ESC) and Beijing Institute of Microbiology and Epidemiology (BIME) hosted the 2nd International Forum for Surveillance and Control of Mosquitoes and Mosquito-borne Diseases in Beijing, China, May 23-27, 2011. The theme of the Forum was “Impact of global climate change and urbanization on mosquito-borne diseases.” The meeting provided an opportunity to discuss mosquito-borne disease status and future challenges caused by global warming and urbanization in China and elsewhere. Other objectives were to share information about research and management of vector mosquitoes and mosquito-borne diseases, to promote new techniques and methods for surveillance and control of mosquitoes and mosquito-borne diseases, and to identify possible areas of worldwide collaboration for research and development of new methods and techniques for surveillance and control of mosquitoes and mosquito-borne diseases. The meeting was scheduled to permit time for questions and an ample exchange of information.
