Integrated Vector Management
Promoting the Scaling up Integrated Vector Management (IVM) in Nigeria
Integrated Vector Management (IVM) as recommended by WHO/AFRO is the main vector control strategy in Nigeria. The concept of Integrated Vector Management (IVM) is built on selected vector control strategies and it involves the targeted use of different vector control methods alone or in combination to prevent or reduce vector populations and human- vector contact cost-effectively and in a sustainable manner. This is certainly in consonance with the RBM multiple vector control strategies. In carrying out IVM, efforts are made to apply environmentally sound interventions.
