About us

The World Mosquito Program is a not-for-profit initiative that works to protect the global community from mosquito-borne diseases such as Zika, dengue, chikungunya and yellow fever.

An innovation of the World Mosquito Program, our Wolbachia method is a safe, natural and effective way to combat the threat of mosquito-borne diseases, such as Zika, dengue, chikungunya and yellow fever.

Since the establishment of our first project site in northern Australia in 2011, the WMP has undergone significant expansion from a small research project to become an international not-for-profit initiative operating in 12 countries. 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. These hubs support projects in their respective regions and contribute to core global operations.

The World Mosquito Program is committed to strengthening the capacity of local communities around the world to reduce the threat of mosquito-borne diseases. Through collaboration and innovation, our global approach can help to protect local communities from mosquito-borne diseases.
