It is with great pleasure that ASSOCHAM cordially invites you to participate in the “National Dialogue on Protecting Communities: Vector Control in Action”, being hosted in association with BAYER. The event will be held on September 26, 2018 (Wednesday) from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM at The Leela Palace, New Delhi.
Every year, more than seven lakh people across the world, die of Vector-Borne Diseases (VBDs) such as Malaria, Dengue, Chikungunya, Japanese Encephalitis, Zika etc. These diseases impede economic development through direct medical costs and indirect costs such as loss of productivity and impact on tourism in addition to the enormous mortality. In India, Vector Borne Diseases pose a significant risk to most of the population due to rapid urbanization, increased movement of people and goods, environmental changes, and biological challenges. 
India has made considerable progress in managing these VBDs over the last few years, due to interventions for case management and Vector Control. However, there is still a long road ahead to achieve complete victory over these deadly VBDs. TheGovernment of India has targeted to eliminate Malaria from India by 2030 through the National Framework for Malaria Elimination. Integrated Vector Control, new technologies, sound environmental management practices along with community education & participation would play a pivotal role in managing and eliminating VBDs.
The National Dialogue on Protecting Communities: Vector Control in Action will bring together key stakeholders (National programme managers, innovators, technical experts, policy‚Äźmakers, Research, Global agencies, Innovation institutions, and funding agencies) to initiate a dialogue on Public Health with a focus on Vector Control, smart cities and public-private partnerships.
Kindly go through the enclosed brochure and various partnership opportunities available to support this cause which is in the best of interest of our public health.
