Emergency Vector Control Using Chemicals
A handbook for relief workers
Christophe Lacarin and Bob Reed
The control of vectors that transmit diseases in emergen- cies is critical to the prevention of epidemics. This handbook describes how such vectors can be identified and controlled using chemicals. Aimed at non-specialists such as logisticians, engineers and health workers, it provides advice on identify- ing the responsible vector, selecting the appropriate control chemical and the means of application, together with advice on planning an implementation programme.
