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 and chikungunya. The WMP is led from Monash University in Melbourne, Australia.

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 and chikungunya.

Since the establishment of our first project site in Northern Australia in 2011, EDP 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 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.
