Vector-borne diseases such as dengue, Zika, chikungunya, malaria, and leishmaniasis, among others, have a great impact on public health. This makes it necessary to step up entomological surveillance to guide prevention and control activities. The document will help countries to identify their areas of need and determine how the entomology network can be strengthened, especially in the context of a decentralized health system.
