Further to the recent discovery in Malta of the Asian Tiger mosquito Aedes albopictus and to the setting up of a Working Group on Vector Borne Diseases, the IES and the Infectious Diseases Control Unit (IDCU) of the Health Division held a technical briefing session on the potential problems presented by this mosquito.

The half-day session was attended by Health Inspectors working in various areas of Malta and Gozo, and took place on campus on the 30th August. The objectives of this session were to discuss the mosquito’s behaviour and ecology, to present the proposed monitoring programme and to examine possible measures for the mosquito’s control. The programme was delivered by IES and IDCU staff members from within the Working Group.
