*Please note the time difference between your location and the venue.*

For over a century --and with intensity in recent years-- epidemic diseases transmitted by the Aedes aegypti mosquito, such as yellow fever, Dengue and Zika, have been dramatic and recurrent events in Brazil and much of Latin America. These diseases have revealed the shortcomings of sanitary infrastructures, informed sound public health responses and stimulated innovative medical research. In order to understand the complexity of mosquito control it is necessary to contrast past and contemporary processes, achievements and challenges.
