View the latest updates from the World Mosquito Program in Nouméa.

The World Mosquito Program is working in Nouméa to protect communities from mosquito-borne diseases like dengue, Zika, chikungunya and yellow fever. 

After conducting laboratory studies to examine the impact of Wolbachia on dengue and chikungunya viruses in Nouméa, and engaging with the community to explain our Wolbachia method and gain their acceptance, we are releasing Wolbachia-carrying mosquitoes across Nouméa. 

We are also rigorously evaluating the impact of Wolbachia on the transmission of dengue and other mosquito-borne diseases in the area.
