Table 1 Priority needs for future research

From: Effective surveillance systems for vector-borne diseases in urban settings and translation of the data into action: a scoping review

Improved study designs
New tools to collect, analyze, and disseminate information (GIS, mHealth, apps)
New tools to control vectors and pathogens because of increasing resistance to insecticides and drugs (sterile mosquitoes, Wolbachia, multiplex virus diagnoses)
Identification of residual sources of infection for better VBD control
