Table 2 Implications for public health policy and/or practice

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

Community-based strategies are key to successful VBD control
Intersectoral collaboration will ensure intervention sustainability and policy engagement by health and urban policy actors
Timely release of surveillance results will facilitate prompt remedial actions for vector control
Health education is needed to sustain public participation in vector prevention and control
The use of protective measures such as long-lasting impregnated bed-nets and the implementation of control tools tailored to the local context (including perceptions of field workers and communities) need to be up-scaled.
