Tracking Insecticide Resistance in Mosquito Vectors of Arboviruses: The Worldwide Insecticide resistance Network (WIN)

Vincent Corbel and colleagues discuss WIN, an international program that aims to identify regions and countries where insecticide resistance may challenge mosquito control, to explore the mechanisms conferring resistance, and to predict further expansion. These objectives will be achieved by producing in-depth reviews of insecticide resistance–related topics.
