A greener vision for vector control: The example of the Singapore dengue control programme

Infections due to dengue and other viruses transmitted by Aedes mosquitoes are on the rise worldwide as a result of urbanisation, trade, population movement, and climate change. Contemporary vector control programmes have struggled to control Aedes-borne diseases, but the Singapore dengue control programme provides a success story. Shuzhen Sim and colleagues detail Singapore's successes in this Review
