Abstract: Since September 2006 the Northern Territory (NT) Department of Health and Community Services (DHCS) has been involved in an AusAID funded project in collaboration with the Timor-Leste Ministry of Health (MoH) in the area of mosquito surveillance and control. The aim of the project is to increase the capacity of the MoH to carry out effective mosquito surveillance and control programs so that the incidence of mosquito-borne disease in Timor-Leste can be reduced. This collaborative effort involves DHCS officers from both the Medical Entomology Branch (MEB) and the Health Policy Branch. Initially the Timor-Leste AusAID Mosquito Project will focus on the development and implementation of vector control programs to reduce the incidence of dengue in Timor-Leste.
