World Mosquito Program - Randomised Controlled Trial

The clever folks at the World Mosquito Program are doing some amazing work to reduce the spread of dengue fever through mosquitos in parts of the world. We were excited to work on this animation for a great cause, that better explains exactly what they're doing and the results they have achieved through their Wolbachia program, and the randomised controlled trial they conducted.

Study Summary

In order to measure the efficacy of the Wolbachia method, WMP, in collaboration with partners the Tahija Foundation and Gadjah Mada University, conducted a Cluster Randomised Controlled Trial within a 26km2 area of Yogyakarta City, Indonesia.  

The aim of the study was to determine whether deployment of Wolbachia-carrying Aedes aegypti mosquitoes leads to a reduction in dengue incidence in Wolbachia-treated versus untreated areas.  The study site was subdivided into 24 clusters, among which 12 were randomly selected to receive Wolbachia mosquito releases. The remaining 12 continued to receive routine dengue control efforts. 

Following the successful establishment of Wolbachia, consenting patients presenting with fever were enrolled at a network of primary care clinics across the study area over a period of 27 months, and were tested for dengue. 

The result speaks for itself.
