Committed to developing innovative solutions for vector disease control

We believe people around the world should live their lives uninterrupted by insects and vector-borne diseases like malaria. Mosquitoes are the primary cause of malaria, which affects hundreds of thousands of people each year. With Syngenta mosquito vector control solutions, these pests can be controlled to prevent harmful diseases and make a positive difference in the lives of people around the world.

For more than a decade, we have been committed to protecting people in the fight toward malaria eradication. By partnering with the IVCC and others, we have pioneered ground-breaking solutions to decrease malaria cases. We continue to invest in research and development to deliver the next generation of vector control tools.

One application of Actellic® 300CS, an indoor residual spray, provides control of mosquitoes resistant to pyrethroids for at least 9 months. For more information on where to find Actellic® 300CS, email us at [email protected].

Since being developed in partnership with the IVCC, Actellic® 300CS has protected more than 34 million per year against malaria transmission in more than 30 countries in Sub-Saharan Africa.

 

Syngenta has helped reduce up to 64% of malaria cases after indoor residual sprays with Actellic® 300CS.
