Arthropod vectors transmit organisms that cause many
emerging and reemerging diseases, and their control is
reliant mainly on the use of chemical insecticides. Only a
few classes of insecticides are available for public health
use, and the increased spread of insecticide resistance is
a major threat to sustainable disease control. The primary
strategy for mitigating the detrimental effects of insecticide
resistance is the development of an insecticide resistance
management plan. However, few examples exist to show
how to implement such plans programmatically. We describe
the formulation and implementation of a resistance
management plan for mosquito vectors of human disease
in Zambia. We also discuss challenges, steps taken to address
the challenges, and directions for the future.
