World Mosquito Day 2016
World Mosquito Day is August 20, a date first established in 1897, when Sir Ronald Ross discovered the link between mosquitoes and malaria transmission. It's a day to raise awareness about the cause of malaria, how it can be prevented, and to highlight vector control research and new tools being developed. Furthermore, PMI salutes the groundbreaking work of Sir Ross and scientists who are fighting the battle against malaria.
