Forging a new paradigm for dengue control
The Partnership for Dengue Control (PDC) was created in 2013 to spearhead an integrated approach to sustainably control and prevent dengue. We seek to create synergies among the many new and innovative tools in the development pipeline and determine the most effective control strategies.
