The Entomological Society of America (ESA) and Sociedade Entomológica do Brasil (SEB) held a Summit in Maceió, Alagoas, Brazil on March 13, 2016 to discuss the research and implementation knowledge gaps in current approaches to handling the Aedes aegypti crisis in the Americas.

The one-day meeting brought together more than 60 researchers, public health officials, entomologists, vector control experts, and representatives from NGOs and other agencies for a day of plenary talks, breakout sessions, panels discussions, and other presentations on the topic of establishing a sustainable and effective level of control for Aedes aegypti, the yellow fever mosquito, which is known to carry dengue, chikungunya, yellow fever, and more recently the Zika virus.
