Manual for monitoring insecticide resistance in mosquito vectors and selecting appropriate interventions

This document provides detailed guidance on how to evaluate the presence and intensity of phenotypic resistance, and the effect of a synergist in restoring vector susceptibility to an insecticide. It provides an overview of the main mechanisms responsible for the phenotypic expression of resistance in disease vectors and on how to use mechanism data to guide decisions. It does not provide details on the techniques available to identify each mechanism but refers readers to external resources where these techniques are detailed.
