Integrated Vector Management Program

Integrated vector management includes education, surveillance, disease diagnostics, source reduction, and source treatment. The Vector Control Program (VCP) is a countywide program, within the County of San Diego Department of Environmental Health and Quality (DEHQ), that works to protect the public from vectors and the diseases they transmit with a balanced, data-driven integrated vector management strategy.

Integrated vector management uses a balanced and “lightest touch” combination of methods to reduce the risk of vector-borne diseases while minimizing effects on the environment. These methods include Public Education, Surveillance and Monitoring, Disease Diagnostics, Source Reduction, and Source Treatment.

The VCP is currently preparing a Program Environmental Impact Report (PEIR) to evaluate potential environmental effects of an enhanced Integrated Vector Management Program (IVMP) in order to best target new and emerging vector problems, safeguard the environment, and protect public health.

LEARN MORE: The draft PEIR is available for review on our website. Meetings to summarize the report for the public were held on October 24th and 26th and a recording can be viewed online.
