History & Expertise
Our heritage of over 60 years in the field is only worth mentioning if we have something to show for it. Our accumulated expertise and experience in worldwide vector control gives us reliable continuity plus a unique, in-depth understanding of the issues involved. This also includes our joint activities with our HealthCare division in saving people from Chagas and sleeping sickness.
But it is not enough just to understand the strategies and political processes at a global level. We know the regional experts too and help the people at a local level by offering services to back up our product and operational expertise. Sustainable, customized strategies and solutions for resistance management are an essential part of our work. Integrated Vector Management (IVM), in fact.
This history of innovation, education, and stewardship underlines our commitment to providing solutions that benefit people, improve their health and quality of life whilst being mindful of the environment.

These can extend from multi-stakeholder initiatives with governments and NGOs to collaborative research projects with universities and other business projects. We find that sharing knowledge and know-how gives us inspiration and provides us all with an opportunity to share new ideas on prevention and control with the people of different countries and cultures.

Training & Education
Integrated Vector Management projects have a better chance of being sustained if the communities adopt them. So we deploy groups of experts to train local teams from national vector control programs on the correct use of our products. Bayer facilitates technology access and networking in order to increase the impact of local entomology training.
But different approaches are required for different target groups. We have also developed cartoon booklets to show children how to use bed nets, prevent being bitten by mosquitoes and recognize the early signs of malaria. Also, since 1985, we have been regularly publishing the Bayer Public Health Journal. This covers vector and pest control and their effects on public health, with informative articles that focus on important real world issues written by experts in the field.
