First BOVA network Management Board Meeting
The 10th October saw the first meeting of the BOVA network Management Board meeting with participation of members from Australia, Denmark, Kenya, the Netherlands, Switzerland and the UK. Prof. Lindsay introduced the vision of the network and outlined the roles and responsibilities of the Management Board members. Management Board members shared ideas for advocacy particularly on how to highlight the threat of insect-borne diseases to those working in the built environment. We look forward to the first face-to-face board meeting in December during which the expressions of interest for research funding will be discussed and the short list finalised!
