Mosquito Project Fact Sheet
Responses to challenges to the Friendly Aedes aegypti Project
A local group opposed to the Friendly Aedes aegypti Project have made a series of public statements. Many of these assertions are false or misleading. This briefing is designed to facilitate accurate information.
The project is being carried out by the Cayman Islands Mosquito Research and Control Unit (MRCU) in collaboration with biotechnology company Oxitec.
The first section of this document addresses some common questions about the project. The second part addresses points from an advert published in the Cayman Compass on Friday June 3, 2016. At the end are MRCU and Oxitec contact details.
