Communication and education is key to promoting awareness of insecticide resistance and effective resistance management strategies worldwide. IRAC has published a wide range of communication and educational material, all of which are available free to download from the website. Such communication and educational materials may be used in their entirety and/or portions of such materials may be used freely so long as the appropriate citations are provided for all the applicable authors, materials and/or website. Printed copies of the booklets and the English version of the Mode of Action poster with the structures are available via the IRAC Coordinator.
