The National Academy of Vector Borne Diseases (NAVBD) is the premier organization in the country working for the cause of human health. Prior to the formation of this academy there was no forum to bring together the scientists, academicians and public health personnel working in malaria and other vector borne diseases in the country to disseminate and exchange their experiences and knowledge in controlling these diseases. Therefore in 1994 about 15 like minded scientists decided to constitute this academy. Padmashree Dr V P Sharma became the founder PRESIDENT and Prof AP Dash became the founder SECRETARY GENERAL of the Academy.

The membership has now grown up to more than 239 .The academy has organized 10 International symposiums so far at different places of India. The conferences usually attended by 200-500 scientists and invited guests from India and abroad belonging to research institutions, universities, vector borne disease control programme managers and scientific staff working at the centre, states and urban areas.
The academy publishes the papers presented in the international symposiums as proceedings and News Letters annually to disseminate information to all life members as well as other important persons working/interested in the field of vector and vector borne diseases.

The following awards have been instituted by the academy to recognize research contributions made by the scientists in the field of vectors and vector borne diseases.

1. National Academy of Vector Borne Diseases Awards: Three awards (one for Environmental Aspects, one for Clinical Research and one for Molecular Biology) for the outstanding contributions in the field of Vector Borne Diseases.

2. Best Poster Presentation Awards: The academy has instituted six best poster presentation awards in two categories (3 each) to be given during Annual meeting/Symposium of are given: Research Scholars (below 35 years) and Research Scientists (35 years and above).
