NEA has conducted a comprehensive risk assessment of Wolbachia technology and has determined it to be safe, with no risk to human health and insignificant risk to ecology. The conclusion is consistent with other international findings. NEA’s long evaluation process involved critical reviews of existing knowledge and research, and consultations with various overseas and local experts, and stakeholders such as academic researchers, medical and healthcare professionals and non-governmental organisations (NGOs). For further reassurance, we have appointed a research company to conduct an independent assessment to identify any potential secondary environmental and social impact that may arise. The outcome is consolidated as follows.
