Development of a pilot dry season vector control strategy in Mali

Development of a pilot dry season vector control strategy in Mali

Objectives

  1. To characterize and monitor malaria transmission parameters to provide baseline information on entomological parameters of malaria transmission
  2. To perform selective IRS during the dry season in hamlets spanning the Niger River between Kirina and Kenieroba
  3. To assess the impact of IRS on malaria transmission by monitoring entomological parameters of malaria transmission, after performing the selective IRS, in threes set of hamlets and inland villages
