Epidemiology and transmission (Southwest Pacific ICEMR)

Epidemiology and transmission (Southwest Pacific ICEMR)

Objectives

To advance understanding of how reductions in malaria transmission mediated by sustained, intensified public health interventions that include universal deployment of long lasting insecticide treated bed nets (LLINs) and artemisinin combination treatment (ACT) alter the complex relationship between Plasmodium spp. parasites, malaria vectors and the human host in ways that can be translated to monitoring, evaluating and guiding regional and national malaria control programs.
