Press release: Researchers receive $10.2 million to study new malaria-prevention method

December 11, 2015 - 06:43 -- Ingeborg van Schayk
UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. -- In collaboration with partners in Europe and Africa, researchers at Penn State have received a five-year, $10.2-million grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to investigate a new method for preventing the transmission of malaria. The method involves limiting mosquito access to houses by blocking openings and installing "eave tubes" that contain a unique type of insecticide-laced mosquito netting developed by Dutch partner In2Care that kills the insects as they attempt to enter. 
 

World Malaria Report 2018 is out!

November 20, 2018 - 16:22 -- Ingeborg van Schayk

This year's report shows that after an unprecedented period of success in global malaria control, progress has stalled. Data from 2015–2017 highlight that no significant progress in reducing global malaria cases was made in this period. There were an estimated 219 million cases and 435 000 related deaths in 2017.

The World malaria report 2018 draws on data from 91 countries and areas with ongoing malaria transmission. The information is supplemented by data from national household surveys and databases held by other organizations.

Looking back at MIM2018: Some food for thought

I visited the largest malaria conference on the African continent. More than 2.000 malaria professionals gathered in Dakar for the 7th Multilateral Initiative on Malaria Conference. Every day started with a plenary session presented by 2 keynote speakers: 12 keynote addresses by 12 renowned scientists. But... only 2 were African.

How One Child’s Sickle Cell Mutation Helped Protect the World From Malaria

March 13, 2018 - 17:25 -- Ingeborg van Schayk

8 March 2018, Carl Zimmer (New York Times)

The genetic mutation arose 7,300 years ago in just one person in West Africa, scientists reported on Thursday. Its advantage: a shield against rampant malaria.

Thousands of years ago, a special child was born in the Sahara. At the time, this was not a desert; it was a green belt of savannas, woodlands, lakes and rivers. Bands of hunter-gatherers thrived there, catching fish and spearing hippos.
