Massive Open Online Course on Medical Entomology

May 6, 2021 - 08:21 -- MalariaWorld Events

 

Which mosquitoes transmit the parasites responsible for malaria? Is the Asian tiger mosquito vector of the Zika virus? How is the transmission from vectors to humans and from humans to vector? Here are some of the questions that will find answers in the Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) Pasteur "Medical entomology".

The MOOC “Medical entomology” aims at providing the understanding in medical and veterinary entomology at the university level. It will teach the role of vectors in the functioning of ecosystems and, in a lot of cases, how to interrupt the vector transmission chain. It is organized from an entomological perspective, with each session devoted to a particular taxonomic group of insects and ticks.

Event: Keystone e-Symposium “Malaria in the Era of COVID-19”

March 4, 2021 - 23:00 -- MalariaWorld Events

 

How can we tackle the global threat of COVID-19 without neglecting the fight against malaria? This Keystone e-Symposium will shed light on how to effectively combat the dual challenges of a malaria-endemic world, along-side new complications posed by the COVID-19 pandemic. We must tackle these global health challenges together, as a united community, so as not to lose ground against either of these formidable diseases.
