The model revealed a spatial and temporal pattern of malaria incidence. These patterns were found to exhibit a stable malaria transmission in most non-coastal districts.

We discuss how the application of molecular techniques has led to the identification of submicroscopic gametocyte carriage and to a reassessment of the human infectious reservoir.
Mosquito resistance to chemical insecticides is considered a serious threat for the sustainable use of contemporary malaria vector control methods.
This scientific event aimed at identifying the gaps and research priorities in the prevention and control of malaria and sleeping sickness in Africa and to promote exchange between North and South in the fields of medical entomology, epidemiology, immunology and parasitology.
Malaria is one of the most common vector-borne diseases widespread in the tropical and subtropical regions.
We use numerical simulation of mathematical models of malaria in humans and mosquitoes to provide robust quantitative predictions of effectiveness of different strategies in reducing transmission, morbidity and mortality.
The presentation will discuss the state-of-the-art of this behavioural technology for vector-borne disease control, and provide an outlook for future prospects.
Despite being one of the most prevalent tropical diseases, for many years malaria was not a commercial priority for the pharmaceutical industry.
This pilot project showed that active case detection is feasible and can identify reservoirs of asymptomatic infection. A larger sample size, data over multiple low transmission seasons, and in areas with different transmission dynamics are needed to further validate this approach.
