This article describes the use of distribution patterns of human and mosquito populations as well as characteristics of candidate outdoor interventions, showing that it is possible to readily determine suitable areas for targeted positioning of odour-baited lure and kill stations, to improve vector control interventions. This study also highlights possibilities of relying on community knowledge to approximate areas where mosquitoes are most abundant and where to locate outdoor complementary interventions such as odour-baited lure and kill stations for controlling disease-transmitting mosquitoes.

This article focuses on a novel method to fix window screens through the use of so-called S/O channel grips. It is a very simple, yet highly effective method, which allows for nets to be removed intact so that these can be washed. As an architectural modification to houses this poses a new and improved manner to prevent mosquitoes from entering.
The history of malaria control in Uganda, the difficulties experienced in past and current control efforts, and the challenges lying ahead are being reviewed in this article. A case is made for the advantages that localised responsiblity and interventions may bring, particularly for rural communities.
This article focuses on the life of American science writer and microbiologist Paul de Kruif, and his dealing with various malaria topics. A case is made for the role of science journalists in driving the application of newly generated knowledge in the real world of malaria control.
This article focuses on the development of stable prototype formulations that combine artesunate and amodiaquine hydrochloride.
This article reports on practical issues regarding transportation of sterile male Anopheles arabiensis pupae or adults and their competitiveness against wild males in a semi-field environment in Sudan.
