Biomedical interventions to curb malaria-causing Plasmodium falciparum (Pf) infections are critically needed.
There is increasing interest in the development of effective mosquito repellents of natural origin to reduce transmission of diseases such as malaria and yellow fever.
This study provides a detailed picture of the actual microclimates experienced by mosquitoes in an urban slum malaria setting.
Rapid diagnostic tests scale-up has led to a reduction in body temperature measurement. Investigations are very limited when malaria infection is ruled out as a cause of febrile illness by RDT.
The study demonstrated positive perception to RDT use by HW and among community members with good compliance rate among health workers at the PHC level.
Multi-species interactions can often have non-intuitive consequences.
Malaria transmission remains high in Sub-Saharan Africa despite large-scale implementation of malaria control interventions.
The capacity available for vector control research and surveillance at institutional level in Nigeria is weak and require further strengthening.
Although the containment project had been implemented in this area, the expansion of artemisinin-resistant parasites did not decline.
