What is it about?

Malaria can be eliminated in some parts of the African continent but requires environmental control which is the basis for vector development.

Why is it important?

The results of this study provide a better understanding of the environmental factors underlying residual transmission and should allow better targeting of vector control interventions for malaria elimination in eligible areas in Africa.


We believe that with the interesting results of this publication, donors will be more interested in funding interventions to control malaria vector proliferation in certain areas of Africa to help governments eliminate the disease in certain countries in Africa where this is possible.
