The MalariaWorld Journal
This article is a book review of 'The encyclopedia of medical and veterinary entomology', which is based on and adapted from the original text 'Medical and Veterinary Entomology'written by Prof. Douglas S. Kettle (the second edition, which was published in 1995). It will be much valued by those needing basic information on arthropods of medical and veterinary importance and thus deserves to be present in your library or on your bookshelf.
The purpose of this survey was to assess peoples’ knowledge and perceptions on malaria among all the 71 households of Tubu village, located on the fringes of the Okavango Delta, in order to generate information to contribute to the malaria elimination programme being implemented by the Ministry of Health of Botswana. Generally, the high level of awareness and good practices shown by the community were ideal for sustainable implementation of community-based malaria intervention programmes. Misconceptions on malaria need to be corrected as these may have some detrimental effects on the Ministry of Health’s goal of malaria elimination in Botswana by 2016.
