Watch the APMEN Tech Talk "Repellent application for reduced outdoor malaria transmission"

May 5, 2021 - 20:19 -- Malaria World

Many countries in the Asia-Pacific region have achieved impressive reductions in malaria burden, but persistent residual malaria caused in large part by outdoor-biting vectors pose a serious challenge to malaria elimination objectives. Repellent methods to reduce vector contact with humans offer a tantalizing approach to reduce transmission, and several different methods varying from topical applications, impregnated clothing, space-repellents and others have been tested. This webinar provides insights into these different applications and a platform for discussion.
