Event: APMEN TechTalk - Homing in on Residual Malaria

June 29, 2021 - 16:51 -- MalariaWorld Events

Jul 7, 2021 01:00 PM in Singapore

Vector Control has been our ‘Go-to’ primary tool against malaria for more than a century, but as countries get closer to Elimination and pockets of Residual Malaria frustrate our historic default approaches to combat malaria, we need to engage in more subtle and locally-targeted tactics. Pockets of sustained low-grade transmission need to be identified, an understanding developed of the specific causes perpetuating such transmission, and focal interventions targeting such gaps implemented. In these three presentations we look at different aspects of such a targeted, focal approach to addressing residual malaria to reach Elimination.

Countries in the Asia Pacific region have done extremely well in achieving impressing levels of malaria reduction, but many still face the challenges of pernicious residual malaria. In Greater Mekong Subregion, much of this remaining malaria occurs within remote forested areas among forest-goers and mobile populations, where transmission happens outdoors. In these situations, bed nets and indoor spraying are not effective. Much has been published and debated on the subject but remains as intractable a challenge as ever. What to do about it?
