2010 Kenya Malaria Indicator Survey

Division of Malaria Control, Kenya National Bureau of Statistics, ICF Macro, MEASURE Demographic and Health Surveys (DHS)

The MIS 2010 was conducted during the peak malaria transmission season of June to August. The objectives of the survey were to determine the status of coverage of various key malaria intervention measures; to assess the prevalence of malaria among children 3 months through 14 years; and to assess the level of anaemia among children 6 months through...

A malaria survey in the Lobito-Catumbela region, Angola (Portuguese West Africa)

Ribeiro, H., Casaca, V. M. R., Cochofel, A. L. P.

In this paper, we attempted to define the malaria situation in the Lobito-Catumbela region at the request of the Public Health Service of Angola. Since various antimalaria measures are being put in practice for several years, the result of the present survey were influenced by them in different ways.

A world malaria map: Plasmodium falciparum endemicity in 2007

Hay, S. I., Guerra, C. A., Gething, P. W., Patil, A. P., Tatem, A. J., Noor, A. M., Kabaria, C. W., Manh, B. H. , Elyazar, I. R. F., Brooker, S. , Smith, D. L. , Moyeed, R. A., Snow, R. W.

BACKGROUND: Efficient allocation of resources to intervene against malaria requires a detailed understanding of the contemporary spatial distribution of malaria risk. It is exactly 40 y since the last global map of malaria endemicity was published. This paper describes the generation of a new world map of Plasmodium falciparum malaria endemicity fo...

Angola Malaria Indicator Survey 2011 [MIS11]

ICF International, Ministry of Health, ICF International

Malaria is a major public health problem in Angola and is the primary cause of mortality, illness, and absence from school and work. It represents close to 35 percent of the demand for curative care, 20 percent of hospital admissions, 40 percent of perinatal deaths, and 25 percent of maternal deaths. Approximately 3.7 million cases of malaria were ...

Description of the global surface summary of day product

National Climatic Data Center, NOAA, NCDC, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration

This document is a description of the global surface summary of day product produced by the National Climatic Data Center (NCDC) in Asheville, NC. The input data used in building these daily summaries are the Integrated Surface Data (ISD), which includes global data obtained from the USAF Climatology Center. Over 9000 stations' data are typical...

Annual Plasmodium falciparum entomological inoculation rates (EIR) across Africa. As described in Hay, S.I., D.J. Rogers, J.F. Toomer and R.W.Snow. 2000. Annual Plasmodium falciparum entomological inoculation rates (EIR) across Africa. I. Literature survey, internet access and review. Transactions of the Royal Society of Tropical Medicine and Hygi...



The purpose of this document is to provide specific,standardized procedures and guidelines for testing long-lasting insecticidal nets (LNs) for personal protection and malaria vector control. It is intended to harmonize testing procedures in order to generate data for registration and labelling of such products by national authorities and provide a...

Increase in susceptibility to insecticides with aging of wild Anopheles gambiae mosquitoes from Cote d'Ivoire

Chouaibou, Mouhamadou, Chabi, Joseph, Bingham, Georgina, Knox, Tessa, N'Dri, Louis, Kesse, Nestor, Bonfoh, Bassirou, Pates Jamet, Helen, Mouhamadou S Chouaibou

BACKGROUND:Appropriate monitoring of vector insecticide susceptibility is required to provide the rationale for optimal insecticide selection in vector control programs.METHODS:In order to assess the influence of mosquito age on susceptibility to various insecticides, field-collected larvae of An. gambiae s.l. from Tiassale were reared to adults. F...

Indoor residual spraying for preventing malaria- Cochrane Review

Pluess, B. , Tanser, F.C., Lengeler, C., Sharp, B.L.

Main results IRS versus no IRS a review of the literature and analysis of metadata. Stable malaria (entomological inoculation rate (EIR) > 1): In one RCT in Tanzania IRS reduced re-infection with malaria parasites detected by active surveillance in children following treatment; protective efficacy (PE) 54%. In the same setting, malaria case inciden...

Insecticide resistance monitoring - Test procedures for insecticide resistance monitoring in malaria vectors, bio-efficacy and persistence of insecticide on treated surfaces

World Health Organization

Insecticides play an important role in vector-borne disease control. In Malaria control they are used for the treatment of mosquito nets and other materials, IRS and larvacides. Development of vector resistance to insecticides will limit their use. Knowledge of vector insecticide resistance status and changing trends of resistance in target vectors...
