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...

Angola Malaria Indicator Survey 2006-07

Consultoria de Serviços e Pesquisas–COSEP Lda., Saúde–Consaúde, Consultoria de Gestão e Administração em, Lda. [Angola], Macro International Inc.

The 2006-07 Angola Malaria Indicator Survey (AMIS) is the first survey in that country designed to collect nationally representative information on malaria-specific indicators, as part of the MEASURE DHS project. The objectives of the AMIS were to assess household ownership of mosquito nets and their use by children under five and pregnant women; t...

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 ...

GUIDELINES FOR LABORATORY AND FIELD-TESTING OF LONG-LASTING INSECTICIDAL NETS

WHOPES

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...

Insecticide resistance mechanisms The correct use of biochemical or molecular methods for resistance detection at a mechanistic level can provide a powerful tool for analysing vector/pest populations with the aim of improving resistance detection and management.

Insecticide resistance mechanisms: This report outlines the correct use of biochemical or molecular methods for resistance detection at a mechanistic level. These methods provide a powerful tool for analysing vector/pest populations with the aim of improving resistance detection and management.

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...
