Africa - IRS Susceptibility Map

Malaria Atlas Project, MAP, Marianne Sinka

From a series of maps created for VECNet to show continental scale zoning in Africa, Americas, and Asia related to intervention susceptibility. This map depicts zones where there is are endophilic malaria vector species present and where IRS is likely to be a suitable or unsuitable intervention.

Americas - ITN Susceptibility Map

Malaria Atlas Project, MAP, Marianne Sinka

From a series of maps created for VECNet to show continental scale zoning in Africa, Americas, and Asia related to intervention susceptibility. This map depicts zones where there is an exophagic malaria vector species present and where ITNs are likely to be a suitable or unsuitable intervention.

Dichlorodiphenyltrichloroethane (DDT) for indoor residual spraying in Africa: how can it be used for malaria control?

Breman, J. G.
Am J Trop Med Hyg 77(6 Suppl), 249-63. (Dec 2007)

In 2006, the World Health Organization issued a position statement promoting the use of indoor residual spraying (IRS) with dichlorodiphenyltrichloroethane (DDT) for malaria vector control in epidemic and endemic areas. Other international organizations concurred because of the great burden of malaria and the relative ineffectiveness of current tre...

Historical review of malaria control in southern Africa with emphasis on the use of indoor residual house-spraying

Mabaso, M. L., Sharp, B., Lengeler, C.
Tropical Medicine and International Health 9, 846–865. (2004)

Indoor residual house-spraying (IRS) mainly with dichlorodiphenyltrichloroethane (DDT) was the principal method by which malaria was eradicated or greatly reduced in many countries in the world between the 1940s and 1960s. In sub-Saharan Africa early malarial eradication pilot projects also showed that malaria is highly responsive to vector control...

Impregnated nets cannot fully substitute for DDT: Field effectiveness of malaria prevention in Solomon Islands. Policy Research Working Paper 3044

Over, M., Bakotee, B., Velayudhan, R., Wilikai, P., Graves, P. M.
Policy research working paper 3044.The World Bank; 2003.

The incidence of malana in Solomon Islands has been declining since 1992, but there is a large geographical variation between areas in the incidence level and the rate of decline. The authors used a mix of control mterventions, including DDT residual house spraymg and msecticide-treated mosquito nets. Data on monthly incidence and control activitie...
