BACKGROUND:In 2009, Santa Isabel Province in the Solomon Islands embarked on a malaria elimination programme. However, very little is known in the Province about the anopheline fauna, which species are vectors, their bionomics and how they may respond to intensified intervention measures. The purpose of this study was to provide baseline data on th...

Fenitrothion was evaluated for residual spraying in antimalaria programmes in a large-scale field trial near Kisumu, Kenya from 1972 to 1976. The insecticide was applied in a hyper/holoendemic malarious area of 200 km(2) inhabited by about 50 000 people. All houses and animal shelters were sprayed at a target dosage rate of 2 g/m(2) at 3-month inte...

Fontaine, RE, Pull, J, Payne, D, Pradhan, GD, Joshi, G, Pearson, JA
Fenitronthion, an organophosphorus insecticide, was evaluated for residual spraying in antimalaria programmes in a large-scale field trial near Kisumu, Kenya from August 1972 to June 1976. The project involved entomological, parasitological and toxicological evaluation of the insecticide applied in a hyper/holo-endemic malarious area covering 200 k...

This paper is an attempt to relate modifications observed in general and infant mortality rates with the dynamic changes in transmission induced by malaria control measures. The observations indicated relationships between the efficacy of control and a decrease in mortality. The daily parasitological inoculation rate was reduced from 0.00958 infect...

As part of a community-based, group-randomized, controlled trial of insecticide-treated bed nets (ITNs) in an area with intense malaria transmission in western Kenya, a birth cohort (n = 833) was followed monthly until the age of 24 months to determine the potential beneficial and adverse effects of reduced malaria exposure during pregnancy and inf...

Government health policy for malaria control in Solomon Islands has three main objectives: (1) early diagnosis and treatment of malaria at a health service; (2) reduction of human-vector contact through widespread use of insecticide-impregnated bed nets; and (3) provision of malaria chemoprophylaxis for pregnant women. Social research was carried o...
