Controlling emergent Anopheles stephensi in Ethiopia and Sudan

Project Details


The Asian malaria vector Anopheles stephensi has recently been discovered in Africa. We
hypothesise that invasive An. stephensi poses a significant malaria risk in urban
settings in the Horn of Africa and that this risk can be mitigated through targeted,
multi-sectoral vector control combined with rigorous entomological surveillance. This
project brings together a multidisciplinary team of investigators with expertise in
epidemiology, parasitology, entomology, mathematical and geostatistical modelling and
medical anthropology with the aim of controlling the spread of An. stephensi in Ethiopia and
