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 Sudan.
