A new CCP-led study found that targeting men, travelers and seasonal workers could accelerate elimination of malaria in Zanzibar.
In Guyana’s remote interior, one of the biggest threats to gold miners comes from one of the smallest sources: Mosquitoes carrying deadly malaria parasites. CCP is working to develop solutions.
“There’s a need for new tools to complement what’s already available and to protect people during times, and in settings, where people are at risk but net use is not feasible,” says CCP’s April Monroe, who is part of the $33.7 million grant from Unitaid.
“A greater understanding of human behavior and the interaction of humans and mosquitoes is crucial if we are going to eliminate malaria,” says CCP’s April Monroe.
With most vulnerable covered, “now, we need to go even further to provide enough nets for everyone else” to protect them from malaria, says CCP’s Bolanle Olapeju.
“If you really want to eliminate malaria, you have to look at what’s causing the remaining malaria cases once you have good prevention tools in place,” says CCP’s April Monroe.
