Community-Based Entomological Surveillance for Vector Control
December 15, 2021 @ 8:00 am - 9:30 am EST
To sustain and expand the success of vector control, decision-makers need up-to-date, detailed entomological data at a fine scale. The ability to collect this data in hard-to-reach locations can be restricted by national malaria program capacity and a shortage of trained professionals. A decentralized approach using community-based entomological surveillance (CBS) presents an opportunity to increase data collection and sample sizes in multiple regions and to fill gaps in capacity needs.
This webinar will discuss the advantages and challenges of CBS using three examples: from the perspective of the Division of National Malaria Program (DNMP) in Kenya, CBS led by female community health workers in Ethiopia, and CBS enabling data collections at sites with high security risk in Mali.
