In an upcoming webinar hosted by The Vector LearningXchange, representatives from the NgenIRS partnership will discuss the role of 3rd generation…Find out more »
Webinar! Mapping 101 with Maxar: How Geospatial Data Improves Planning and Implementation in Vector Control
Presenters: Matt Hallas, Maxar and Solomon Wasse, PMI VectorLink Ethiopia Matt Hallas from Maxar Technologies and Solomon Wasse from PMI VectorLink Ethiopia discuss the application of geospatial data for the purposes of improving the planning and implementation of vector control interventions. Satellite imagery and data derived from high-resolution imagery can be used to accurately map the distribution of populations, which is particularly beneficial in regions that historically have been unmapped. After quickly covering the basics of extracting information from satellite imagery,…Find out more »
Webinar! Advancing Progress in Malaria Control: Optimizing the collection, analysis, and use of entomological data for vector control decision-making.
We invite you to join us for an engaging webinar as we discuss efforts under The PMI VectorLink Project to advance progress in malaria control through optimizing the collection, analysis, and use of entomological data for vector control decision-making. Elodie Vaja (UCSF Institute for Global Health Sciences), Neil Lobo (The University of Notre Dame Eck Institute for Global Health), and Joseph Chabi (PMI VectorLink Cote d’Ivoire) will discuss the use and application of the entomological surveillance planning tool (ESPT) in entomological data…Find out more »
From start-up to full-scale distribution, The PMI VectorLink Project has worked with country governments to develop and implement school-based ITN distribution campaigns.

We will also discuss SBD standard practices and introduce new tools that country governments can use in their SBD implementation. Presenters: led by Jane Miller, PMI VectorLink; Ketty Ndhlovu, NMCP Zambia;…Find out more »
WORLD MOSQUITO DAY: FOCUSING ON THE INVASIVE AN. STEPHENSI IN ETHIOPIA An Asian malaria vector is invading Ethiopia and other parts of sub-Saharan Africa. If this invasive vector continues to spread, large parts of Ethiopia could see dramatic increases in incidence of malaria. Lives are at stake. Where do we go from here? The U.S. President’s Malaria Initiative VectorLink Project’s Senior Entomologist Aklilu Seyoum will host a compelling discussion with leading entomologists as they share their latest research on…Find out more »
