Results from Process Assessments in Three sub-Saharan African Countries. In 2018, The United States President's Malaria Initiative (PMI) VectorLink project undertook long-lasting insecticide-treated net (LLIN) continuous distribution system assessments in Burkina Faso, Cameroon, and Niger. The assessment design built on the global learning and successes of work by the Alliance for Malaria Prevention (AMP) on distribution systems. The objectives were to describe the current status of country systems and identify and prioritize improvements with the potential to bring efficiency gains…Find out more »
Résultats des évaluations de processus dans trois pays d'Afrique subsaharienne. En 2018, le projet VectorLink de l'Initiative du Président des États-Unis sur le paludisme (PMI) a entrepris des évaluations du système de distribution continue des moustiquaires imprégnées d'insecticide (LLIN) au Burkina Faso, au Cameroun et au Niger. La conception de l’évaluation s’appuie sur l’apprentissage global et les succès des travaux de l’Alliance pour la Prévention du Paludisme (AMP) sur les systèmes de distribution. Les objectifs étaient de décrire l’état actuel…Find out more »
The NgenIRS partnership led by IVCC and funded by Unitaid with support from The U.S. President’s Malaria Initiative, The Global Fund, PATH, and Abt Associates is establishing a sustainable, competitive and growing market for effective 3GIRS products at affordable prices. NgenIRS is making the most effective, long-lasting insecticides available to malaria programs and implementation partners to support insecticide resistance management strategies. 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 »
