Malaria Epidemiology

  • Key questions

    1.       What spatiotemporal monitoring options can guide and accelerate transmission reduction efforts through more targeted intervention strategies? Geo-statistics, epidemiology

    2.       Which treatment optimisation options can contribute to transmission reduction and combat emerging artemisinin resistance? Pharmaco-epidemiology.

    3.       Is the proposed RTS,S malaria vaccine regimen a safe and effective malaria control tool when implemented through routine EPI services? Knowledge translation, phase 4/implementation research.

    4.     Is a strong focus on local capacity development a viable research strategy in an international centre-of-excellence? Capacity building.
