Treating netting eave baffles with pirimiphos-methyl to control indoor-feeding Anopheles funestus malaria vectors at an affordable cost


  • Dingani Chinula

    National Malaria Control Centre

Project summary

Dingani aims to demonstrate that treating netting eave baffles with insecticides can be a cost-effective way to control indoor-feeding Anopheles funestus mosquitoes. If proven effective, this technique could be extended beyond Zambia, to other countries where malaria is endemic, potentially saving billions of dollars for overstretched funders of malaria vector control. The Fellowship will also support Dingani's Master's training at the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine, facilitating his career in operational vector control research. Dingani collaborates with Dr Gerry Killeen, his sponsor at the Liverpool School, and with Dr Pascalina Chanda of the Ministry of Health, Zambia.

This grant was awarded under the scheme's previous name of Master's Fellowships in Public Health and Tropical Medicine.
