Until 2015 – Outdoor/Residual Malaria Transmission
Working Group Secretariat
Dr Konstantina Boutsika, Swiss TPH
This work stream had an initial focus on personal protection for mobile populations in the Mekong, where emerging artemisinin resistance poses the other great threat to global malaria control efforts. The work stream brought together the commercial sector, academia, and national programs to inventory resources, and created common protocols for examining efficacy and community acceptability to adapt repellents and other treated materials that could supplement current vector control tools.
