I’m joined by Lukyn Gedge who is coordinating the Microbide Bucket Challenge in India. Her team is testing the efficacy of a new biodegradable larvicide that can kill mosquitos, releasing carbon dioxide and water into the atmosphere.
Microbide is developing a biodegradable insecticide for the control of mosquitoes. It’s currently undergoing so-called ‘bucket trials’ in India.
Rachel Carson was a passionate scientist and ecologist who wrote about the environment. Her most famous book, Silent Spring, discusses the consequences of DDT misuse.
Dr Mike Coleman and Kirsten Duda of the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine discuss their mobile game, Resistance 101, that aims to make concepts of insecticide resistance more accessible and engaging.
The PMI VectorLink Project is equipping countries to plan and implement sustainable Indoor Residual Spraying programs and other life-saving malaria control interventions. I wanted to know what’s changed in the malaria field and what they are currently doing to end malaria.
Today, we’re joined by Cheyenne Cook from the Vector LearningXChange platform. The platform has been designed for vector control stakeholders from around the world to learn from each other about the most effective ways to prevent malaria. Think of it as the Facebook of malaria control programmes.
