The Importance of Entomological Monitoring

The PMI VectorLink Project delivers vector control interventions and protects millions of people from contracting malaria. An integral part of our work is robust entomological monitoring, that enables entomologists to identify which mosquitoes carry malaria, the relative geographical and temporal distribution of the mosquitoes transmitting malaria, and the feeding and resting habits of the vector. Watch how we use entomological monitoring to better understand and mitigate mosquitoes’ growing resistance to insecticide, to ensure that we protect vulnerable communities from malaria.
