The PMI VectorLink Project is hard at work in Cameroon today, highlighting the important work and lessons learned in malaria prevention and control in Africa at the 2019 Pan-African Mosquito Control Association (PAMCA) Conference. PAMCA brings together mosquito-control experts and researchers from Africa and beyond. The theme of this year’s conference is Strengthening surveillance systems for vector-borne disease elimination in Africa.

The PMI VectorLink Project will present the following:
