WORLD MOSQUITO DAY: FOCUSING ON THE INVASIVE AN. STEPHENSI IN ETHIOPIA
An Asian malaria vector is invading Ethiopia and other parts of sub-Saharan Africa. If this invasive vector continues to spread, large parts of Ethiopia could see dramatic increases in incidence of malaria.
Lives are at stake. Where do we go from here?
The U.S. President’s Malaria Initiative VectorLink Project’s Senior Entomologist Aklilu Seyoum will host a compelling discussion with leading entomologists as they share their latest research on the An. stephensi mosquito and what it means for those most vulnerable to malaria in Ethiopia.
- Dr. Fitsum Girma (Lead Scientist, Armauer Hansen Research Institute) from Ethiopia’s Ministry of Health
- Dr. Meshesha Balkew (Vector Monitoring Director, PMI VectorLink Ethiopia)
- Dr. Thomas Churcher (Reader in Infectious Disease Dynamics) from Imperial College
