PMI Collaborates with Communities to Beat Malaria

The U.S. President’s Malaria Initiative (PMI) VectorLink Project collaborates with national and local governments to identify, study, and record where malaria-transmitting mosquitoes live, how they feed, when they rest, and the density of their population. In Kenya, PMI trained community health volunteers on how to catch and monitor mosquitoes, expanding the national government’s geographical reach to collect critical data on mosquitoes from two counties. This data will help to inform vector control decision making in the fight against malaria.
