ICEMR-MALI : Multidisciplinary Research For Malaria Control And Prevention in West Africa
Wide deployment of malaria control tools in the past decade, has significantly contribute to substantial reduction of the incidence and deaths related to the disease in Sub-sahara Africa. Yet, the region continues to carry a disproportionately high share of the global malaria burden of malaria deaths.
Several studies report a high but stable malaria incidence in Africa [2-5]. Other studies have also shown that after a long period of decreasing burden related to intensive control interventions, malaria rebound occurred presumably associated with resistance to drug and insecticides[6, 7].
Moreover, rebounded in others setting after a long period of decrease associated with intensive deployment of malaria control tools. There is a need to understand the relationships interaction among current combination of malaria control interventions, entomologic aspects of transmission and the incidence of human infection and disease in different eco-zones across West Africa that span the savanna and sub-Saharan Sahel region.
