Closing Nigeria’s Entomology Knowledge Gap

PMI AIRS trains local entomologists for evidenced-based decision-making in malaria control programs Entomological monitoring plays a key role in malaria control programs. Understanding the behavior of the mosquitoes that carry malaria requires precise data on the vector’s density, feeding time, location, and its resistance to insecticides. Trained entomologists are critical to ensuring the necessary research […]
