The MALVEC project, Characterization of insecticide resistance in malaria vectors in the Lao People’s Democratic Republic and Thailand and capacity building in medical entomology, was carried out in the Lao PDR and northeastern Thailand during – with the overall objective to improve strategies for prevention and control of malaria.

Following unsuccessful eradication attempts there was a resurgence of malaria towards the end of the 20th century. Renewed control efforts using a range of improved tools, such as long-lasting insecticide-treated bednets and artemisinin-based combination therapies, have more than halved the global burden of disease, but it remains high with deaths and more than million cases in Malaria is a mosquito-borne disease caused by a parasite.

People with malaria often experience fever, chills, and flu-like illness. Left untreated, they may develop severe complications and die. A parasite is an organism that lives on or in a host and gets its food from or at the expense of its host.

Parasites can cause disease in humans. Malaria is a major international public health problem; 91 countries reported an estimated million infections anddeaths inaccording to the World Health Organization (WHO) World Malaria Report Travelers going to malaria-endemic countries are at risk for contracting the disease, and almost all of the approximately 1,   The National Malaria Eradication Program was a cooperative undertaking by state and local health agencies of 13 southeastern states and the Communicable Disease Center of the U.

Children and pregnant women are the most affected groups; however, % of the population is considered at risk for the disease. Malaria resurgence_a systematic review and assessment of its causes_Cohen_pdf Content available from CC BY Malaria resurgence: A systematic review and assessment of its The risk of disease can be reduced by preventing mosquito bites through the use of mosquito nets and insect repellents, or with mosquito control measures such as spraying insecticides and draining standing water.

Several medications are available to prevent malaria in travellers to areas where the disease is : Plasmodium spread by mosquitos. Millions Saved is a collection of success stories in global health—remarkable cases in which large-scale efforts to improve health in developing countries have succeeded.

Vector control is a vital component of malaria control and elimination strategies as it can be highly effective in preventing infection and reducing disease transmission.

The 2 core interventions for malaria vector control are insecticide-treated nets (ITNs) and indoor residual spraying (IRS). Malaria remains a challenge to public health in sub-Saharan Africa and is a leading cause of morbidity and mortality [1,2,3].It is one of the most prevalent parasitic diseases worldwide, with thousands of people suffering every year [].According to the WHO World Malaria Report [], a total of countries are considered malaria endemic and at least billion people are at by: 3.

To better define infectious diseases of concern in Thailand, trends in the mortality rate during – were analyzed by using data from public health statistics reports.

From to the mids, the rate of infectious disease–associated deaths declined 5-fold (from deaths/, population in to /, in ).Cited by: This case study article describes the long-term use of modelling in close collaboration with the National Malaria Control Programme (NMCP) in Tanzania, the challenges encountered and lessons learned.

Human efforts to control malaria have markedly restricted its distribution during the 20th century. 12–17 Distribution maps have been compiled largely from country reports and expert opinion arising from the network of regional offices of the WHO.

Despite these maps being imperfect representations of global malaria-infection risk distribution in space and time, they nevertheless facilitate Cited by: In addition to its core research, IHME leads a number of special research projects focusing on the Global Burden of Disease, health resource allocation, malaria control, and population health measurement and evaluation.

IHME is collaborating with hundreds of public health experts and researchers around the world on these projects.Inthere were million malaria cases that led todeaths. Of these 61 per cent (,) were children under 5 years of age. This translates into a daily toll of nearly children under age 5.
