    The APMEN-Kasetsart Online Course

    The APMEN-Kasetsart Online Course in Vector Surveillance now available!

    In our attempts to eliminate malaria, it is useful to remember that ever since it was discovered well over 100 years ago that Anopheles mosquitoes are the vectors, Vector Control has been our primary strategy to overcome this ancient affliction. Vector Control rests squarely on effective Vector Surveillance. However, published reports have shown that globally there is a strong need for capacity-strengthening in vector surveillance, and National Malaria Control Programmes have indicated a desire to receive training support to bolster the shortfalls in skills. To help meet this demand, APMEN has partnered with Kasetsart University in Bangkok to produce a 5-module series of trainings under the heading of “APMEN-Kasetsart Online Course in Vector Surveillance”.

    We are excited and proud to release Module 1, which has multiple tutorials covering the different methods for the collection and processing of malaria vectors. We will release the additional Modules covering mosquito identification, insecticide resistance assays, insectary management, biting behaviour, and others, at roughly monthly intervals, and trust that the course material will assist in alleviating the current shortfall in vector surveillance skills. To access Module 1, please click this button.
