Northern branch

An online talk from Professor Steve Lindsay, Durham University


Event outline

In sub-Saharan Africa, most transmission of mosquito-transmitted diseases, such as malaria or dengue, occurs within or around houses. Preventing mosquito house entry and reducing mosquito production around the home would help reduce the transmission of these diseases. Based on recent research, key recommendations are made for reducing the threat of mosquito-transmitted diseases through changes to the built environment based on the DELIVER mnemonic. Simple changes to the built environment will reduce exposure to mosquito-transmitted diseases and help keep regions free from these diseases after elimination.

Join the Northern branch online for this talk from Professor Steve Lindsay, public health entomologist at Durham University. There will be ample time following the talk for questions from the audience.
