Development of a surveillance system and integrated biological control (ibc) programme for curbing re- emerging malaria in uzbekistan and kazakhstan

Objective

Suppression of vector mosquitoes and subsequent elimination of malaria using traditional chemical insecticides is not feasible due to the resistance mosquitoes have developed to toxic substances and the effect these compounds have on the environment. Thus the development of an integrated biological (IBC) programme which is targeted specifically against the vector species with minimal impact onion-target organisms and the environment represents a rational solution to thesuppresion of malaria. Thus we propose, in this project, to develop and implemental mosquito abatement program based on the utilization of environmentally friendly control measures to reduce vector mosquito populations and suppress or eliminate malaria from the afflicted areas. The benefits of such a project include strengthening scientific and technological capacities of the host country as wells improving the economy in general.
