Optimal treated mosquito bed nets and insecticides for eradication of malaria in Missira

Abstract Related Papers Cited by
  • We extend the deterministic mathematical malaria model framework of Dembele et al. and use it to study the impact of protecting humans from mosquito bites and mass killing of mosquito vectors on malaria incidence in Missira, a village in Mali. As a case study, we fit our model to Missira malaria incidence data. Using the fitted model, we compute the optimal proportion of protected human population from infected mosquito bites and optimal proportion of killed moquitoes that would lead to the eradication of malaria in Missira.
