“In West Africa, the elimination of malaria is of utmost importance. It’s not enough to have various malaria prevention and control methods or develop efficient advocacy for malaria prevention but it is also important to study the vector that causes the malaria infection and find more efficient ways to interrupt its transmission method.

World Mosquito Day gives us an opportunity to learn more about the mosquito, from its type of species to the method in which it transmits the malaria parasite into the body and the process in which the infection takes place in the body. It also creates an opportunity for researchers, doctors, vector control officers and malaria project managers all around the world to join hands to find a lasting solution to the elimination of malaria.”
