Health research in South-Ethiopa

Malaria remains a major public health problem worldwide.

Our research started with The Ethiopian Malaria Prediction System research group, which aimed to improve our understanding of the links between climate and malaria.

It was followed by a large community trial to improve malaria control in Ethiopia. This project is called Maltrials: Combining Indoor Residual Spraying and long-lasting insecticidal Nets for Preventing Malaria: Cluster Randomised Trial in Ethiopia, completed in 2018.

During the last few years, researchers at CIH, in collaboration with scientists in Ethiopia through the Senuph programme, have built research to strengthen malaria research.

Currently, two groups are working on malaria.

Preventing malaria

Assessing the impact of housing improvement and ivermectin administration to cattle on malaria transmission in southwest Ethiopia: a community-based cluster randomised control trial

Reducing malaria in Sidama

Reducing the burden of malaria through improving malaria surveillance and health care services in Sidama Regional State, southern Ethiopia: a community and institution based cross-sectional study.
