Malaria research at CIH

Malaria remains a major public health problem worldwide. The Ethiopian Malaria Prediction System research group works to improve our understanding of the links between climate and malaria.

During the last years researchers at CIH in collaboration with researchers at the Bjerknes Climate Centre and scientists in Ethiopia have built a research group in epidemiology and entomology to strengthen malaria research. Bernt Lindtjørn leads this work from CIH.

The Ethiopian Malaria Prediction System research group works to improve our understanding of the links between climate and malaria. Recently, they received funding for a community trial to improve malaria control in Ethiopia. The new project is called Combining indoor residual spraying and long-lasting insecticidal nets for preventing malaria: Cluster randomised trial in Ethiopia and you will find more info on this project in the list to the right.

In addition, the website malaria.b.uib.no gives you updated information about this malaria research.
