About Malaria

 

Epidemiology

  • William Moss and his team are conducting community-based studies in southern Zambia to understand malaria transmission dynamics in a region of unstable malaria.  The group measures temporal and spatial changes in parasitemia, gametocytemia and antibodies to Plasmodium falciparum to inform malaria control and elimination strategies.


  • Clive Shiff has been a strong proponent of the Macha Research facility because of our need to maintain focused on the disease and its epidemiology. This work also includes the study of the mosquito vectors as they constitute the source of infection and play a key role in the spread of this disease. Currently his work involves an integrated study of the incidence of malaria cases diagnosed at a series of 12 Rural Health Centres in the Macha area. His team record the number of cases of malaria diagnosed weekly in each of these clinics. He hopes to determine the role played by these centers in alerting the Health Authorities of cases diagnosed each week so they can plan control strategies that target areas where the cases are most common.
