New malaria tool to help track insecticide resistance
IRIN Africa "A new interactive online mapping tool will help track insecticide resistance (IR) in malaria-causing mosquitoes. The tool, the IR Mapper, “consolidates reports of insecticide resistance in malaria vectors onto filterable maps to inform vector-control strategies”. Data consolidation for the programme was conducted by the Swiss company Vestergaard Frandsen and a partnership between the Kenya Medical Research Institute and the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (KEMRI/CDC). The map interface was developed by ESRI Eastern Africa."
