Micro-epidemiology of malaria in an elimination setting in Central Vietnam

In Vietnam, malaria persists at low prevalence in remote forested areas in the Central and Southern provinces. A mixed-methods study was conducted in central Vietnam, combining ethnographic and epidemiological research to identify risk factors for malaria exposure, which was measured by serology. We found that in this low prevalence setting with high uptake of malaria control interventions, ongoing malaria transmission appears to be maintained by outdoor evening activities, including evening drinking gatherings TV watching in villages, as well fishing and logging in the forest. This study provides detailed information on human behaviours that contribute to residual transmission, and points to the importance of micro-epidemiological approaches in pre-elimination settings to identify context-specific determinants of persisting malaria transmission.

Aims and Scope

Malaria Journal is aimed at the scientific community interested in malaria in its broadest sense. It is the only journal that publishes exclusively articles on malaria and, as such, it aims to bring together knowledge from the different specialties involved in this very broad discipline, from the bench to the bedside and to the field. Malaria Journal offers a fast publication schedule while maintaining rigorous peer-review; this is achieved by managing the whole of the publication process electronically, from submission to peer-review.

Editor-in-Chief - Marcel Hommel, University of Liverpool, UK

Time to go for Vivax

In 2002, the vivax malaria community created a forum for providing a friendly environment to share and discuss research results on Plasmodium vivax. Meetings were held in Bangkok, Rockville, Panama, Barcelona, Bali, and this year, in Manaus.

The aim of this Thematic series, ‘Time to go for vivax’ (the motto of the Manaus meeting) is to emphasize this biennial event and the role it plays in promoting the study of Plasmodium vivax. The articles in the series are all based on presentations given in Manaus.

ACT now: anti-malarial market complexity one decade after the introduction of artemisinin combination therapy – evidence from sub-Saharan Africa and the Greater Mekong Sub-region

ACTwatch report on their 10-year monitoring of ACT usage in sub-Saharan Africa and in the Greater Mekong sub- region, make recommendations and share their data with the malaria community. They have spoken to BugBitten about their work and their motivation for making their datasets publicly available.

Ivermectin to reduce malaria transmission

Ivermectin has been used to treat some NTDs for years, but its potential use to block malaria transmission is not well known. Carlos Chaccour and colleagues review the role the ivermectin can play in reducing malaria. Carlos Chaccour and Regina Rabinovich also discuss the series and ivermectin in their interview with BugBitten blog.
