Development of a new tool for malaria mosquito surveillance to improve vector control

Malaria transmission is influenced not only by vector abundance, but as well by demographic traits such as vector species and age structure, as these influence the intensity by which the …

Demonstrating complete disruption of residual malaria transmission by eliminating Anopheles funestus mosquitoes from rural Tanzanian villages

In rural south-eastern Tanzania, where malaria prevalence has reduced by >60% since 2000, low-to-moderate transmission still persists despite very high coverage with long-lasting insecticidal bednets. Like in most residual transmission …

Emmanuel Kaindoa

Research Scientist and Deputy Head of Environmental Health & Ecological Sciences

Emmanuel Kaindoa is a Research Scientist and Deputy Head of the Environmental Health and Ecological Science Thematic Group. Emmanuel joined Ifakara Health Institute in 2011 to work as a Research Officer within a project called African Vector Control-New Tools Project (AvecNet), a large consortium built on the idea of controlling malaria by targeting the vectors. The main aim of this project is to develop and evaluate new technologies that can be used alongside long-lasting insecticide nets (LLINs) in Africa. He obtained a Masters of Science in Biology and Control of Parasites and Disease Vectors from Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine in 2013 and he is currently working towards a PhD in Public Health at Witwatersrand University, South Africa. Currently, he is also involved in the longitudinal surveillance of malaria vectors in rural Tanzania. Emmanuel’s interests include research on relationships between geography and human health, spatial epidemiology of diseases, with specific focus on understanding underlying biological processes, including how mosquitoes seek and find humans within communities, and how this influences the epidemiology of mosquito-borne diseases. Mr Kaindoa has authored or co-authored six papers in international peer reviewed journals.
