Design of trials for pathogen elimination

In field trials of new interventions against mosquitoes and the diseases they transmit, there are often spill-over effects between areas that receive the intervention and others that do not, because of mosquito movement.  This project is developing ways of designing trials to make best use of data on spill-over effects to better understand the potential impacts of  interventions (including odour baited traps, and novel bednets), including effects of mosquito movement.

Involved Regions: Africa
