Developing a modelling framework for malaria transmission prevention tools

Following years of investment in strategies to control malaria, elimination is now being considered. But optimal delivery strategies and profiles for new tools for elimination differ from those of disease control. The efficacy profiles of new drugs, vaccines and vector control, along with how to delivery and who to target these new malaria interventions, become more important.

By using mathematical models, this project will provide evidence to understand determinants of transformative malaria tools that interrupt transmission. The models will also define the contexts and settings in which new tools will be successful. The evidence generated by this project will inform setting of Target Product Profiles for novel prevent transmission tools for malaria.
