Liverpool School of Tropic Medicine (LSTM) Seminar: Dr Andrew Hope "Tiny Targets – from a research project to large scale vector control implementation"

Liverpool School of Tropic Medicine Seminar - Wednesday 19th February 1-2PM Livestream 

Historically the control of Gambian Human African Trypanosomiasis (g-HAT) relied on case detection and treatment and vector control did not play a significant role as available methods were not cost-effective. This led to an initiative by LSTM and international partners to develop new, low cost tsetse control methods which resulted in the Tiny Target. Vector control is now a named tool in the WHO strategy for eliminating g-HAT and Tiny Targets are being used on a large scale across five countries which together account for over 80% of all g-HAT cases reported from 2009-2018.
