Malaria and lymphatic filariasis : the case for integrated vector management.

van den Berg, H. and Kelly-Hope, L.A. and Lindsay, S.W. (2013) 'Malaria and lymphatic filariasis : the case for integrated vector management.', The lancet infectious diseases., 13 (1). pp. 89-94.

Abstract

The global programmes to eliminate both malaria and lymphatic filariasis are facing operational and technical challenges. Available data show that the use of treated or untreated bednets and indoor residual spraying for malaria control concomitantly reduced filarial rates. In turn, mass drug administration campaigns against lymphatic filariasis can be combined with the distribution of insecticide-treated bednets. Combining these disease control efforts could lead to more efficient use of resources, more accurate attribution of effects, and more effective control of both diseases. Systematic integration requires coordination at all levels, mapping of coendemic areas, and comprehensive monitoring and evaluation.
