Pre-Season Elimination of Malaria Infections

Sungano Mharakurwa of the Malaria Institute in Zambia proposes to take advantage of the "off-season" in regions affected by malaria. The team will identify asymptomatic carriers of the malaria parasite using a simple, non-invasive diagnostic tool using saliva samples which can be easily used by village community workers. Those individuals will be treated to eliminate the parasite before it can be transmitted during the rainy season, when malaria cases increase.
