This project aims to use serological assays to detect exposure to Anopheles’ salivary and malaria parasite antigens and design a serosurveillance tool for malaria exposure.
This approach will be used as an epidemiological tool to explore heterogeneity in rates of malaria transmission, identifying residual transmission “hot spots” and “hot pops” that can assess the effectiveness of vector control measures and guide appropriate malaria control interventions.
Serological surveillance of vectors and parasites is one approach that can improve the surveillance of malaria in the Asia Pacific and contributed to progress towards the goal of malaria elimination by 2030.
