  • Diseases such as Dengue, Yellow fever, Zika amongst others are increasingly gaining steam in some parts of Cameroon. A recent study carried out by some researchers at CRID Armel N. Tedjou, Basile Kamgang ,Aurélie P. Yougang,Flobert Njiokou,Charles S. Wondji, shows the geographical distribution and prevalence of the vector (Aedes Mosquitoes) which transmits these diseases affecting animals,humans and plants .

  • A recent study carried out in the Northern part of Cameroon by some researchers at CRID aims at determining the malaria infection rate in that part of the country, the resistance profile of Anopheles mosquito in the Guinea savanna of Cameroon. This study will help stakeholders and decision makers such as the National Malaria Control Programme in the fight against malaria to know what kind of vector control tools to apply this area.

Previous research shows that, the mosquito that transmits the malaria vector has become resistant to insecticides used in treating the mosquito bed net.  As research continues to unfurl, scientists say the PermaNet 2.0 remains efficient after exposure by reducing the life expectancy of the vectors which could contribute in malaria incidence. This scientific article assesses the effects of the exposure of the female Anopheles mosquito to treated bed nets.
