Research

The MEI is a leader in research for malaria elimination, building off of over a decade of experience in designing, implementing, and evaluating interventions and approaches aimed at reducing the malaria burden and accelerating progress towards elimination. Evidence on vector control and entomological surveillance has been generated by the MEI through a range of research methods, including randomized controlled trials, qualitative evaluations (e.g., intervention acceptability or user-experience), landscape analyses, case studies, literature reviews, mathematical transmission modeling, and geospatial modeling, among others. Research findings and best practices are disseminated to malaria programs and through peer-reviewed journals and regional and global technical platforms and advocacy networks.
