Challenges for malaria vector control in sub-Saharan Africa: Resistance and behavioral adaptations in Anopheles populations.

Abstract Over the past decade, global malaria-related mortality has declined dramatically because of combined international actions that have defined and prioritized national and regional efforts to reduce the incidence of malaria, with the ultimate goal of eradication. Vector control strategies using insecticide-treated nets (ITNs) and indoor residual spraying (IRS) in African countries have contributed significantly to the declining incidence of malaria. However, the effectiveness of malaria control is threatened by increasing insecticide resistance and behavioral changes in Anopheles vectors. Thus, there is an urgent need to ensure that future programmes are designed to address these threats and protect the progress made so far in controlling malaria. This review summarizes the current malaria vector control tools and discusses about the critical threats to vector control programme and vector management.
