Contributions to Elimination of Infectious Diseases in West Africa: Lymphatic Filariasis and Malaria

Tuesday, October 12 | 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM

Professor Benajmin Koudou has more than 17 years of experience as a malaria and lymphatic filariasis (LF) control specialist. His talk will focus on new methods in the field and the efficacy of new tools, such as a motion sensor to better monitor bednet usage among endemic communities and new active ingredients against insecticide-resistant malaria vectors for reducing LF and malaria burden in endemic countries.

This program is part of Washington University’s Africa Speaks series, presented in partnership with The Africa Initiative.
