Mosquito-borne disease prevention

Generating evidence for an innovative and complementary vector control tool

The project, Advancing Evidence for the Global Implementation of Spatial Repellents (AEGIS) will build on decades of research and generate further evidence about an innovative new tool, spatial repellents, to help prevent vector-borne diseases like malaria and dengue. The AEGIS project is made possible thanks to Unitaid’s funding and support.

Notre Dame receives its largest research award to study spatial repellents

ND will lead a five-year program to determine the efficacy of a spatial repellent product in preventing mosquito-borne diseases such as malaria, dengue and Chikungunya.

Study provides insight into spatial repellents as method to reduce infection of vector-borne diseases

Previously funded Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation trial provides data on efficacy of spatial repellents and encourages additional research.
