A household-level model of malaria transmission is developed to understand the role of reactive case detection in malaria elimination in diverse transmission settings.
In the Lake Kariba region of Zambia, villages with high and low malaria burden are interconnected, making elimination potentially very challenging.
In a longitudinal malaria research study, we found that low-density infections were common and primarily contribute to onward malaria transmission in a high and seasonal transmission setting.
Since the original Ross–Macdonald formulations of vector-borne disease transmission, there has been a broad proliferation of mathematical models of vector-borne disease,
Mathematical models are a helpful tool for testing assumptions and elucidating the quantitative implications of disease features.
