As resistance to pyrethroid insecticides continues to spread and decisions about how to deploy specific interventions are becoming increasingly complex, questions remain about the best methods for layering new tools to maximize program impact. Join PATH on June 25th at 9AM EDT via Zoom (details below) as we interview experts on the effects of layering IRS and LLINs from the Unitaid-funded NgenIRS Project.

Our experts:

  • Sergi Alonso, PhD, ISGlobal in conversation with Rose Zulliger, PhD, US President’s Malaria Initiative/Center for Disease Control, Division of Parasitic Diseases and Malaria. Discussion topic: Evidence from a cluster-randomized control trial in Mopeia, Mozambique on the direct and indirect costs of IRS with non-pyrethroid insecticide in a high burden area of Mozambique with high coverage of LLINs.
  • Ellie Sherrard-Smith, PhD, Imperial College in conversation with Helen Jamet, PhD, Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. Discussion topic: Using models to make product layering decisions.
  • Joshua Yukich, PhD, Tulane University in conversation with Alexandra Cameron, PhD, Unitaid. Discussion topic: Meta-analysis of the cost and cost-effectiveness of 3GIRS products in Ghana, Mali, Mozambique, and Uganda in areas with access to LLINs.
