RE-EMERGING MALARIA VECTORS IN RURAL SAHEL (NOUNA, BURKINA FASO): THE PALUCLIM PROJECT
Keywords: Tele-epidemiology, remote-sensing, vectorial risk, climate change, larvicide’s strategy
Abstract. The Paluclim project applied the tele-epidemiology approach, linking climate, environment and public health (CNES, 2008), to rural malaria in Nouna (Burkina Faso). It was to analyze the climate impact on vectorial risks, and its consequences on entomological risks forecast. The objectives were to: 1) produce entomological risks maps in the Nouna region, 2) produce dynamic maps on larvae sites and their productivity, 3) study the climate impact on malaria risks, and 4) evaluate the feasibility of strategic larviciding approach.
