Johns Hopkins Study: To Halt Malaria Transmission, More Research Focused on Human Behavior Needed

Researchers should not just focus on mosquito behavior when working to eliminate malaria, but must also consider how humans behave at night when the risk of being bitten by an infected mosquito is highest, new findings from the Johns Hopkins Center for Communication Programs (CCP) suggest. CCP is based at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. The review article was published in Malaria Journal last week. Ms. April Monroe, senior program officer at CCP, led the research.
