Abstract

Background

Knowledge of some baseline entomological data such as Entomological Inoculation Rates (EIR) is crucially needed to assess the epidemiological impact of malaria control activities directed either against parasites or vectors. In Chad, most published surveys date back to the 1960's. In this study, anopheline species composition and their relation to malaria transmission were investigated in a dry Sudanian savannas area of Chad.

Methods

A 12-month longitudinal survey was conducted in the irrigated rice-fields area of Goulmoun in south western Chad.

Abstract (provisional)

Background

Health facility assessments are being increasingly used to measure and monitor indicators of health workforce performance, but the global evidence base remains weak. Partly this is due to the wide variability in assessment methods and tools, hampering comparability across and within countries and over time. The World Health Organization coordinated a series of facility-based surveys using a common approach in six countries: Chad, Cote d'Ivoire, Jamaica, Mozambique, Sri Lanka and Zimbabwe.
