Oct 24th : Scientific Seminar 02:00 PM : ”Using interviews to understand movement patterns of people at high risk of malaria in Cambodia & Prospective surveillance study for HRP2 deletions in Cambodia”
2 talks of 2 x 20min :
Title: “Using interviews to understand movement patterns of people at high risk of malaria in Cambodia”
Speaker: Lucie ADELAIDE, Intern at the Epidemiology and Public Health unit
Cambodian forests are at high risk of malaria transmission and people’s movement patterns in forests are not well understood. The project aimed to assess the utility of a map-based interview technique to better understand movement patterns within forests of people living in malaria endemic areas of Cambodia.
Title: “Prospective surveillance study for HRP2 deletions in Cambodia”
Speaker: Emma Oliosi, epidemiology unit trainee
HRP2 deletions can lead to false-negative results when trying to diagnose Plasmodium falciparum malaria with rapid diagnostic tests. The present study aims to evaluate the proportion of Plasmodium falciparum parasite with HRP2 deletions in sselected health centers in Cambodia, the positivity rates of malaria in suspected patients and determinants of such infections. This presentation will focus on the preliminary results of this study.
