Women in Vector Control- Accelerate to Equal

Global vector control experts Mary Hayden, of the University of Colorado, and Kacey Ernst, of the University of Arizona, offer fresh perspectives and novel tactics against malaria, and other vector-borne diseases, which leverage women’s leadership roles in their communities to overcome barriers to successful vector control. Their work in Kenya and Indonesia, through the Accelerate to Equal Initiative, examines how women’s involvement in public health efforts against malaria could improve our success against this global health crisis.

Hayden and Ernst discuss the Accelerate to Equal project with colleagues and collaborators from around the world, including: Eggi Arguni (Universitas Gadjah Mada) Zeddy C. Bore (PMI VectorLink) Helen Amegbletor (PMI VectorLink) Prosper Chaki (Ifakara Health Institute).
