Westham in Africa
ATSB® is the first outdoor vector-control intervention in Africa and is currently being tested for outdoor Malaria control in a large scale field study supported by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation (BMGF).
One of Westham's main motivations for developing the ATSB® technology is to advance the vector control effort around the globe and to specifically fight Malaria in Africa. Currently, the ATSB® first vector-control intervention in Africa includes a large IVCC-supported project for outdoor Malaria control. The Proof of Concept stage was successfully completed in Mali during 2017 is now followed by three-year entomological and epidemiological trials in Kenya, Zambia and Mali. Intermediate results of the project further support our confidence that the ATSB® solution will have a transformational impact on Malaria control.
