Here is another innovation in the malaria fight in Kenya: DRONES AGAINST MALARIA:
Over the past fifteen years, the fight against malaria improved dramatically. Insecticide-treated bed nets and indoor residual spraying resulted in an enormous reduction of the number of children dying of the disease. Unfortunately, it is not enough.
To further reduce the impact of malaria we need more. Tools that can be implemented outdoors, at the source of the problem – stagnant, sunlit water. The cradle of mosquitoes. If we stop them there, at the source, we may stop them for good.
Using drones, we will tackle the mosquito and malaria problem right at the source, starting with large-scale irrigated rice schemes. And use an environmentally sound biological control agent that can be applied in collaboration with the local (rice farming) community. So that they will suffer less from malaria and have more time to work the fields and thus generate bigger harvests.
Less malaria, more food. Simple and novel.
