Associated to the scholarship:14/07615-3 - Impact of using insecticides to control Anopheles mosquito, vector of the Malaria causer agent plasmodium, BP.IC


Malaria is a communicable disease that affects people in many different places of the world. Sul-sabaran Africa in one of the most harmed regions and, thus, WHO started to implement insectice treated nets to combat Anopheles mosquitoes, which are vectors of the disease. However, this preventive tool may have led mosquito population to adapt in different ways. Here it is intended to develop a mathematical model based on partial differential equations to understand and study possible adaptations of Anapholes species. (AU)
